My Family And Other Animals

My Family and Other Animals is Gerald Durrell's comic gem of a book, the classic story of his upper-class English eccentric family, whose antics persist on disrupting his enthralling natural history escapades on the sunny, pre-package holiday Greek island of 1930s Corfu.

Recounted with immense humour and charm, this is a wonderful account of a rare, magical childhood.
