My daughter is a wiggles fan. Book was okay, but he spends an inordinate amount of time discussing his chiropractor. I guess that's how he got his wiggle back but it was boring.
As a mother of seven children, the oldest 26 and the youngest 1 year, I have seen many, many, many, many episodes of The Wiggles. I am a voracious reader and saw this book and thought, "Why not?". I'm so glad I did. It's a book about a man facing adversity, rising above, and coming out on top. It's inspirational and full of some wonderful health tips. Oh yeah, and a few things about the Wiggles. I was surprisingly entertained and highly recommend this book.
