This for-all-ages who want to laugh book has been read over 5 times at a sitting in our house. It gets read at the kitchen table, while laying on the front room floor, while snuck in between the pages of math homework, and while tucked in front of mama's cookbook stand.
Marinka's WANTED: CAT has achieved the highest award in Family Book Reading possible: enthusiastic two thumbs up from teenagers.
*The 16 year old says, "Give it back, dork...I had it first."
*The 14 year old sings, "Goodtastic!"
*The 9 year old bats his lashes and asks, "More, mama...read to me again about Snowflake!"
*Mama raves, "Look at how Marinka made her stiletto heeled self look on page 20. Like she was born in Spanx. Reason enough to write a book right there."
Seriously: this book made the littlest to the biggest laugh out loud. For me, it was like a long delicious Motherhood in NYC post, just what we always wanted.
The standards Marinka holds for herself are in every sentence of this child to teen book: if it's not thigh slapping funny, she won't let it leave her computer screen.
My entire family loved WANTED: CAT. This book has the high quality humor and comic set ups we've come to expect from this woman.
If you're into clever, smart, intelligent humor for your kids and a book that your kids will love sharing with you, order this book here.
You know, in case you don't win my giveaway.
She cracked me up, and all my kids, too.
You nailed it, Marinka. You really did.
Let the family fun begin!
