This review is from: The Unexpected Mrs Pollifax (Mass Market Paperback)
Dorothy Gilman is a very successful author of many children's novels, including the Mrs. Pollifax series. The accomplished author was born in New Brunswick, New Jersey on June 25, 1923, to James Bruce, who was a minister, asd Essa Gilman. After a while Dorothy fell in love with a man named Edgar A. Butters Jr. and married him on September 15, 1945; she was 22. She had two children by him, Christopher and Jonathon, but unfortunately her marriage ended in a divorce in 1965. In her career as an author she earned many awards for her various writings. Dorothy Gilman is a democrat and her religion is Congregational. Today, in her spare time she contributes to many magazines. Some of the are Redbook, Good Housekeeping, and Lady's Home Journal. Today Dorothy is in her mid-seventies.
In the book that we read, 'The Unexpected Mrs. Pollifax,' the main character, Mrs. Emily Pollifaxfaces many obstacles. If you were to take one look at her you would think she would be just an average granmother. Well, your wrong; this middle aged widow, mother of two, and grandmother of of three is very active volunteering at the hospital rolling bandages and working in the gift shop. Always wanting to be a spy, Mrs. Pollifax went to the CIA hoping to take a job in espionage. Luck was with her that day and she got the job. Some examples of how Mrs. Pollifax is risky is her time spent planning an escape route inside her cell, running from a burning car about to explode, dodging bullets as they tried to escape, and hiding in ditches neat the sea that occasionally filled with water that could of easily drowned her. An example of when she was lovable was when she became friends with Senor DeGamez, the person in charge of the Parrot Bookstore. We think Mrs. Pollifax is a very charming, sweet, proper, and adventurous lady. We recommend 'The Unexpected Mrs. Pollifax' to anyone.
