A deadpan, riotous, highly illustrated cacophony of madcap Irish shenanigans for boys and girls of seven years and up. One moment in time. One larger-than-life family. Each chapter follows a different Finn during the same ten minutes, building to a candid camera Finnale with a hilarious twist. Mickey Finn gets catapulted (literally) into trouble after a mishap with a snowman. Ma Finn's exuberant hoovering wakes up her lie-abed middle son, Lazy Finn, with disastrous consequences. Baby Dervla humiliates Weasel Finn, the family ferret (whom, legend has it, is actually Grandpa Finn reincarnated) with some devilish fancy dress and Mister Finn skulks around busily ignoring his brood and the trail of disaster that follows his eldest son, Big Finn. Welcome to the not-so-everyday life of the seven deadly Finns!
