This book is about a family of bandits. The mother and father begin to fight a lot and decide to separate. The kids start go back and forth to their parents’ houses. One day everything changes. The dad meets a princess and her and her children move in. None of the children get along at first, but they eventually learn to love each other. The mom eventually gets a dragon boyfriend with dragon children. The entire family eventually gets along and even has parties together. Ute Krause did a great job creating this book! He writes about problems that real families go through, which is different than your typical perfect family illusion most children’s books portray. I also really enjoyed the humor that this book contained! ( )

Not what I was expecting when I picked it up. Very weird, in a sort of cute way. A story about blended families (blended in more than one way).

Here's an imaginative and relatively quick read about a group of brothers and their eccentric parents.

On a personal note, reading ¿Cuándo se irán estos? was a humorous reminder for me of not seeing the forest for the trees. My Spanish language level is beginner enough that it takes a significant amount of my concentration just to decipher single words and sentences. At one point though I took a metaphorical step back, considered the story as a whole, and realized this book is a child's perspective what it's like to be shuttled between two households because your parents got a divorce. A modern family indeed. ( )
