The story is told, and illustrated, by Raymond Briggs. We learn how his parents met in 1928, were married, struggled to have a child, endured WWII and see Raymond through school.
All too quickly Ethel & Ernest go through the stages of family life. Their son, Raymond, does such a wonderful job of taking us along for the ride. This book will make you smile and then feel sad when it comes to an end. At a mere 103 pages, you can read it while you drink a pot of tea, I highly recommend it. Thanks Book Psmith!
