Synopsis:
"Home looks nice. Allus does though, don't it? Perfick' And so the Larkins - Pop, Ma, Mariette, Zinnia, Petunia, Primrose, Victoria and Montgomery - return from an outing for fish and chips and ice cream one May evening. There, amid the rustic charms of home, they discover a visitor: one Cedric Charlton, Her Majesty's inspector of taxes. Mr Charlton is visiting to find out why junk-dealer Pop hasn't paid his tax - but nothing's that simple at the Larkins. Mariette takes a shine to 'Charley' - as Pop calls him - and before long the family have introduced the uncomplaining inspector to the delights of country living: the lusty scents of wild flowers, the pleasures of a bottle of Dragon's Blood, cold cream dribbled over a bowl of strawberries and hot, hot summer nights. In fact, soon Charley can't see any reason to return to the office at all ..."

I must admit, I have never before heard of the Larkins ... I know, shame on me! ;) But it does look like something I would like. And thanks for the CD as well. Finnish metal has a great reputation around these parts. Big hugs and kisses from Belgium!

This is a perfectly wonderful little book.It is just beaming with the most positive attitude you'll ever come across. It made me smile and dream of my own little house to be, with its beautiful garden and cherrytrees, peartrees and other delicious fruit ripe for the picking.
Thanks for sending it to me Soozreader, I enjoyed it a lot!

The Larkins seem to be travelling a lot between countries with the same languages spoken ;)
The came back to Finland today, arrived at Helsinki this time. We're both very happy with this first book in the series and are looking forward to reading it, great fans as we were of the TV-series...
