Perfect for reading aloud with young children or for them to read by themselves. Kids will love the adventures of this accident prone family. This book has five mini stories.

Synopsis

Quigleys In A Spin by Simon Mason

Fourth in the series, this book contains five stories about the irrepressible Quigleys (including a surprise guest appearance from next-door neighbour's cat, Fatbrain). These stories reveal the charm and humour in the everyday life of an ordinary (yet unique) family and are suitable for young children to read by themselves.

Reviews

Huge fun. It's reassuring too and shows that even families who drive each other bonkers love each other The Sunday Times Mason's prose is gently humourous but he also gets at the often-unspoken truth of family life: that what can go wrong will go wrong and that however much you plan, things seldom turn out as you expect Guardian Difficult not to laugh out loud Through the Looking Glass
