Library sales are the sales that keep on giving. This is yet another purchase of the last library sale. The next one is coming up soon. What goodies will I find then?! I bought The Darling Buds of May without knowing a thing about it. I just liked the cover. It reminds me of Monty Python. They're all kinda cute! Here's a summary:
Introducing the Larkins, a family with a place in popular mythology. Here they come, crashing their way through the English countryside in the wake of Pa, the quick-eyed, golden-hearted junk-dealer, and Ma, with a mouthful of crisps and a laugh like a jelly.The Darling Buds of May is the first book in the Pop Larkin Chronicles. There was a TV series in the UK based on the books in the 1990s with Catherine Zeta-Jones. Did anyone see it? Was it any good?
It sounds like it will be a fun story!
(This Old Thing is an occasional blog feature where I highlight an older book I've bought.)
