It's too bad, that this book hasn't translated yet, I 'd love to recommend it far more people who won't get the trouble of reading it in english.
This was an extremely funny book. Anne Fine must have been involved in a similar family gathering herself. She draws the characters brilliantly - and they literally walk of the page whilst making you scream with laughter. One of the funniest episodes was the quiz on the family visit, as nearly every character asked a question which caused great upset to another member of the family. In fact, it was the quiz that uncovered Ralph's unfortunate loss of his aunt's pearl earrings. The combination of the different members of the family's antics is hilarious - we have Titania's constant annoying dancing and singing, Aunt Ida's visions, the twins destructive behaviour, Great-Granny's love of administering pain to all and sundry, Uncle Tristram's practical jokes and Mum's exasperated attempts to control them all.
The More the Merrier is totally different for the books that I would normally read, but I enjoyed the humour in it immensely and would definitely look for this type of book again.
I would recommend this book for 9-14 because it would suit a lot of people.
I would definitely recommend reading any other anne fine books because they are all brilliant.
