Publisher's Description

Alexander McCall Smith's wildly popular 44 Scotland Street series chronicles life in a corner of Edinburgh brimming with wit and humor.

Newlywed painter and sometime somnambulist Angus Lordie might be sleepwalking his way into trouble with Animal Welfare when he lets his dog Cyril drink a bit too much lager at the local bar. The longsuffering Bertie, on the cusp of his seventh birthday party, has taken to dreaming about his eighteenth, a time when he will be able to avoid the indignity of unwanted girl attendees and the looming threat of a gender-neutral doll from his domineering mother Irene. Matthew and Elspeth struggle to care for their triplets, contending with Danish au pairs and dubious dukes to boot, while the narcissistic Bruce faces his greatest challenge yet in the form of an over-eager waxologist. As ever, when Alexander McCall Smith visits 44 Scotland Street, fun is sure to follow.

Editorial Reviews

"Poignant. . . . Readers can start here and feel the warmth of McCall Smith’s wit, deft characterization, and overarching theme of kindness. However, if you read the series from the outset, you’ll be treated to an astonishing view of changes in characters’ lives, very much like a time-lapse video in book form."
    --Booklist (starred review)

"Sense and humor fuse absolutely." —The Scotsman

"McCall Smith is an engaging and a witty guide to the goings on (and comings off) at fictional 44 Scotland Street." —The Daily Express (London)
