This is the first book in a wonderfully amusing series about the chaotic Quigleys. Written in a fresh, witty and original manner, each member of the family - Lucy, Will, Dad and Mum - has their own tale to tell. Lucy only wants to be a bridesmaid dressed as a bee. Will only wants a Harpy Eagle for Christmas. Dad only wants to watch the football in peace. Mum only wants - well, who cares what Mum wants? Whether it's babysitting problems, the difficulty of being good as Christmas approaches or simply how to watch the football without interruptions, the quirky escapades of the Quigleys will appeal to adults and children alike.
Five more stories about the irrepressible Quigleys (and including a surprise guest appearance from next-door neighbour's cat, Fatbrain). Will makes a huge effort to get on with the sullen Robinson Potts, an unwelcome visitor on the family's weekend away. Lucy desperately hopes that her birthday party will occur without mishap even though Dad is promising to make it an event to remember...and Mum gets stuck on the roof - with Fatbrain.
In the fourth book of the series, Simon Mason reveals the charm and humour in the everyday life of an ordinary (yet unique) family. These are perfect stories for reading aloud, and for young children to read by themselves.
The Quigleys are back in this second collection of stories. Funny and instantly recognisable, the family go on a camping holiday to France, Mum stars in the skipping competition at the local village fete, Will gets locked in his empty school at night, and Dad (unsurprisingly) loses the budgie. Four more hilarious stories from this irrepressible and warmly affectionate family.
The Quigleys are back! When the family visits a smart hotel, Will gets into all sorts of trouble when he tries to be charming - which has interesting results. And on Mother's Day, the family walk turns into an unforgettable adventure when the terrifying Pokehead saves Lucy from an equally terrifying bull. Here are four more hilarious stories about this unforgettable yet entirely recognizable family.
