Flamboyant and eccentric, being noticed is what all the members of the Shrimpton family live for - all except, that is, for Maude. She prefers to blend into the background rather than stand out in a crowd. And this is very much to her advantage when they all come face to face with a rather hungry tiger . . .
Sophisticated and highly decorative, Trisha Krauss cleverly uses visual clues and innuendo to embellish the tale of the not-so-noticeable Maude and her extraordinary family.
