Ten-year-old Gerald doesn't know why his older brothers and sisters
complain so much. With snakes in the bath and scorpions on the
lunch table, the family home on the Greek island of Corfu is a bit
like a zoo so they should feel right at home... Gerald joyfully
pursues his interest in natural history in the midsts of an
unconventional and chaotic family life - all brilliantly retold in
this very funny book.
