Isn't this an awesome book cover? That boy is really cute, but what I really love is the typography of the title! I got the book from the library after it was mentioned over on the Meet Me at Mikes blog a little while ago. I used to watch the tv series back in the day (late 80's) and I still remember the saint celebration in the church vividly.
I never read the book before, though. At the time it probably didn't occur to me that there was a book. Ah well. My Family and Other Animals is a very nice book, which I highly recommend. Perfect for light summer reading. And the slightly archaic language is quite adorable. ;-)
