If you're young, old, or in the middle, get ready to laugh out loud with Erma Bombeck, America's funniest lady. This outrageously witty book proves that humor is the best way to keep on keel-even with a teenager in the house. You've finally figured out what makes your child tick, when one day you wake up to discover a teenager under your roof. Suddenly life is filled with a whole new set of worries: Why isn't she dating? Why is she dating? Why can't he can't pass his driving test. Why is he out so late with the car? Wise in the ways of teenagers, Erma Bombeck celebrates both the joys and difficulties of watching children grow into adults. Barbara Rosenblat provides the perfect voice for energetic young people and their baffled parents.

"The source for this program, now almost 30 years old, is basically a running monologue by the late humorist about raising teenagers. It's dated by references to refrigerators that need defrosting and 10-cent phone calls, but it's still interesting because kids trying to become adults continue to present the same problems. Parents looking for more than entertainment won't find much advice or guidance, but none is promised, so they may as well just enjoy the listen. The accomplished reader handles the dialogues with an amazing range of voices but can't overcome writing that often leaves one waiting for a punch line that isn't there. T.W.
