I think this book should be called Funnier By the Dozen instead of Cheaper! If you watched the “movie version” of this book, do not worry! The only thing they really have in common is the 12 children. This wonderful book was first published in 1948, but tells stories of the family from the 1910′s to 1924. And by the way, it’s all TRUE, written by two of the children. Despite the shear number of family members, you can tell that they were remarkable close and genuinely seemed to like each other. And the book is endlessly entertaining since it’s just all of the funny family stories compiled into a book. I love when the kids all learn morse code after their father paints the alphabet on the bathroom walls of their summer house and then goes around leaving messages in morse code that may or may not lead to a prize.
