Offbeat British historical comedy

I saw this story on BBC and wanted to learn more about the family of Brits . The book is narrated by the youngest son . Very entertaining!

All stories from the second book but one

Disappointed! Only one new story and all others were from the second book.so it was just an abridged book. And I loathe abridged books. They weren’t even the best stories to be had. The only positive is the author read it and he has a nice voice
