  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2006 June #1
    Gr. 6-9. McKay's fourth novel about the Casson family begins with every child's nightmare: while listening to a ghost story at school, nine-year-old Rose wets herself. Once again, McKay creates a sly, jovial portrait of an English family that pitches toward minor disasters only to be rescued by its own loving, eccentric members. Narrated in the voices of the three youngest Cassons (Rose, Indigo, and Saffron), whose passages sometimes employ lists and appendixes, the novel is more fragmented than its predecessors, and readers meeting the Cassons for the first time may wish for more background. Despite that, the crowd of voices echoes a large family, with each person trying to be heard, and the dramas, from older sister Caddy's engagement to Rose's thrilling discovery of "a flying feeling," are as wild and endearing as ever. Readers will also delight in the precise, human details, narrated by children who miss nothing: "Tired people cannot learn," says Rose's teacher as she dumps a handful of markers into her full coffee cup. Another charmer for Casson fans. ((Reviewed June 1 & 15, 2006)) Copyright 2006 Booklist Reviews.
