Alison’s Uncles


Alison Greaves is living in a Children’s Home when she finds out she has four uncles. To decide which one will be her guardian she is trying each uncle out in turn. The first three uncles don’t work out: the first was just after her money; Alison met a jealous, scheming cousin with the second; and the third was uncaring and just looked on Alison as a novelty. So it all comes down to whether the fourth does.

One thought on “Alison’s Uncles

  1. The reprint of ‘Alison’s Uncles’ started in MANDY 1190 (November 4 1989), not the previous week. A full-page advert in 1189 states clearly that four ‘Ace New Stories’ will be starting the following week. The other three were ‘The Secret Of Magora’s Pool’, ‘In Search Of Sara’, and ‘Two Times Trouble’.
