By the author of 'My Family and Other Animals', with his unfailing charm, Gerald Durrell tells the story of how he finally fulfilled his childhood dream of founding his own private zoo. He set up the Manor of Les Augres on the island of Jersey. With the help of an enduring wife, a selfless staff, and a reluctant bank manager, the zoo grows and readers are treated to a colourful parade of its unusual inhabitants. We meet Trumpy, the grey-winged trumpeter and village idiot, Claudius the tapir and his riotous escape, Delilah the rabble-rousing African crested porcupine, and a whole assortment of orangutans, lions, reptiles, a gorilla in the guest room and more in this menagerie. Beautiful line art illustrations throughout the text, 180pp in softback. Remainder dot.
