This is one of the only things I'll still turn the TV on for. Hooray for my favorite books being adapted to media. First The Wee Free Men and now My Family and Other Animals. So anyone who wants to have something to do on the 9th of April on a Sunday evening, this should be it. Why? I can't speak for the actual film but the book itself is a sun-drenched honey-dipped strawberry of a treat.

You can read the beginning of the novel here (scroll down past the birds): http://www.shoarns.com/MyFamilyandOtherAnimals.htm It's been a favorite of mine for seven years and I've read and reread it too many times to count.

“How long did it take six men to build a wall if three of them took a week? I recall that we spent almost as much time on this problem as the men spent on the wall.”
