MY FAMILY AND OTHER ANIMALS meets OUTNUMBERED in a funny and charming story about an eccentric, loveable family.
Chloe Deal is observant. Every day she notices small details - like how Front Door always refuses to open when it's raining; how whatever task he sets out to do, Daddy usually ends up snoozing to the radio in his shed; how her younger sister Daisy muddles her similes but never her fashion sense, and how Mummy's nostrils flare when Dad forgets to mow the lawn, again.
So when Chloe starts a school project about her house, she ends up cataloguing the chaotic balancing act of her family along with it.
In the run up to the school holidays (and Chloe's birthday), disaster follows disaster at home and school.
Mummy's patience is beginning to unravel. Can Chloe get the house, her siblings and her father in shape before it's too late?
