Stripperella Goes Shopping



'The mother had taken Stripperella to the store one morning. She had
taken extra care to dress her in a pair of overalls that didn't unsnap
at the crotch. All precautions have been taken. Well, perhaps not. As
the mother was checking her list and comparing the prices of bar soap,
she sees movement out of the corner of her eye. "Oh she's just playing
with the seat belt no problem" thinks the mother. She makes her soap
selection and places it in the cart not really paying attention to the
child's appearance. The mother arrived at the checkout and really
looked at Stripperella only to realize she had taken her arms out of the
overalls and has pushed them down to her butt. Thank goodness she was
strapped in the cart and she probably would have been buck naked in the
middle of the store! "Why won't she keep her clothes on," the mother
wonders "she shows no interest at all in using the potty. Perhaps she
simply wants to show what she's got." Perhaps the mother will need to
keep her in backwards sleepers at all times until she gets past this.'



I've loved reading my whole life, and that's a long time. I read many
types of books... mystery, murder, suspense, humor and even a vampire
book now and then. BUT - I've never read a book that had me laughing so
hard that I had tears in my eyes. And this was the case throughout the
whole book!



This mother/author has her hands full with a child who simply doesn't
like to wear clothes. She also has her hands full with a child who
loves to "check things out." I'm not sure I could be as strong and
patient as she has and I'm sure still is. And as for Stripperella, she
has a determination which will allow her to be just about anything she
wants to be when she grows up. You can't help but love her and laugh
through every page.



I see The Adventures of Curlylocks and Stripperella as a book
that should be read by every mom, young and old, and every mother to
be. This one of the funniest books I've ever read.
