Menagerie Manor was the second of Gerald Durrell’s books I read, just after My Family and Other Animals. First, it is a quintessentially Durrell book, with all the charm and style Gerry had become famous for in the dozen books he had already written. This was some time ago, during my student days in Madagascar. Poetic and graceful, amusingly sardonic on occasion, but always affectionate, Menagerie Manor is an effortless read.

With the help of an enduring wife, a selfless staff and a reluctant bank manager, the zoo grows.

by Philippa Forrester. Gerald Durrell represented everything I wanted to be: a conservationist, clear thinking and dedicated, brave enough to follow a dream; a writer, able to whisk me to foreign lands and then abandon me in fits of giggles; above all, a man with a grand passion.

Durrell has tales to tell about his animals and tells them in a most descriptive way. This is the second of his books which I have read.

This is a tremendous animal wildlife book that I didn't want to see end. I first heard of Gerald Durrell from the PBS series of The Durrells of Corfu and until reading this book had no idea of this great man's work and of the books he has written. I intend to read more of his works and heartily recommend this one to you.

I have watched the PBS series of the Durrells on Corfu and throughly enjoyed it. Then I discovered this delightful book and readily equated the author to the youngest son in the series. This book is every time thing I expected it to be - delightful and entertaining.

I had already read this some years ago and bought this copy as a Christmas present for a seventh grader who said she liked non-fiction. I'm waiting to hear what she thought of it but know she will be delighted as it's so readable and great for all ages. FinnGirl
