Five more stories about the irrepressible Quigleys (and including a surprise guest appearance from next-door neighbour's cat, Fatbrain). Will makes a huge effort to get on with the sullen Robinson Potts, an unwelcome visitor on the family's weekend away. Lucy desperately hopes that her birthday party will occur without mishap even though Dad is promising to make it an event to remember...and Mum gets stuck on the roof - with Fatbrain. In the fourth book of the series, Simon Mason reveals the charm and humour in the everyday life of an ordinary (yet unique) family. These are perfect stories for reading aloud, and for young children to read by themselves.
Simon Mason has written three adult novels. The Quigleys in a Spin is his fourth book for children. He lives in Oxford with his wife and two children. Helen Stephens studied illustration at Glasgow School of Art before moving to London where she currently lives as a full-time author/illustrator. She has had several picture books published.
