    By the author of Auntie Mame. It's a very non-festive Christmas day for Kerry, 10 and his sister Missy, 6 when Mum and Dad's marriage explodes in front of both grandmothers.  The kids are farmed out while Mum and Dad go their separate ways.  Gran in Massachusetts has a very sylvan country life in which the kids create uproar all round, and Gran - Ga-ga as she prefers to be called - in the city has a small apartment overflowing with Maxl the dachshund and her many beaux. Meanwhile, Mum is being pursued by her lawyer and Dad is blindly paying court to a  man-mad, social climbing fashion magazine editor.  But all's well that ends well when the kids take a hand in these matters.

    An uproarious story, told by Kerry (aged 10) over a rather non-festive Christmas Day in which Mummy and Daddy's marriage explodes in front of both lots of grandparents.  So Kerry and his sister Missy (aged 6) are farmed out while Mum and Dad go their separate ways.  Gran, in Massachusetts, has a lovely spacious and peaceful rural setting for the kids to undermine.  Their city Grandmother - Ga-Ga, as she prefers to be called - has an apartment overflowing with Maxl the dachsund and her many beaux.   Meanwhile, Mum is being courted by her lawyer and Dad is pursuing (he thinks) a sophisticated and understanding fashion magazine editor (actually a desperate-for-a-man social climber.)  But everything works out with Kerry and Missy's help.

    Peace and goodwill are very thin on the ground when Kerry and Missy's parents' marriage explode on Christmas Day.  The kids are farmed out to their Grans' homes:  one a peaceful country home which ceases to be peaceful when the kids arrive, and one a city apartment overflowing with  a dachshund and Ga-ga's many beaux!  Meanwhile, Mum is courted by her lawyer, who is the epitome of virtue and Dad blindly courts a man-mad, social climbing fashion magazine editor.  But all ends well when the kids take  hand in organising their parents' lives to their satisfaction!

    Tony simply must be a very important person - he wears the right clothes, knows the right people and is seen in all the right places.  It says so in the society columns and they're always right.  Although there are some strange stories about Tony.  Tall tales...something about all the money he brought home from t he war...a peculiar wedding... a rather messy divorce case...And wasn't there a story about blackmail and The Mob?  Here is Tony - a rascal, rogue and reprobate from the cult of celebrity before there was a cult of celebrity.  Dennis, the creator of Auntie Mame and other memorable characters, has a sly dig at society pretensions while telling a good story as well.
