When Monique isn’t writing, you can find her playing taxi driver to one or more of her 12 children, plotting her next novel, scrapbooking, or being the “Mamarazzi” at any number of child-oriented events.
Even though she realizes there will never be enough hours in any given day, Monique tries very hard to enjoy the journey that is her life. She shares it with a terrific husband, her dozen children, twelve grand-darlings, too many cats, and many real and imaginary friends. She is the author of several books in three series and hopes to write many more.
When hunger wakes little Ginnie from her dreams she sets out to make herself a midnight snack. Hilarity and trouble ensues as she wrecks the kitchen in her attempts to make homemade popcorn balls.
This is a delightful addition to the middle-grade series The Ginnie West Adventures, featuring Ginnie at at age 12.
5 out of 5 stars
This book was a fun and sweet read. It brought back memories of my own children trying to cook eggs by themselves and two dozen eggs ended up cracked open all over the kitchen floor. My past experience made this book very realistic and luckily humorous. But it does not encourage the behaviour, so you don't need to worry about your children trying to replicate the story. I no longer have small children to share this book with but I personally loved the story and the pictures were fun, bold and cute.
I would definitely recommend this book as a great story for children and adults alike (and I know how important it is to enjoy a book you are reading to your child).
