In this delightful memoir by the authors of Cheaper by the Dozen, the twelve Gilbreth children cope with the loss of their father as they grow up together. With twelve kids, life at the Gilbreth house has always been a big project. But after their father passes away, there are more challenges than ever. And yet, with the irrepressible blend of humor and good cheer characteristic of one of the most beloved families in America, the Gilbreths happily rise to every occasion and find a way to keep it all together. With the clan struggling to make ends meet, everyone has to pitch in. As their resourceful mother works to keep the family business running without Dad, the kids tackle the adventures of raising themselves and running a household. Their attempts to pinch pennies frequently result in chaos. From tragedy and the trials of the first year as a single-parent household to the daily crises of a family with a double-digit headcount, the episodes in Belles on Their Toes are poignant, inspiring, and hilarious. “From start to finish, it is a reading joy,” raved the Chicago Sunday Tribune. “There is a sincere and heartwarming atmosphere in this second volume,” wrote Library Journal, “that makes it almost better reading, if possible, than the first.” This ebook features an illustrated biography including rare photos from the authors’ estates.

Life is very different now in the rambling Gilbreth house.When the youngest was two and the oldest eighteen, Dad died and Mother bravely took over his business. Now, to keep the family together, everyone has to pitch in and pinch pennies. The resourceful clan rises to every crisis with a marvelous sense of fun -- whether it's battling chicken pox, giving the boot to an unwelcome boyfriend, or even meeting the President. And the few distasteful things they can't overcome -- like castor oil -- they swallow with good humor and good grace. Belles on Their Toes is a warm, wonderful, and entertaining sequel to Cheaper by the Dozen.

The film was one of the highest grossing films of 1962. It won one Oscar and was nominated for three additional Academy Awards.

„Eines der vergnüglichsten Bücher der letzten Jahre.“ DER SPIEGEL, 1947 Das Kultbuch von Clarence Day in der kongenialen Übersetzung von Hans Fallada Mit heiterem Spott und voller Liebe beschreibt Clarence Day das temperamentvolle Leben in seinem Elternhaus im New York der Jahrhundertwende. Seine Texte machten ihn über Nacht bekannt. Die Bühnenfassung wurde einer der größten Broadway-Erfolge aller Zeiten. Im Mittelpunkt steht der polternde „Herr Vater“, Clarence Day senior, der gegen die Plagen des Familienlebens aufbegehrt: gegen andere Meinungen, Verwandtenbesuch, Köchinnen oder diese neuartige Erfindung namens Telefon. Eine kluge, bissige, warmherzige und zeitlose Schilderung der ganz alltäglichen Klippen des Zusammenlebens, übersetzt von dem damals bereits weltbekannten Hans Fallada, der den wunderbar beiläufigen Humor Days mühelos ins Deutsche überträgt.

"When Green talks about the controversy in casting Hunter as Jesus in King of Kings and why he didn't join the cast of Star Trek after filming the initial pilot, he is in peak form as a writer and an astute critical commentator. This well written volume is a must for Hunter's fans"--Classic Images "The coverage is detailed and the writing style informal and entertaining"--ARBA. Jeffrey Hunter is best remembered today for his roles as half-breed Martin Pawley in John Ford's classic western The Searchers (1956), as Jesus Christ in Nicholas Ray's King of Kings (1961) and as Christopher Pike, the first captain of the U.S.S. Enterprise, in the original Star Trek pilot. This work chronicles Hunter's entire film and television career from his beginnings as a 20th Century-Fox contract player to his untimely death in 1969 at the age of 42. Fellow 20th Century-Fox contract player Robert Wagner provides the Foreword and contributes his memories of working with Hunter. Production Manager Herbert F. Solow discusses Hunter's role in the original Star Trek pilot and Lloyd J. Schwartz shares his memories of being present at Hunter's audition for the role of Mike Brady in The Brady Bunch (1969). Hunter's "lost" film Strange Portrait (1966) is also discussed in detail and his radio and theatre career highlighted.
