More classic fun and adventure with the Ruggles family from One End Street!
Three of the Ruggles children have measles - but it turns out to be a blessing in disguise as they are sent to Dew Drop Inn, a wonderful house in the country, while they recover. There are adventures galore - like the time Lily Rose is a bridesmaid, or when Mr Ruggles gets sent the wrong pig, and the day Baby Ruggles sees a cat at the kitchen window and it turns out to be an escaped tiger!
The Family from One End Street, Further Adventures of the Family from One End Street and Holiday at the Dew Drop Inn are all available in A Puffin Book series of favourite modern classics for children.
