fun for all ages

I grew up with a bipolar mum, and how refreshing to hear mental illness depicted in a funny loveable way in this story.
The narrator / actress gives an Oscar worthy performance! in fact, I had to double check that it wasn't narrated by several people she does the voices so well.
loved every minute of this book.
and it's not just for kids - I'm in my twenties!

A story for all age groups.

I first heard this story as a child and I really enjoyed it. I then listened to it again years later as an adult and loved it. It does a wonderful job exploring mental illness and the effects it has on children. Its a story for all age groups.
