My Family and Other Animals by Gerald Durell (paperback)


Author: Gerald Durell

Ten-year-old Gerald doesn't know why his older brothers and sisters complain so much. 

With snakes in the bath and scorpions on the lunch table, the family home on the Greek island of Corfu is a bit like a zoo so they should feel right at home... 

Gerald joyfully pursues his interest in natural history in the midst of an unconventional and chaotic family life - all brilliantly retold in this very funny book.
