Saffy's Angel

Hilary McKay.

One of four in a series about the artsy Casson family, all four children named after colours. They are popular, but frankly, I didn't love this. it had moments, but mostly, I found it a bit too precious, a bit too focused on how very artsy they were (you know, scatty mother, messy house, and so on). On top of that, while I think it's nice that the siblings are so supportive and get each other so much, I really didn't like the dad, who clearly didn't like his family very much and wished they were something totally different and escaped every chance he got. Nice, hey? Can't say I'm going to read the other three books.
