ONE MORE LAUGH PRODUCING TALE FROM SOPHIE KINSELLA

    A fan of Sophie Kinsella's tart wit and abundant imagination (and a wannabe shopaholic) I've enjoYed all of the Shopaholic series, and eagerly await the next.  MINI SHOPAHOLIC  is full throttle Kinsella humor as we meet (perhaps Becky's match) in 2-year-old daughter Minnie.

    Of course, as we  all know times have changed considerably since Becky was last let loose in Harrods – we've  all tightened our  belts (even Becky had to snug her new snakeskin one.)  She's trying to  adjust, promising hubby  Luke that she'll  not buy one more thing until she has worn all of her clothes at least three times.  Such sacrifice!

    It's not been a good year for  Luke either.  They're now living with Becky's Mum and Dad (loving parents to  be sure as Becky has commandeered the  dining room for her makeup and her father's study for her dress-ups).  Becky is working from time to time as a personal shopper, but still has a bank book in the red and credit cards groaning under their loads.

    Now, you'd think most of the giggles in MINI  SHOPAHOLIC would center around Minnie whose favorite word is “Mine!'  Her run through a shopping mall is enough to make other patrons gasp, and many  of the chuckles are indeed found with her.  However, when Becky decides that Luke needs some cheering up and decides to throw a surprise birthday party  for him hysteria  reigns.

    Actress Rosalyn  Landor brings Becky as well as the other characters to laugh producing  life.  She's a gifted performer who never takes her narrative over the top although temptations to do so in a Kinsella story  abound.

    Enjoy!
