Publisher Description

Hilarious and colorful episodes in the lives of families... many depicted from a kid's-eye-view... are the theme for this compilation. Being part of a family is often trying, and stranger than any fiction, but never dull and always worth it in the end. Join these very different families as they face the shrinking of parents, the preemptive guilt of First Confession, the secret worlds of children, and more!
