I bought all the 4 Quigley's books on a recommendation I read by the author of the "Penderwicks" a couple of years ago.

My kids (aged 8, 8 and 12) have read all four books multiple times. They revel in the (mis)adventures of the Quigley Dad. Some of the passages leave them rolling in laughter. There's something unique about the Quigley stories that makes the kids go back and re-read them several times.

Highly recommended for ages 7 thru 12.

Hope Simon writes a few more Quigleys books.
My daughter laughs out loud when she reads the outrageous escapades of the Quigley Family, no matter how many times she has read the books before. This one was just as fun as the others.
This book is so funny! I have read it three times (I am 35...)! The illustrations make the text even more funny!

The children think up schemes to help their parents pay "tacks", have much fun spending the weekend in a hotel, try to keep Dad from selling the house and "help" Mum enjoy a "relaxing" walk in the park.
A cute portrait of a family of four from all perspectives. The humor is such that both kids and adults will enjoy reading it alone or together.
