Will Margaret ever realize that there's more to life than being mean?
Margaret is a mean, cranky human toddler from a family of nine. She is such a pain that her beleaguered parents chuck her out, and she's on her own, grousing and grumping until two loving but dissimilar woodchucks, Phoebe and Fred, they take Margaret in as their own. But despite their love, Margaret continues to wreak havoc with her loud, descructive ways, ruining the burrow and shrieking nonstop. Soon the woodchucks are as beleaguered as Margaret's human parents were, but because love is inexplicable, they love their wretched Margaret none-the-less, and are determined to make it work. So they enlist help and with the guidance of a snake, bats, and a skunk, their feral little human might just be tamed.
A brilliant, funny, irreverent story about nontraditional families, adoption, love, and a little peace and quiet.
