These are just a few of the reviews Margoshes' latest book has garnered, in Canada where he lives and is a well-known and well-respected author, and I certainly agree with every one and am sure you will too. It's a book that makes you think of your own parents, brings a few tears and a few laughs too. And for some reason, when you read it for the second time, you like it even more.
