Read full description of the books:



This is such a well written book in which all the members of the family receive equal attention. The structure is cool: there are four short stories, one about Dad, one about Lucy, one about Mum and one about Will. The book falls into a genre a friend of mine calls "The Family Down the Street", which I think is my favourite genre. This is narrative of incident, gentle "real-life" stories about utterly believable characters in relatable scenarios. The adults and children are flawed and loveable, the grown ups make mistake and get cross and drink the occasional beer and run out of money and have to borrow it from their kids' piggy banks. I love these people.

I bought it for my kids (6 & 9) but after hearing snatches with them, I listened to it on my own and it was a pure delight listen.

9 year old: I think it's a good and imaginative story, with weird names.
Me: What, Lucy and Will?
9 year old (who can't talk since she's a girl called Fred): And Pokehead! There's one called Pokehead.
Me: Oh yeah.

Me: What do you think of the Quigleys?
6 yo: Um
Me: Who's your favourite character?
6 yo: Pokehead. What are you doing?
Me (explains)
6 year old: (asks questions)
Me: Just tell me what you thought of it.
6 year old: I like the name The Quigleys. I like the Dad.
Me: with his distracted hair?
9 year old: He's always distracted, all over.
