Return once again to the Casson family as they verge on disaster but always pull together as a family by the end of the story. Rose is being left alone more and more as her sister Caddy has left, Saffy is busy with friends and school, Indigo is into his music, her father is away living in London, and her mother is in her shed feeling ill. But maybe it's worse when one of Indigo's friends moves his drum set in and ruins her latest painting. Certainly it is worse when she finally realizes what she has agreed to do with her friends at the zoo! But it is far too late to back out by then.

McKay has such a deft hand with characters. They are constantly surprising but true to themselves. She is particularly wonderful at creating people with true flaws, but also making sure they are not only lovable but loved. While one doesn't wish to move in with the family, one would love to know them and be part of their world.

Once again, a Casson novel that triumphs. Highly recommended for readers ages 10-14, but only if they have read the rest of the series!
