Description

“In a bid to escape the damp, grey English climate, the Durrell family decamp to Corfu, lock, stock and barrel (quite literally in the case of the gun-toting Leslie). It is here that the budding naturalist Gerard comes into his own, filling their home with geckos, scorpions, bats and all sorts of creepy crawlies. Charming and hilarious, it will warm your heart, like the warm Mediterranean sunshine.” Ann

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.
