Mr. and Mrs. Willoughby want, above all, to be childless; in fact, they "frequently forgot that they had children and became quite irritable when they were reminded of it." The Willoughby children, meanwhile, want to be orphans-"worthy and deserving orphans," like their favorite literary characters. Now, both parents and children are crafting "ruthless" and "thoroughly despicable" schemes to get rid of each other. . . . Black-and-white line drawings. A 2009 E. B. White Honor Book.
