Collected together for the first time, this slipcase contains all five Large Family stories - "Five Minutes Peace", "All in One Piece", "A Piece of Cake", "A Quiet Night in" and "Mr Large in Charge" - created by the bestselling author/illustrator, Jill Murphy. Family life has never been more charming than in these humorous stories, now accompanied by a 37-minute CD featuring unabridged storytellings with music, hilariously narrated by Miriam Margolyes.
