Young Marjane is sent off to prepare the samovar, while her mother, her aunt, her grandmother and their friends do the washing-up. Only when the women have retired to the sitting room to enjoy their teas are they ready for the most important business of the day: gossip.

If this one is meant to be humorous and satirical, I get only two percent of it; I find the rest rather insulting, pointless and I am hugely disappointed with this one. If this one is meant to be humorous and satirical, I get only two percent of it; I find the rest rather insulting, pointless and gender shaming as well as body shaming of both genders.
I seriously doubt what the author was thinking when she wrote and illustrated this book. The dialogues are really mean, cringy and tasteless. I know what the author is trying to convey but everything came out really bad and gross!
