Synopsis

The Quigleys At Large by Simon Mason

The Quigleys are back in this second collection of stories. Funny and instantly recognisable, the family go on a camping holiday to France, Mum stars in the skipping competition at the local village fete, Will gets locked in his empty school at night, and Dad (unsurprisingly) loses the budgie. Four more hilarious stories from this irrepressible and warmly affectionate family.

Reviews

An easy-to-read book which describes family life kindly and humourously, while also showing just why it can be so very annoying. Mason's deft understatement gives each story enormous charm and warmth * Guardian * Irresistable . . . Reads like episodes in the life of a real family . . . It will make children laugh and parents wince at the way they can Get It Wrong * The Sunday Times * Written in a breezy, approachable style which is great for reading aloud * TES * This family saga is always a delight
