Author Gerald Durrell
Year Group 5
This book is a true story of how Gerald Durrell, his brothers, Larry and Leslie, and sister Margo and mother, as well as Roger the dog, moved from England to the Greek island of Corfu and how Gerald turned the house into a zoo. His animals tortured the rest of the family and his descriptions had me killing myself with laughter.
Gerald Durrell went on to become a famous animal collector for British zoos.
I think the book is aimed towards people who enjoy nature, humour and chaotic siblings.
My funniest part is when Larry states that mother's bathing suit would definitely suit her if she grew another three or four arms and legs to go with it.
