Mother the charming dimwit insists on a picnic to celebrate one of brother Larry's rare visits to England--just what that supercilious literary gent is most likely to loathe. The Durrells embark on a battered Greek tub--that ""would have been rejected,"" cracks Larry, ""by the Ancient Mariner in his cups""--and, sure enough, sister Margot gets stuck in a lavatory stall, the bar has no ice, etc. An old flame of Gerry's turns up in Venice, as irresistibly attractive and impossibly meddlesome as ever no thanks to her, an irate husband shows up his wife's callow young lover.
In ""The Havoc of Havelock,"" Gerry's set of Havelock Ellis' writings has multiple repercussions among the staff of a Bournemouth hotel. Family anecdotes and trivia--for Durrell addicts only. The format, vocabulary and art work well here to encourage kids to read on their own and have fun doing it.
