Today I talked about ten of my favorite “big family” books, but so many more didn’t make it onto the list. Here are the ones I included.
(I know they ought to have authors’ names, but if that’s the worst of the problems with this list, (a) it’s a frickin miracle and (b) I almost bit through my own fist in a rage, trying to get the stupid, stupid thing to stupid do what I stupid wanted it to do, and between Amazon’s clonkiness and WordPress’s persnickety proprietary nonsense, and me being in the “all irate all the time” trimester, this is how it turned out. Think of it like an adventure!)
All-Of-A-Kind Family (the series)
Mr & Mrs Pig’s Bulk Buy and the rest of the Mrs. Pig books
Nanny McPhee (Widescreen Edition) (the movie, which is not a book, but a movie)
The Weasley family in the Harry Potter Paperback Box Set (Books 1-7)
and the ones I wish I had had room for:
Five Children and It and other E. Nesbit books
The Penderwicks: A Summer Tale of Four Sisters, Two Rabbits, and a Very Interesting Boy and the rest of the series
and the ones I am not familiar with, but which others recommended (thanks for your help! If I weren’t such a lazy swine, I’d link back to you all, not that you need it):
The Happy Hollisters series
Come join us at the Register and add your favorites to the list!
Oh, and if perchance you are inclined to buy any of these books, my Christmas present savings fund, which we keep raiding for frivolous flights of fancy like dryer parts and, um, extra bone marrow for my poor sick grandmother, would love it if you would click through from my blog here, because I get a small percentage of each sale. I forget if I’m supposed to mention that or not. If you’re from the Amazon Associates program, please practice the following remark, “Aw, that dizzy broad don’t know what she’s talking about. Nothing to see here, legal department — let’s move along.”
Yay, books! Yay, small percentage! Yay, big families!
