The Casson Family Pack
The Cassons just aren’t like other people’s families. All the kids are named after paints, for a start! There’s Caddy (Cadmium Gold), the oldest: a goddess-like beauty whose life would be perfect… if only she could pass her driving test! Next is adopted cousin Saffy (Saffron Yellow), who wants to know who her real dad is. Indigo Blue is the dreamer, strumming his guitar up on the roof. Last there’s the baby, Permanent Rose, who hates school, loves painting, and is always sucking her knees. Mum Eve is usually painting in the garden shed, and Daddy’s off in London with his new girlfriend. So, what with school bullies to beat, friends to help and family secrets to discover, it’s lucky that the Casson brothers and sisters know how to look out for one another!
Written with beautiful clarity, and guaranteed to make you laugh and cry, these light-hearted, warm, wise family stories are solid gold through and through.
