WOW. WOW. WOW!
One of my favorite books ever, and I plan to steal a part of the title (as is VALID per copyright law) for one of my next books.
I was made to read this book, as part of my elocution(/English) classes, in Ceylon in the 1960s. I think I was about 12. I can still quote sentences from it! It made quite the impression and impact. I may have read it more than once. I still have a copy — though not the original I had in Ceylon.
I know the kids will LOVE it. So will YOU. This will put Corfu on the map.
Gerald Durrell is a tremendous writer and QUITE the MAN. One of my heroes. His brother is also a famous writer.
Do yourself a HUGE favor and DVR this.
You will THANK ME.
