The trials of Tallulah and Xanthe,
By A Customer
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mother Tongues: Travels through Tribal Europe (Paperback)
The idea of the book tempted me to buy it, though I wish I'd been warned off by the reviewer who commented that it would have been improved by less information about the author's kids. It is less a book about the minority languages of Europe and more a family diary of an overlong holiday. I was torn between feeling sorry for Tallulah (being dragged away from her friends to live in a converted lorry) and wishing the child would behave well enough so that there could be more information on the topic the book is supposed to be about.
