Publisher's Summary

The Durrell family returns to the island of Corfu, continuing the story begun in My Family and Other Animals. Already an ardent naturalist at the age of 10, the young Gerald lives in an unconventional and disordered household with his mother, sister, and two brothers. Convivial and open, the family plays host to a constant stream of quirky guests. But for Gerald, the main attraction is the wildlife of Corfu.

Read by Nigel Davenport....

Nigel Davenport is best narrator for a British male narrative voice... as an insomniac child I use to pass out to the Corfu series through to his dulcet tones on a tape version and he brilliant captures Durrell's wry but slightly heavy sense of humour. I would thoroughly recommend this as an audiobook experience.
