Reviews
Gerald Durrell's My Family and Other Animals is a charming and comic autobiographical novel. Fleeing the gloomy British climate, the Durrell clan move to Corfu carrying the bare essentials of life: acne cures for Margo; revolvers for Leslie; books for Larry and a jam jar full of caterpillars for Gerry. Recounted with warmth and humour, it is a heart-warming portrait of an eccentric family surrounded by a wonderful cast of friends and fauna.

My Family and Other Animals
My Family and Other Animals is an autobiographical work by world famous naturalist Gerald Durrell; it's a wonderful account of a 10-year old boy's unconventional childhood years in Corfu. When the Durrell family can no longer endure damp climate, they do what any sensible English family would do: sell their house and relocate to the sun with a zoological menagerie of puppies, toads, scorpions, geckoes, ladybugs, glowworms, octopuses, bats, and butterflies. Cross between Roald Dahl's 'Boy' and an Attenborough documentary, this delightfully amusing account of an eclectic family is a fantastic read for young mischievous animal lovers and those longer in the tooth. - Sarah
