It is a humorous memoir, and it deals with a very large family of 11 children sharing one bathroom and a kindred spirit. It is about friendships, childhood and memories that endure a lifetime. More
Growing up Snook is the humorous memoir of surviving a large family of 11 children. The book deals with the trials and tribulations of poverty, with enduring friendships, and it is written with a wicked sense of humor that was honed by the need to stand out in a crowded living room. The book begins with the author's very first memory and ends with the realization that his childhood has come to a completion. Along the way, readers are treated to Halloween candy swaps, dangerous trips on a Big Wheel, and tales of slippery stairs. In an era of finger-pointing, the author offers up a refreshing perspective which lays the blame of his misfortune right at his own feet. It is an honest look at one boy's life and how he made his way through childhood.

Well I just bought this book...Laughed so hard at the free pages, had to know about the rest of this family's antics..You are an awesome storyteller I must say...I hope the rest of the book is a good as the teaser....BTW we are the two old white haired folks that sit in the back row at church...
This is a great read! I love how funny stories were woven together with poignant memories to create a really candid look at life through Dave's eyes. I am proud to say that I already had access to the stories without written copy since I am privileged to be married to the author. Great job, honey!!
David is a great storyteller. His account of the Snook family shenanigans made me literally laugh out loud and wish that I had the privilege of having so many brothers and sisters. Funny and endearing. I am considering instituting a game of "war" in the Snook fashion at my next family reunion.
