From the winner of the Costa Children's Book Award 2018. Meet Saffy, Indigo, Rose and Caddy Casson. This colourful and hilarious series will make you wish you were part of the family!

It's a long hot, never-ending summer, with no letters for Rose.

Tom went back to America, and Rose hasn't heard from him since. No phone calls, no messages, nothing at all. New friend David, however hard he may be trying, is no replacement.

And home doesn't offer relief either: Dad's left Mum for a young model, Caddy is questioning her imminent wedding and Saffy is trying to find her real father.

Rose is determined to find Tom in New York. But what else will she find on the way?

'So good it almost hurts . . . charming, affectionate and perfectly written' Independent

The first book in the series, Saffy's Angel, won the Whitbread Children's Book Award, and Permanent Rose was shortlisted for the same award, celebrating McKay's talent for conveying the anarchic bedlam of family life.

Praise for Casson Family: Permanent Rose: Book 3

  • Permanent Rose is the antidote to everything that's bad in children's books and, indeed, everything that's bad in life . . . there are no hard edges but no sentimental slop either, in this beguiling story - The Sunday Telegraph

  • McKay has a genius for domestic comedy. Her books are also imbued with an ethos of tolerance and acceptance. This unconventional family . . . has become, with our increasing knowledge of its members, a kind of model of how to make the most of life - The Sunday Times

  • From the opening scene . . . McKay's third story about the vibrant Casson family is entrancing - Guardian

  • Rose Casson is the kind of girl we should all want to be . . . A great sequel to Saffy's Angel and Indigo's Star - Family Interest Magazine

  • McKay's strength lies in her ability to craft an unputdownable story from everyday happenings, and to handle serious issues and emotions with real lightness. She evokes the whole Casson family so vividly that the reader can imagine their lives going on uniterupted even after the book has been closed. Highly recommended - Bookfest

  • Realistic dialogue and irresistible characters enliven the tale - School Library Journal
