"Captures the anger and frustration that accompanies a child's inability to control his life." (School Library Journal)
Finally finding time to enjoy my first love... "reading" ... in a whole new way that fits into my busy schedule.
Listened to this book on several short car rides with my children (ages 6, 9, 15)....they enjoyed the story which was lighthearted and humorous. I found myself laughing out loud more than once. I would recommend for children as well as family listening time.
