Hilary McKay's Fairy Tales was her first book with Macmillan Children's Books and is a critically acclaimed collection of clever retellings. Her 2018 title The Skylarks' War marks the centenary of the end of the First World War and was the winner of the Costa Children's Book Award 2018. It is a classic in the making. The Exiles at Home" shows the sisters uniting to achieve a particular goal, and even manages to work in a bit of pathos towards the end; rather touching. But in general the mood of the story was very humourous, and I did find myself chuckling out loud now and again as I read the story.
Author Hilary McKay. A tender, sweet, and hilarious novel about growing up with a loving family and a perfectly rambunctious dog, from an author who "has set the standard of brilliance" (Horn Book). When she was eight, Binny's life was perfect: She had her father's wonderful stories and Max, the best dog ever. But after her father's sudden death, money is tight, and Aunty Violet decides to give Max away-he is just too big for their cramped new life. Clarry and her older brother Peter live for their summers in Cornwall, staying with their grandparents and running free with their charismatic cousin, Rupert.

I recently finished the second book in Hilary McKay's Exiles trilogy, titled "The Exiles at Home. I had enjoyed the previous title in the series ("The Exiles") well enough, and this one was even better . Exiles at Home is instead a rich and complex and laugh-out-loud great book.
