The preface speaks of Gerald at a family reunion, and all of the Durrells are complaining about the bad reputation they have based on the popularity of "My Family and Other Animals." Each member of the family can think of other stories from their time on Corfu which might be even worse reflections, and they forbid Gerald from writing any more.
Of course, we get this delightful sequel as a result...

I read the first book "My Family and Other Animals" to my youngest in 1989 and it's has held a sweet place in my memory since. Was delighted to find this, equally charming and irresistible sequel. It delights as much as the first. Wonderful.

Durrell revisits his childhood on Corfu – since clearly he forgot some of the best stories, according to his family. Full of beautiful and silly reminiscences of a different time, a different place.
