Product description

Review

'stylishly written, acutely observed, light-headed and often very funny. At times, it's also incredibly touching and insightful, particularly when dealing with the complexities of family life ... quality writing for children.' * School Librarian * '... hugely entertaining story effortlessly recreates a tightly knit world, imbued with a strong sense of belonging - a slice of childhood so multi-layered, touching and real that there's something for every child reader to identify with and savour. Here's a book that truly proves the joys to be had from reading.' * Books for Keeps * 'Warm, witty and wise, with unfeasibly broad appeal and proven anti-depressive properties, i would give this book to 9-year olds, teenagers and their parents.' * Sunday Telegraph * Hilary McKay's strength lies in her understanding of young people and her ability to evoke them very simply. * The Guardian * McKay has a genius for domestic comedy. * The Sunday Times * '... touching and hiarious. Beautifully crafted descriptive language makes this offering a real gem.' * School Library Journal * '... as wild and endearing as ever ... Another charmer for Casson fans.' * Booklist * '... we are so fond of this fresh, funny, foolish, wise, real family.' * The Horn Book Magazine * 'it's wonderful to have more stories about the engaging and uncommon Casson family!' * Parents Express * 'just the sort of crazy family you ache to be a part of.' * The Good Book Guide * 'Hilary McKay's wittily observed portrayals of family life are full of warmth, vitality and irrepressible good humour.' * Kate Agnew, The Guardian * 'It does what we hope JK Rowling would do: it makes everything you wish for come true, including the unlikeliest of outcomes.' * Sunday Times * 'A crazily fantastic story with loads of mad and hilarious moments.' * Independent on Sunday * 'Witty, warm and humourous ... family reading par excellence.' * Carousel *

Living with the Cassons has been a privilege and a delight. The friends and family are beautiful, vivid creatures and the story is soul-restoring and very, very funny. These books are EXACTLY ART!

Hilary McKay's Casson Family series is absolutely wonderful. The books are definitely written for children, but they are so funny that adults can read them with equal enjoyment. The Cassons are a chaotic, artistic family and the stories are about the everyday drama of family life. The reader grows very fond of all the family members (scatty but loving mother, errant but charming father and four brilliantly drawn children, Caddy, Saffy, Indigo and Rose). It's not at all sentimental, but has real warmth and humour.

This book is about a young girl called Rose who lives with her mother (Eve) sister Caddy, cousin Saffy and brother Indigo. When her "boring" friend Molly wants to do something daring Rose and friend, Kiran promise to do it with her however they don't know what they're getting themselves into. Meanwhile Indigo friend David is having problems at home and seem to be constantly appearing round the Cassons house. Caddy was off somewhere exploring and none of the family knew why she wasn't in touch very often. Rose herself is missing her good friend Tom who lives in New York and doesn't suspect what surprise she's got in store for Christmas day. She also managed to find the perfect match for Caddy to be with. And some unexpected news from her changes the whole atmosphere of the Casson family household. I would recommend this book for all ages as it is a realistic yet exiting adventure about a far from normal family. I give it 4 stars for the being an excellent literary, well written book, the excitement, the diary formatting making it a clever read and a true page turner.

This is a wonderful book and definitely my favourite out of the entire series. It had me laughing out loud all the way through, especially since Rose is such an amazingly witty narrator. I'm really going to miss reading new adventures about the Casson family, but I know that I'll be able to read this book over and over and never tire of it!

I read this series with my daughter when she was younger and we loved them. I also worked in a bookshop and used to recommend them all the time - customers would soon be rushing back in for the next one. I had not realised that there was yet one more and I bought it for me as my daughter is now beyond the age of reading children's books, though I am sure she will be reading it when she gets her hands on it. As before, the humour in the book is delightful and can be appreciated on lots of different levels, whatever your age. The Casson Family are such vivid characters and although their lives might be considered quite eccentric, they are all so endearing and brave with it. This ties all the loose ends together in a most satisfying way and leaves you with a lovely glow. I dislike sickly sentimentality but this book is never like that, it is actually written with a lot of subtlety and a joyful spirit which carries you along with it - one of those books which makes you feel good.

Format: Paperback
Forever Rose is a story about the artistic casson family. This book is a sequel to the other casson family storys and I recomend you read Saffy's angel first. This is written in first person like Caddy ever after and unlike the first 3 of her books. This is a must to read to round off the seris and the age range of this book may be lower that her others.I recomend this for 9 to 14 year olds.
