*The classic trilogy set in sun-soaked Corfu that inspired ITV's acclaimed TV series The Durrells*
Three classic tales of childhood on an island paradise - My Family and Other Animals, Birds, Beasts and Relatives and The Garden of the Gods by Gerald Durrell - are available in a single edition for the first time in The Corfu Trilogy.
Just before the Second World War the Durrell family decamped to the glorious, sun-soaked island of Corfu where the youngest of the four children, ten-year-old Gerald, discovered his passion for animals: toads and tortoises, bats and butterflies, scorpions and octopuses.
Through glorious silver-green olive groves and across brilliant-white beaches Gerry pursued his obsession... causing hilarity and mayhem in his ever-tolerant family.
