    I am just glad I found a copy! This book seems very hard to find, even though all three involved - Patrick Dennis the writer, Cris Alexander the photographer/illustrator & Peggy Cass the 'star' are all fairly well-known today. The pictures are fabulous & I don't think it's fair to compare it to 'Little Me' although there are parallels, of course. If you want to read something like you've never read before...this is one read for you. I am just glad I found a copy!

    Great fun to read, love the puns and especially love all the photos! Not quite as great as Little Me but the Gladys Goldfoil character sure was terrific. What I like best about Patrick Dennis is how he says something without saying it, using an innocent (and idiotic) narrator to let the reader connect the dots. Fabulous!

    Not quite as uproarious as the Mame books, but still plenty amusing. Photos were a particular delight

    The memory of reading this glorious romp lingers 40 years after I found it in the library while at college. The archival (ahem!) photos add to the hilarity.

    The usual Patrick Dennis wit but with some sensational photos. I will say that the story does become a bit tiresome after a while because Martha Dinwiddie Butterfield is just too too. But this book does feel appropriate for our current political moment.
