Rate this:
A charming tale of life in the Bell family from the much-loved author of Ballet Shoes , with original illustrations by Shirley Hughes

Meet the big, happy Bell family who live in the vicarage at St. Marks. Father is a reverend, Mother is as kind as kind can be. Then there are the children--practical Paul, dancing Jane, mischievous Ginnie, and finally the baby of the family, Angus, whose ambition is to own a private zoo (he has already begun with his six boxes of caterpillars). And not forgetting Esau, a sure fire competitor for the most beautiful dog in Britain. Follow their eventful lives from tense auditions to birthday treats; from troubled times to hilarious escapades. Exclusive material in the back of the book includes a chance to find out which one of the Bell children you most resemble.
