Five more stories about the irrepressible Quigleys (and including a surprise guest appearance from next-door neighbour's cat, Fatbrain). Will makes a huge effort to get on with the sullen Robinson Potts, an unwelcome visitor on the family's weekend away. Lucy desperately hopes that her birthday party will occur without mishap even though Dad is promising to make it an event to remember...and Mum gets stuck on the roof - with Fatbrain.
In the fourth book of the series, Simon Mason reveals the charm and humour in the everyday life of an ordinary (yet unique) family. These are perfect stories for reading aloud, and for young children to read by themselves.

"Huge fun. It's reassuring too and shows that even families who drive each other bonkers love each other" * The Sunday Times *
"Mason's prose is gently humourous but he also gets at the often-unspoken truth of family life: that what can go wrong will go wrong and that however much you plan, things seldom turn out as you expect" * Guardian *
"Difficult not to laugh out loud" * Through the Looking Glass *
