With her characteristic sparkle and wit, Viorst relates her efforts to (graciously) share space, to become (if only a little bit) more flexible, to (sort of) keep her opinions to herself, and even to eventually figure out how to
unlock the safety locks of the baby¹s (expletives deleted) bouncy seat. She describes how she and her husband, while sometimes longing for the former peace and tranquillity of unravished rooms and quiet dinners for two unaccompanied by cries of ³Oh, yuck!² survived and relished the extended visit of the Alexander Five. She also opens our eyes to the joys of multigenerational family living and to the unexpected opportunities to grow that life presents‹even under the most unlikely circumstances.
Several generations of readers surely will relate to this funny and loving book, enhanced throughout by Laura Gibson¹s delightful two-color drawings.
