Joe is a member of the Normale' family, a large Italian-American family
that believes in tradition, respect and honor. Joe loves his family but
does not like his name. You see, everyone in Joe's family is named Joe
in one form or another: Grandpa Joe, Grandma Josephina, cousins, Joely,
Joanne, and Jodie, to name a few. It was, after all, a family custom
and one unfortunately that young Joe did not like. Why did everyone
have to be named Joe? He didn't feel he had any identity of his own,
but was merely clumped in with the group. Poor Joe, what is he to do?
A gem of a read that I am pleased to recommend. One that will help
every child in their development and bring entertainment and enjoyment
at the same time. Very well done.
