Editorial Reviews

Individual Reviewer - Tom Barnes
Venita Louise has written a comedy using all the elements of farce without the pratfalls.
Jingle writer, and head of the household, Frank Beal has distractions flying around his piano workplace like boomerangs. Son Matt has a slew of knock knock jokes; daughter Melinda is the moppet version of Inspector Cleseau with a hardhat while wife Joan angles for a new car in order to keep up with the Jones's. And that's just inside the house.

The next door neighbor¿s gardener Tito is sure Frank Beal controls the outdoor snail population and accuses Frank of sending his snails next door, ¿to Meester Robert¿s yard.¿ You¿ve got to empathize with Frank though and wonder how he is able to turn off the madness and produce jingles. But you soon find out he¿s had prior experience with madness when his brother Gene shows up in a skirt. Well, it¿s not really a skirt, the clannish Uncle Gene shows up wearing a Kilt. Venita¿s world also includes a special mix of goofballs, voodoo spells, hex¿s and a wandering peacock. But even as chaos swirls around him good old Frank manages to produce a winning shoe polish jingle to the tune of Route 66. Order a copy of Mixed Nuts and join the fun.
