Ok, at first I have to say I was troubled by some of the language in
this book – particularly the word ' hate'… but I have to say that
now I love it. I really do. We are expecting our second child, and our
son is almost four and having a bit of a struggle with the idea of
sharing his parents with anyone. he has come up with all sorts of
plans involving rockets, fire trucks and police cars – oh yeah, and
tape. None of them violent ideas I might add, more just the relocation
of the baby once it is born in nice safe vehicles. He's being quite
crafty actually, and I should commend his creativity.
Anyway, this book is hilarious.
My little sister was born when I was four, and I remember how I felt
so distinctly, still to this day – 30 years later, that Lilly antics
just crack me up – and our son too. Warning pregnant mouse-ladies that
they will live to regret that bump under their dresses… the magic
tricks, the stories… if you have a good sense of humour, and can
remember what it was like when a new sibling came along – this is a
very funny book to read to help prepare for the inevitable.
