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 bride's maid 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.
This is Book 1 in the The Quigleys Series. See all The Quigleys books here.
