Mary Mary Quite: On Raising Children (And Other Mind-Altering Substances)

MMQ and old Hunk raised five kids, assorted grandkids, two cats, three dogs, rodents galore, all kinds of reptiles, a boatload of fish, brain coral, and a Mexican tarantula named Mad Max. It was crazy. But their drug of choice has always been laughter.

“Mary Huckstep has written one of the cleverest and most insightful books on parenting and embellishes this tome with terrific illustrations by David Condry. It’s full of uproarious, at times embarrassing, but always entertaining insights into parenting and child raising. Told in her inimitable style, Mary Huckstep has a hit!” GRADY HARP, Amazon Hall of Fame Top 100 Reviewer 

“If you like Erma Bombeck, then Mary Huckstep will be right up your alley. Besides Mary’s deft humor, what also keeps you turning the pages are the larger-than-life illustrations by David Condry. This book looks at the crazy life of parenting through the lens of humor – and laughing about it makes everything a little easier.” TERRY L. ROLLINS, Amazon Reviewer and Author of Married to the Military 

”This inspirational book is beyond cute and packed full of tales which accurately, yet comically, describe real-life situations. As a mom, wife and grandmother, I found myself relating to every chapter. MMQ is full of humor — and wisdom that comes only from life experience. Can’t wait to read what Mary writes next!” CHERYL E. RODRIGUEZ, Reviewer for Reader’s Favorite 

“The writing of MARY MARY QUITE is not contrary to your having a good time. (I just had to say that.) Mary’s wit reminded me of Erma Bombeck – because these stories are funny only when you survive to write about them.” CHARLES ASHBACHER, Amazon Hall of Fame Reviewer

“Hilarious! I’ve read the entire book three times, and each time I found something new to appreciate. There are great messages in these stories, but they’re subtle. I didn’t realize I was picking them up until my third read.” MMQ’s literary doppelganger and fellow anglophile, Ruth. (Who is most-assuredly biased.)

“I looked at the illustrations with my two boys and we were in awe. They are flawless, emotional pieces that resonated with all three of us. And by flawless, I mean they are raw, in-depth snapshots of humanity. The writing is – in turn – a belly laugh and a sigh of relief, all mixed in with wonderful insight. Someone else gets it!” David’s pastor and honorary auntie, Karla. (And yes, bias is inevitable.)
