MMQ is fun to read, fun to share and fun to have.  Huckstep grabs life by the scruff of its neck and gets a good shake for her trouble!  And you get a good laugh.  This is the real funny stuff that happens in families.  A good read and a beautiful book.

Given To Me For An Honest Review Mary Mary Quite On Raising Children (And Other Mind-Altering Substances) by Mary Huckstep is such a must read, you'll find yourself  re-reading it over and over again.   This book will grab you from page one and hang on to you until the end.  There are stories about raising  children according to Mary Mary Quite and her husband Hunk.  After reading each story you will realize that although there are some truths  in the stories they are subtle.  The book is hilarious and fun.  It is really a unique book to read.  I loved it.  One of my favorites was On  Getting Organized.  I gave this book 5 stars but it clearly deserves many more.  I highly recommend this book to everyone especially if you  need some laughter around you.  I look forward to more from Mary Huckstep.
