Product Description

The Cassons just 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), who longs to find out who her real dad is. Indigo Blue is the dreamer, strumming his guitar up on the roof. Last there’s the baby, Permanent Rose, who hates school, loves painting, and is always sucking her knees. Mum Eve is usually painting in the garden shed, and Daddy’s off in London with his new girlfriend. So what with school bullies to beat and family secrets to discover, it’s lucky that the Casson kids know how to look out for one another!

Written with beautiful clarity, and guaranteed to make you laugh and cry, these warm, wise family stories are solid gold through and through.

“Just the sort of crazy family you ache to be a part of.” The Good Book Guide

“We are so fond of this fresh, funny, foolish, wise, real family.” The Horn Book Magazine
