Eight Days of Luke

Eight Days of Luke - Diana Wynne Jones David has gone home for the holidays to find himself unexpected and at a loss for what to do. Then one day when he loses his temper Luke turns up, full of jokes, plans and mischief and David finds himself caught up in some serious adventures. I did catch where she was heading with this story fairly early on, and it was a fun trip. A bit of a period piece in places but fairly good and very readable.
