This book is not what I thought. It was funny, but not the type if reading I'm used to. This was more like a pamphlet of instruction than a story.

The title is hilarious, but once you get past this, it's a second-rate [version] of a writing style perfected by Judith Martin in books like "Miss Manner's Guide to Raising Perfect Children." Mellor's comic references to children serving their hard-working parents cocktails are amusing at first, but soon grow tiresome. Mellor comically enshrines alcohol consumption as the ultimate adult pleasure. But she ignores the unfunny, dangerous and skyrocketing issue of binge drinking among teenagers, which this book could inadvertently reinforce. I realize Mellor's intent is not serious, but it underscores the wrong values. This book would never sell if it were called, "The Three-Marlboro Playdate" and emphasized the joys of parents smoking cigarettes together while their well-bred children provided ashtrays, dumped the butts, and then ran along to play among themselves.
