Home Gerald Durrell The New Noah. The little creatures measure about six inches long and are completely clad in thick soft golden-brown fur, that makes them look more like tiny toy teddy bears. The next morning, together with some natives, we went down to the river and began to work out a plan for getting the huge reptile out of the water and up the steep bank to the top, where he could be picked up by a jeep.

Gerald Durrell was born in India in 1925. Over his lifetime he wrote thirty-seven books, went on dozens of animal-collecting trips and presented numerous tv shows. His family settled on Corfu when he was a boy and he spent his time studying its wildlife. He relates these experiences in the trilogy beginning with My Family and Other Animals, and continuing with Birds, Beasts and Relatives and The Garden of the Gods. He founded the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust in 1959 as a centre for the conservation of endangered species – of which his wife Lee is still Honorary Director.

I bought him when I was up in the creeklands, and he started being a nuisance almost immediately. ht yellow feet and a thick yellow beak. The feathers on the top of their heads stand up and curl forwards in a short crest, and they have large, dark eyes with a mad expression in them. Cuthbert arrived, being carried by his owner, who was a fat and shy little Chinaman. When I purchased the bird, the Chinaman stooped and placed him on the ground near my feet.

Durrell spent twenty years as an animal collector, from 1947 to 1968, and a further twenty on conservation expeditions, as well as running Jersey Zoo for much of that time. From the start he wrote about these expeditions as a way to make more money, and his wry, dry humour and wonderful observation of both people and animals made the books enormously popular in the UK.

"The New Noah" is the first one he wrote just for children. It's a tremendous success as a children's book -- my ten year old daughter is halfway through it and loves it -- but adults will enjoy it too. I read it aged about ten, and have read it again at least half a dozen times in the thirty odd years since then.

The stories are drawn from two or three of Durrell's early expeditions, to British Cameroon (now Cameroon) in Africa, and to British Guiana (now Guyana) in South America. The expeditions took place in the late forties and early fifties -- "The New Noah" was first published in 1955.

The chapters are thematic, rather than chronological; there's a chapter about the various monkeys he had in his camp, and so on. My favourite is Chapter 4, "In which I am bitten by Bandits". The bandits are kusimanses, a kind of west African mongoose; small, energetic, endearing and troublesome. I have great memories of many more stories -- the terrific adventure of capturing a giant anteater; the juggling porcupine; the cute galagos; and the foolish pangolin.

The line-drawings by Ralph Thompson are a big part of the pleasure of a Gerald Durrell book, and this one is no exception. I can't tell from the description of this edition if it has them -- I certainly hope so. If you decide to buy one of the second-hand ones that Amazon has for sale, I suggest you ask the seller if those illustrations are in that edition.

Very highly recommended; kids aged ten or above should thoroughly enjoy it, and animal-crazy kids under that age shouldn't have too much trouble with the language. And adults will love it too.
