I could hardly believe my eyes. A cold mantle of white was rapidly transforming our sunny paradise into a bizarre winterscape of citrus Christmas trees, cotton wool palms and snowball oranges.

When the Kerr family leave Scotland to grow oranges in a secluded valley on the island of Mallorca they are surprised to be greeted by the same freezing weather they have left behind. Then they realise that their new orange farm is a bit of a lemon...

Laughter, finds Peter Kerr, is the best medicine when faced with a local dish of rats and the live-chicken-down-a-chimney technique of household maintenance. But their Mallorcan neighbours help them adapt to their new life. Snowball Oranges is hilarious and revealing, full of life and colour, set against the breathtaking beauty of the Mediterranean.

MEDIA REVIEWS

`A Year in Provence by Peter Mayle was one of the great hits of travel writing - and now there could well be another, this time with a rich and tasty Spanish flavour' * The Scots Magazine *
`Beautifully written and amusing . . . a comparison with A Year in Provence cannot be avoided and Snowball Oranges should with justification be equally well received' * Adventure-mag.com *
`Immensely engaging and amusing' * Alternative Mallorca *
`It's a really funny read and had me laughing out loud on my journey to work' * Family Circle *
`Peter Kerr writes with a combination of nice observation and gentle humour' * The Sunday Times *
