The second in the hilarious and heart-warming young series about the chaotic life of the Butterfield family from award-winning Chris Higgins.
It's the summer holidays and the Butterfield family is going away to Cornwall. As usual, Mattie has plenty to worry about. What if she loses the luggage she's been put in charge of? What if someone falls over a cliff? And worst of all... what if they've forgotten someone?
Both sweet and surprising... fresh and funny. Easy to imagine this book being a turning point for independent readers. - Books For Keeps

Well written and beautifully illustrated. Witty and lively... has achieved that difficult balance of being funny and immediate yet with serious and touching lessons to be learned. - School Librarian
