Can Chloe Deal dazzle on stage, with some help from the builders at home?

Dad's weird and wonderful extended family are coming to stay at Christmas, and in preparation the Deal house is finally going to be redecorated! Dad's taken a job in Germany to pay for it, but as the builders start work they uncover more serious problems with the house.. Will Dad ever be able to move back home? Chloe has landed a starring role in her school play, but Imogen is the lead, and being as insufferable as ever. She even has a stage-kiss with Thomas! Can Mum and the kids pull off two school plays, a house refurbishment and a supersize Deal family Christmas?

Another warm, funny family story from OUR HOUSE.

This is such a warmly written book! It shows exactly how complicated family relationships can be. The whole book get you into the crazy life of one big family - crazy is the best way to descibe it  I have 3 brothers myself and 14 cousins so I know what I'm talking about. I love the fact that everything is seen with the eyes of the little girl.
All the ups and downs of family's life can be seen in here: from relatives coming over for christmas, through dad working abroad.
I think everyone can identify with these lovely characters!!

I really, really loved this book because it was about a really, really mad house and mad family and everything they tried to do went wrong. 
I especially liked William D as he was really crazy and really chatty like me. 
I'd really like to read the other book in the series.

This is a lovely book about family and friend relationships that was easy to read and had lots of humour.  It was also easy to relate to which my daughter really enjoyed.  She loved Chloe but did not like Imogen.

Alex found this one quite tricky to get into as he hasn't read the first in the series. He also found it difficult as a boy which I found a shame.

This book is about a dad who had to go away to Germany to work because his house needed lots of repairs and he had to pay for it.  His children are crazy and there are lots of cousins in the book too.  The mum is neat and tidy and tries to organise everything.  I thought this book was a boring because there wasn't anything that really interested me. The cover might look exiting but its really boring. The characters are just like ordinary people. I did not enjoy this book.
