The adventures of the large, rumbustious Ruggles family The Ruggles family, Mr. Ruggles, his wife and their seven children, of Number 1, One End Street, face poverty with cheerfulness and goodness - it is just part of life. Rosie is warm and loving but fiercely angry over any waste of money. So the children are experts at finding entertainment that costs no money - but this often leads to unexpected exploits...from stout Lily Rose, whose good deeds don't always work as she intends, to baby William, who earns glory at the Baby Show. The seven Ruggles children are lovable and individual - and their adventures are endlessly enjoyable! This is a timeless classic tale from the pen of a passionate writer.

About the Author:

Eve Garnett was born in 1900 in Worcestershire, and studied art at Chelsea Polytechnic and the Royal Academy School of Art.

The Family from One End Street was originally published by Frederick Muller in 1937, followed by The Further Adventures of the Family from One End Street in 1956, and Holiday at Dew Drop Inn in 1962. She died in 1991.
