When Mother starts showing an interest in passion-flowers the children decide it is time she got married again.

The romantic island of Corfu is unable to produce many suitable candidates, but there is the 18-year-old who runs the fish stall, Professor Eurpides Androtheomatacottopolous, or the dashing Hollywood actor, Antoine de Vere...

Meanwhile young Gerry is more concerned about the marital affairs of his toads than those of his mother in the title story of this hilarious collection of tales.

    " The humour is classic British. And each story in the collection paints a hilarious shade of laughter every time you return to it. There's no fatigue factor written into these tales, and they are brilliant in their narratives. I'd recommend you read them a hundred times over! "

    " Gerald Durrell can always make me smile - his tales are humorous, lively, and full of wonderful creatures. "

    " Picked this book off my ReadMe shelf for a bit of light reading in between the Crusades, only to discover I'd already read it -- duh! But I dashed through most of the stories again. Entertaining, but not as good as My Family and Other Animals and other Durrell books. "

    " Well Gerry you did it again. I especially liked the story of the kids trying to marry off Mom. "
