Tanya's mom is having quadruplets! At 9 years old, Tanya was satisfied with the status quo and says so when she writes her innermost thoughts to her diary. Everything from dirty diapers, spit-up, and problems with classmates becomes recorded history she shares with its pages. Theater-trained reader Eve Karpf, sounding like a child, does well adding dramatic pauses for emphasis. You can almost hear Tanya roll her eyes heavenward when Mom and Dad are too tired for her after the babies arrive. This rendition of life with quadruplets is believably hilarious and frustrating. Tanya eventually grows to love the babies and sees the joy they add to her family. Anyone who loves infants will enjoy this delightful and timeless tale.
