Synopsis

The Large Family has big dreams, high hopes and enormous piles of washing!
Mrs Large dashes about like a whirlwind looking after her four children: Lester the coolest nine years old in town (or so he thinks!), the practical and creative Laura, bright spark Luke and mischievous baby Lucy while Mr Large manages to stay remarkably calm, an oasis of tranquillity in the mayhem around him.

The stories reflect the everyday lives of this all too human elephant family, the school lives of the children, normal activities like going swimming or camping, the sometimes fraught relationships with their upwardy mobile neighbours : the Smarts. And at the heart of it all, a family that really cares for each other, the sort of family that any child would like to grow up in.
