About this book
Special 50th anniversary edition of Durrell's timelessly funny autobiographical classic. Illustrator Chris Riddell has provided a fresh and appealing new jacket design. Ages: 10+.
Sometimes it's pretty hard to tell them apart - my family and the animals, that is. I don't know why my brothers and sisters complain so much. With snakes in the bath and scorpions on the lunch table, our house, on the island of Corfu, is a bit like a circus. So they should feel right at home.
