Top 10 funniest fictional families

Jeremy Strong is the author of over 80 children's books, including the series The Hundred-Mile-An-Hour Dog and My Brother's Favourite Bottom series. His latest book is My Brother's Famous Bottom Gets Crowned.

One of his ten top funniest fictional families, as told to the Guardian:
Matilda by Roald Dahl

Hmmm. It required some hard thinking to decide which of Dahl's funny ha-ha and funny peculiar families I should choose, but the Wormwoods are right up there with the best of them, or should that be the worst? Even Matilda, heroine as she is, has a dark side. Pure Dahl, pure gold.
Read about another entry on the list.

Matilda appears among James Dawson's top ten books to get you through high school and Christopher Timothy's six best books.
