The follow up to My Family and Other Animals and the second book in The
Corfu Trilogy, the beloved books that inspired ITV's television series The
Durrells. Just before the Second World War the Durrell family decamped to
the glorious, sun-soaked island of Corfu where the youngest of the four
children, ten-year-old Gerald, discovered his passion for animals: toads
and tortoises, bats and butterflies, scorpions and octopuses. Through
glorious silver-green olive groves and across brilliant-white beaches Gerry
pursued his obsession . . . causing hilarity and mayhem in his ever-
tolerant family.
