All the colours of the rainbow – but pure gold through and through. The Cassons aren’t like other families. All the kids are named after paints, for a start! There’s Caddy (Cadmium Gold), the oldest: a goddess-like beauty whose life would be perfect if only she could pass her driving test! Next is adopted cousin Saffy (Saffron Yellow). Then there’s guitar-strumming dreamer Indigo Blue. Last is the baby, Permanent Rose, who hates school, loves painting, and is always sucking her knees. Their mum, Eve is usually painting in the garden shed. Daddy’s off in London with his girlfriend. So, what with school bullies to beat, friends to help and family secrets to discover, it’s lucky that the Casson kids know how to look out for one another!
- A gem of a series from a brilliantly talented author
- All six of the much-lauded Casson Family novels
- Written with beautiful clarity: warm, wise and touching
- Saffy’s Angel was the Whitbread Children’s Book of the Year
- Hilary McKay won the 2018 Costa Prize for The Skylarks’ War
