It’s truly funny but yet such touching story!

The Willoughbys return, this book must read! The touching and so incomparable story of 4 children who were left and got adoptive by Melanoff! Tim is becoming a father and also facing the choices between work or quality time with his son Richy. The challenges we facing everyday, placing value to decision and important value of life. Few things are new in the story, there is a next door family the Poore’s is quite a character in the story as well facing sadly but oddly events that could turn sadness into joy. My kids enjoyed the book and highly recommended to read for the fans of Willoughbys.
