Just Great ~ Enjoyable for all Ages !
I wish this book was also offered in the adult section, as it is fun for all ages! Kudos to the narrator who absolutely brings this to life: you can smell the marinara sauce cooking! The storyline is great; the authors bring you all the color and character of the neighborhood and those who live there --again, you feel like you know them and might bump into them on the street.
Whether you are more like Nicky and his father, or like Uncle Frankie or the goombas, you can relate to this warm, quickly-paced narrative that is also thought-provoking and nostalgic....and no, you don't have to be Italian to enjoy ~ I'm a grown woman from Missouri via Hawaii. Loved it!
