The fourth book in this delightfully quirky and funny series for girls told in comic-strip and featuring Glister Butterworth - girl-magnet for the weird and unusual. Glister and her father live at Chilblain Hall - home to an orchard with a remarkable collection of trees. Not least, the very special Butterworth Tree. It is said that when the Butterworth Tree blooms, a bumper crop of Butterworth relatives from past, present and future will fall. Of course, Glister longs to have a big family and dreams of cosseting aunts and devoted uncles, hoping upon hope that the tree may even bear fruit of the famed Butterworth Giant... Then, one day, her dream finally comes true. Indeed, a bumper crop of relatives does fall, but they are not so keen on playing Happy Families and soon Glister needs a swift and effective plan to stop the Butterworths from pulling themselves and Chilblain Hall apart, with quite astonishing results!

MEDIA REVIEWS
Throwing in trolls, witches, magic beans, and a battle swine named Mr Gullinbursti, Andi constantly surprises young and old with his fresh take on fairytale fantasies. -- Paul Gravett
Glister The Family Tree is a suitably fitting wacky and funny ending to this Glister quartet of books, an absolutely charming, beautifully drawn series featuring a wonderfully inventive, eccentric and downright cool female heroine. It's great for children, especially young girls, but has equal appeal to any existing fan of Watson's work, or any fan of really great comics...these four beautifully presented little works of a cartoonist absolutely at the peak of his game are something you really need to treat your bookshelf to. -- Richard Bruton * http://forbiddenplanet.co.uk *
Sheer, uncomplicated fun... will leave readers queuing for more. * The Irish Times *
...apart from the immaculate cartooning with its incredibly sturdy architecture, is that the language is far from patronising with a vocabulary that puts most superhero comics to shame: words like 'dyspeptic', 'dissonant', 'atonal' and 'philately'. Also there are many moments of parenthetical, throwaway wi. * Page 45 *
