before your teenagers drive you crazy....

Hubby and I picked this book up on a whim a few weeks ago and it's the best book I've ever read!  Well, ok, the plot is a bit predictable, but it's really got good info in it!

It's by Nigel Latta and it's funny as can be! Like this 'note': 
"The details of the individuals and families I talk about in this book have been changed so that they are not identifiable.  Not even the great Sherlock Holmes himself would be able to trace these stories back to their source.
That said, Danger Mouse probably could find the real families, but then he's just a cartoon character so no one's going to take anything he says very seriously.  My advice would be that if Danger Mouse shows up at your house and starts asking personal questions, you should  probably just slip him some rat poison.
No one ever went to jail for killing a cartoon
character."

Two thumbs up for anyone who has, or will soon have, teenagers!

BEFORE they drive me crazy? Are you kidding? Already too late for me. The drove me nuts years ago.

But I hope this book will save you from the journey to the nut house that they put ME on! :)

Hilarious intro to a book. And how the heck did you get those little cheerleaders up there???!

thanks for the kind words!

Braja, the cheerleaders are from a collection of smilies I used on a forum years ago. I just drag and drop.
