My Family and Other Animals is the bewitching account of a rare and magical childhood on the island of Corfu by treasured British conservationist Gerald Durrell.

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.

'Durrell has an uncanny knack of discovering human as well as animal eccentricities' Sunday Telegraph

'A bewitching book' Sunday Times

“My family and other animals”

A book I enjoyed several years ago and spurred on by the recent tv series decided it would be a fantastic choice for my 13 year old granddaughter who quite clearly doesn't enjoy reading
