"Instructive, funny, and very readable." -- School Library Journal
Always entertaining, occasionally hilarious, occasionally touching....Sound Americana. -- Saturday Review of Literature
Gay and lighthearted...One of the most amusing books. -- The Chicago Sun-Times
No growing pains have ever been more hilarious than those suffered loudly by the riotous Gilbreth clan. First, there are a dozen red-haired, freckle-faced kids to contend with. Then there's Dad, a famous efficiency expert who believes a family can be run just like a factory. And there's Mother, his partner in everything except discipline. How they all survive such escapades as forgetting Frank, Jr., in a roadside restaurant or going on a first date with Dad in the backseat or having their tonsils removed en masse will keep you in stitches. You can be sure they're not only cheaper, they're funnier by the dozen. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.See all Product Description
