My Family and Other Animals, Hardback Book

My Family and Other Animals Hardback

Part of the Macmillan Collector's Library series

Description

The inspiration behind ITV's hit family drama, The Durrells. My Family and Other Animals is Gerald Durrell's hilarious account of five years in his childhood spent living with his family on the island of Corfu.

With snakes, scorpions, toads, owls and geckos competing for space with one bookworm brother and another who's gun-mad, as well as an obsessive sister, young Gerald has an awful lot of natural history to observe.

This richly detailed, informative and riotously funny memoir of eccentric family life is a twentieth-century classic. This edition features an afterword by Peter Olney, former Keeper of Birds at the London Zoo, and a distinguished ornithologist who was awarded the Zoological Society of London's Silver Medal in 2003. Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles.

Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure.
