Summary

Meet the Lotterys: a unique and diverse family featuring four parents, seven kids and five pets - all living happily together in their big old house, Camelottery. Nine-year-old Sumac is the organizer of the family and is looking forward to a long summer of fun.

But when their grumpy and intolerant grandad comes to stay, everything is turned upside down. How will Sumac and her family manage with another person to add to their hectic lives?

Internationally best-selling author Emma Donoghue's first novel for children is funny, charming and full of heart.

Critic reviews

"The Lotterys, a family very much of our century, star in this story about the true meaning of acceptance and belonging.... Full of clever names and wordplay, this engaging tale is moving without veering into sentimentality. For all the Lotterys' apparent eccentricity, the novel delves into universal themes of family relationships that will resonate with readers from all backgrounds." (Kirkus Reviews)
