Winner of the Guardian Children's Award and first in the highly acclaimed EXILES series.

The Conroys are no ordinary family. For a start, they don't have a television. Nor are they allowed to keep pets. And Mr and Mrs Conroy never take their daughters - Ruth, Naomi, Rachel and Phoebe - on holiday.

But then Mr and Mrs Conroy inherit GBP5000, and, to their daughters' dismay, decide to spend it redecorating the house over the summer. So the girls are packed off to Big Grandma's house for the holidays, where lots of chores and horribly long walks await them.

At first it seems as though Big Grandma is determined to put a stop to any fun. But, being Conroys, the girls soon find novel ways to entertain themselves, and start having as many adventures and mishaps as usual . . . and after a while, even Big Grandma doesn't seem so bad . . .

MEDIA REVIEWS
'I can't think of a girl aged between eight and eighteen who wouldn't enjoy this little gem of a book.' * Jill Murphy, The Bookbag *
'The characters are beautifully developed ... recorded with such humour and sensitivity that it is an engrossing, sometimes laugh-out-loud story.' * Write Away *
McKay has created a boisterous, chaotic family which always makes me want to rush out and adopt three sisters. * TES *

PRAISE FOR THE CASSON FAMILY BOOKS:
'Hilary McKay's wittily observed portrayals of family life are full of warmth, vitality and irrepressible good humour.'

* Kate Agnew, The Guardian *
McKay has a genius for domestic comedy. * The Sunday Times *
Hilary McKay's strength lies in her understanding of young people and her ability to evoke them very simply. * The Guardian *
