A wonderful memoir of the youngest of a loopy family living in the Greek isles. His adventures in collecting a wide spectrum of animals, the quirkiness of his family and the delightful island characters provide a wam and often hilarious read.


Hilarity in a Mad English Family

by firizarry on Dec 9, 2010

This is a very funny book about a kooky English family who moves to Greece written from the point of view of the youngest brother , a ten-year old who collects insects , birds and reptiles much to the chagrin of the rest of the family.


Dangerous! Will Give Laugh LInes

by MariaUmar on Jul 2, 2007

This is the best non-fiction book I have read in a while. Hilarious! Gerald Durrell tells the story of his life with his mother and siblings, moving out of England into Greece, his love for nature and animals. He is truly gifted in his observation of people and his sense of humour.
