Rose knows that nothing stays the same forever.

Still, it's hard to watch her sisters and brother growing up and moving so far ahead of her. Caddy is back, but she's not living at home. And worse -- she's broken up with Darling Michael. Saffy and Indigo are so busy, they are seldom home. With her father in London and her mother painting in the shed, Rose is often alone in the house.

Maybe that's why she agrees to her new friend Molly's crazy scheme. At least it seems crazy when Rose finds herself locked in the zoo at night with a roaring tiger. Maybe she should have been paying more attention to what Molly was saying. But on that spooky night, Rose finds out a secret that just might change everything -- and help bring her family and friends together and new life to their old house.

Hilary McKay infuses her charming characters with much love and laughter in this final visit with the delightfully daffy Casson family.

Review:

'stylishly written, acutely observed, light-headed and often very funny. At times, it's also incredibly touching and insightful, particularly when dealing with the complexities of family life ... quality writing for children.' * School Librarian * '... hugely entertaining story effortlessly recreates a tightly knit world, imbued with a strong sense of belonging - a slice of childhood so multi-layered, touching and real that there's something for every child reader to identify with and savour. Here's a book that truly proves the joys to be had from reading.' * Books for Keeps * 'Warm, witty and wise, with unfeasibly broad appeal and proven anti-depressive properties, i would give this book to 9-year olds, teenagers and their parents.' * Sunday Telegraph * Hilary McKay's strength lies in her understanding of young people and her ability to evoke them very simply. * The Guardian * McKay has a genius for domestic comedy. * The Sunday Times * '... touching and hiarious. Beautifully crafted descriptive language makes this offering a real gem.' * School Library Journal * '... as wild and endearing as ever ... Another charmer for Casson fans.' * Booklist * '... we are so fond of this fresh, funny, foolish, wise, real family.' * The Horn Book Magazine * 'it's wonderful to have more stories about the engaging and uncommon Casson family!' * Parents Express * 'just the sort of crazy family you ache to be a part of.' * The Good Book Guide * 'Hilary McKay's wittily observed portrayals of family life are full of warmth, vitality and irrepressible good humour.' * Kate Agnew, The Guardian * 'It does what we hope JK Rowling would do: it makes everything you wish for come true, including the unlikeliest of outcomes.' * Sunday Times * 'A crazily fantastic story with loads of mad and hilarious moments.' * Independent on Sunday * 'Witty, warm and humourous ... family reading par excellence.' * Carousel *
