The Lovereading4Kids comment

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.


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.

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

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

Sam Bateman and family

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
