Has she really been a lion tamer? A cook on a pirate ship? And a stunt pilot? One thing the Suttons know for sure - with Ida around, anything is possible.

I thought this was one of the best books I have ever read! The author pointed out a lot of comparisons in this book, such as 'Ida was as tall as a telephone pole.' I really liked how Ida exaggerated with tall tales. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes stories that you cannot put down.
