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. These are four more hilarious stories from this irrepressible and warmly affectionate family.
