9780091882969: A Girl Named Zippy: Growing Up Small in Mooreland, Indiana

Nicknamed Zippy for the way she would bolt around the house, this small girl was possessed with big eyes and even bigger ears. In this witty and lovingly told memoir, Kimmel takes readers back to a time when small-town America was caught in the amber of the innocent post-war period - people helped their neighbours, went to church on Sunday and kept barnyard animals in their barnyards. Zippy, according to her kindergarten report is 'disruptive in class. Colours outside the lines. Talks out of turn.' Her parents read it out loud to her. 'Good for you, sweetheart,' her mother says. Her dad gives her a pat on the back.
