Blokes on a Plane is the third book in the Windy Mountain series and I was excited to find the “blokes” in question are two of my favorite characters from the first two books. Although young in the first book, Oodles and Wish-Wash are now two old codgers and their hilarious banter through Blokes keeps the story moving at a funny pace. While Oodles is a retired works foreman at the Windy Mountain Council, Wish-Wash was THE town drunk for thirteen years, setting standards too high for the ones that followed.
The fun begins when Wish-Wash wins a contest to fly to Donegal, home of his ancestors and decides to take Oodles with him. Before the trip, strange things begin happening in town and the two old men turn into amateur detectives, trying to solve the disappearances of an ex-mayor, town signs, town bench and the big bronze statue of Colonel Northan from the middle of the street. What ensues is a crazy story that includes a lesson in the death of print newspapers (along with fake news), the continued hunt for the Tasmanian Tiger (Oodles and Wish-Wash are now the owners of the Windy Mountain Tasmanian Tiger Museum) and Wish-Wash’s outrageous, mismatched outfits (can you say “fashion train wreck”).
Will the “blokes” actually get on the plane? Join Oodles and Wish-Wash to find out in another Windy Mountain story that is guaranteed to make you smile.
