In this witty and lovingly told memoir, Kimmel takes readers back to a time when small-town America was caught in the amber of the innocent post-war period - people helped their neighbours, went to church on Sunday and kept barnyard animals in their barnyards. Zippy, according to her kindergarten report is 'disruptive in class. Colours outside the lines. Talks out of turn.' Her parents read it out loud to her. 'Good for you, sweetheart,' her mother says. Her dad gives her a pat on the back.Hide synopsis

This book is so well written and funny. Honestly, I don't know how Kimmel recalls the details of her childhood as she tells the stories - I'm guessing that she remembers the general incidents and fills in all the fine details and conversations with her imagination. It matters not - each story is precious, I laughed all through and turned down corners to remember parts to read out loud to my husband and daughters (who loved it also). These could be the stories of my childhood or yours - Kimmel just does the story telling in a way you or I never could. I think my teens will love reading it too.
This book does deliver what it's cover reviews claim. You do get wrapped up in the recollection of the antics of Zippy. She can be very clever and touching then turn around to be such an imp that she's in need of a good spanking. Your heart will go out to this young girl as she wades through her childhood to make some sense of this life.
