My Family and Other Animals

Gerald Durrell

‘What we all need,’ said Larry, ‘is sunshine…a country where we can grow.“Yes, dear, that would be nice,’ agreed Mother, not really listening. ‘I had a letter from George this morning - he says Corfu’s wonderful. Why don’t we pack up and go to Greece?’‘Very well, dear, if you like,’ said Mother unguardedly. Escaping the ills of the British climate, the Durrell family - acne-ridden Margo, gun-toting Leslie, bookworm Lawrence and budding naturalist Gerry, along with their long suffering mother and Roger the dog - take off for the island of Corfu.But the Durrells find that, reluctantly, they must share their various villas with a menagerie of local fauna - among them scorpions, geckos, toads, bats and butterflies.Recounted with immense humour and charm My Family and Other Animals is a wonderful account of a rare, magical childhood.
