- Additional Info:
- Born in India in 1925, Gerald Durrell settled on Corfu with his family as a boy, and immediately became fascinated by the island's natural history. He spent much of his time studying the local wildlife and kept numerous, and often unusual, pets. He grew up to be a famous naturalist, animal-collector and conservationist. Over his lifetime he wrote 37 books, went on dozens of animal-collecting trips and presented numerous TV shows. He founded Jersey Zoo in 1959 as a centre for the conservation of endangered species, and created the Jersey Wildlife Conservation Trust in 1963. Gerald ran the Zoo from its foundation until his death in 1995, and his wife Lee is still Honorary Director of the Trust.

I read this book many years ago and loved it . It is still one of the funniest and most interesting books I have ever read!
This was one of those books that I never wanted to end! It's a beautifully and cleverly written book, with so much charm, humour and warmth. If you love fauna you'll love this book. His descriptions of his family's antics are hilarious and whether you have visited Greece or not, you'll feel like you're in the mediterranean. It's also a great book to pass onto teenagers because it's educational as well.
