A Girl Named Zippy


A Girl Named Zippy by Haven Kimmel is hilarious and wonderfully written. A Girl Named Zippy was worth every moment spent reading it. It was refreshing to read about a happy childhood. I was particularly impressed with her parents who really supported her curiosities and fostered such creativity in a young child. Books will make me laugh, but no books have made me laugh out loud like this. I'm sure I looked like an insane person as I worked on the stair climber while reading this book...trying hard to stifle my laughs. Oh well. This is a book to put on your books-to-read-before-I-die list. It's light, funny, and all around good. 4 stars
