Children and adults alike love Jill Murphy’s stories of Mrs Large and her unruly family. In this story, Mrs Large is trying to get ready for a long-awaited evening out, interrupted at every stage by her children. ‘Can’t I just have one night in the year to myself?’ she bellows at last, ‘One night when I’m not covered in jam and poster paint?’ The joke of course is that no, she can’t. Every mum in the land will know just how Mrs Large feels, and every child will laugh at her naughty children. Family life has never been better observed and the book deserves its status as a modern classic. ~ Andrea Reece
