Mr Large In Charge

Publisher: Walker Books

Review

Mr Large confidently announces he will be in charge for the day and sets about organising the house and children.

Despite their best intentions none of the family seems quite able to stifle the gentle chaos that ensues in the house, as Mr Large struggles to keep control.

Ultimately, although she doesn't get the day of rest she had wanted, Mrs Large realises that the biggest treat of all is to be with her chaotic but loving family.

A welcome return for Jill Murphy's beautifully illustrated Large family; parents and children alike will identify with her realistic and funny portrayal of family relationships.
