Synopsis: ?Shouldn?t we be orphans?? one of the Willoughby children suggests one day. The four are, after all, part of an old-fashioned kind of family, and their parents ? well, their parents are not all that one would hope for. Recalling literary heroes like Anne of Green Gables, Pollyanna and James with his giant peach, the Willoughbys concoct a diabolical plan to turn themselves into worthy and winsome orphans. Little do they know that Mr and Mrs Willoughby have already begun to formulate their own thoroughly despicable plan inspired by another favourite bedtime story: The tale of Hansel and Gretel...

Review: It's recommended for eight-10 years but anyone up to treble digits would enjoy the black humour of Lowry's novel. ( Bookseller )
