Fillets of Plaice

4.1 based on 887 ratings & 35 reviews on


Fillets of Plaice combines Gerald Durrell's love for animals in all their forms with the humorous anecdotes about his family for which he is so well known from My Family and Other Animals and its sequels. Larry, Margot, Leslie and Mother are all present and correct, but so too are spiders, lizards and water fleas.
