Description

The follow up to My Family and Other Animals and the second book in The Corfu Trilogy, the beloved books that inspired ITV’s television series The Durrells.

In this second collection of tales concerning the Durrell family on the island of Corfu, young Gerry continues to be captivated by the fascinating flora and fauna of their adopted home – much to the bemusement and upset of his long suffering siblings and mother.

Whether it’s lamp fishing by night or roving the countryside with his mentor Theodore, Gerry encounters intoxicated hedgehogs, tarantulas, dung beetles, water spiders and other animals, some of which become the family’s very unwanted pets.

‘A wild and amusing chronicle’ Daily Express

‘This book, an evocation of a budding naturalist’s life as a boy on Corfu, will delight many readers, even those who can’t stand spiders…’ Evening Standard

‘Delightful, charming, funny’ The Times
