'The mother had taken Stripperella to the store one morning. She had taken extra care to dress her in a pair of overalls that didn't unsnap at the crotch. All precautions have been taken. Well, perhaps not. As the mother was checking her list and comparing the prices of bar soap, she sees movement out of the corner of her eye. "Oh she's just playing with the seat belt no problem" thinks the mother. She makes her soap selection and places it in the cart not really paying attention to the child's appearance. The mother arrived at the checkout and really looked at Stripperella only to realize she had taken her arms out of the overalls and has pushed them down to her butt. Thank goodness she was strapped in the cart and she probably would have been buck naked in the middle of the store! "Why won't she keep her clothes on," the mother wonders "she shows no interest at all in using the potty. Perhaps she simply wants to show what she's got." Perhaps the mother will need to keep her in backwards sleepers at all times until she gets past this.'
I've loved reading my whole life, and that's a long time. I read many types of books... mystery, murder, suspense, humor and even a vampire book now and then. BUT - I've never read a book that had me laughing so hard that I had tears in my eyes. And this was the case throughout the whole book!
This mother/author has her hands full with a child who simply doesn't like to wear clothes. She also has her hands full with a child who loves to "check things out." I'm not sure I could be as strong and patient as she has and I'm sure still is. And as for Stripperella, she has a determination which will allow her to be just about anything she wants to be when she grows up. You can't help but love her and laugh through every page.
I see The Adventures of Curlylocks and Stripperella as a book that should be read by every mom, young and old, and every mother to be. This one of the funniest books I've ever read.
I highly recommend this book for old and new moms alike...would make a super gift!
