Om Quigleys at Large
NOW AVAILABLE IN paperback, the Quigleys return in this second collection of stories. Funny and instantly recognizable from their last adventures, this time the family goes camping in France. Mum stars in the skipping competition at the local village fete; Will gets locked in his empty school; and Dad (not surprisingly) loses the pet bird. Here are four more hilarious escapades from this irrepressible yet warmly affectionate family.Simon paints a picture of a remarkably recognizable, but totally unique family. British words and spellings add to the fun. They are a family like most of oursfull of life and ridiculous, but ordinary experiences. This will be the next treat for the Hurwitz and Cleary crowd.KirkusFrom the Hardcover edition.
