To visit Corfu with Gerald Durrell is to feed on honey-dew and drink the milk of paradise. Lyrical, sharply observant and wildly funny, he evokes the rapture of the small boy discovering the world about him.

Gerald Durrell was born in India and grew up in England and on the Greek island of Corfu. A world-famous conservationist and humorist, he runs the Jersey Wildlife Preservation Trust and is also the author of more than a dozen books, including The Aye-Aye and I.
The enchanted island of Corfu was home to Gerald Durrell and his family for five years before the Second World War. For the passionate young zoologist, Corfu was a natural paradise, teeming with strange birds and beasts that he could collect watch and care for. But life was not without its problems - Gerald’s family often objected to his animal-collecting activities, especially when the beasts wound up in the family’s villa or even worse - the fridge.
