9780141317168: The Family from One End Street: And Some of Their Adventures (Puffin Modern Classics)

This is the story of everyday life in the big, happy Ruggles family who live in the small town of Otwell. The father is a dustman and the mother a washerwoman, but because they are poor the children find even greater opportunities for adventure in their ordinary lives. There's practical Lily Rose, the oldest who is full of 'Big Ideas', then Kate who is plain but extremely bright, next are the twins James and John, who get into all kinds of mischief, followed by Jo, who loves films, little Peg and finally baby William.

The Family from One End Street has a lively family setting, is full of wonderfully funny adventures and sure characterisation - a truly classic book awarded the Carnegie Medal as the best children's book of 1937.

About the Author:

Eve Garnett was born in 1900 in Worcestershire, and studied art at Chelsea Polytechnic and the Royal Academy School of Art. Whilst a student, she sketched the people of the East End slums and was haunted by the poverty she had witnessed, resolving to do something to bring the plight of the working-class family to people's attention. The Family from One End Street was originally published by Frederick Muller in 1937, followed by The Further Adventures of the Family from One End Street in 1956, and Holiday at Dew Drop Inn in 1962. She died in 1991.
