Open Road Integrated Media announces the ebook publication of two classic memoirs by authors Frank Gilbreth and Ernestine Gilbreth Carey. The children of efficiency experts Frank Gilbreth Sr. and Lillian Moller Gilbreth, siblings Frank and Ernestine grew up in a family of twelve children shortly after the turn of the twentieth century. Their tender and hilarious memoirs, Cheaper by the Dozen and Belles on Their Toes, have been beloved reader favorites for generations.
Cheaper by the Dozen, an instant classic upon its original publication in 1948, chronicles the Gilbreths' unorthodox upbringing. With resourceful Mother and Dad at the helm of a rambunctious family of twelve, the siblings recount the myriad misadventures and barely-contained chaos that characterized their upbringing. The heartwarming and comic stories of the jumbo-sized Gilbreth clan inspired three film adaptations: Cheaper by the Dozen (1950), Cheaper by the Dozen (2003), and Cheaper by the Dozen 2 (2005).
The sequel to Cheaper by the Dozen, Belles on Their Toes, follows up on the Gilbreths after Dad's death as the ever-enterprising Mother takes over her late husband's business while managing her oversized brood. Amid tragedy and a newfound need to pinch pennies, the clan's irrepressible spirit endures.
Cheaper by the Dozen will be released as part of Open Road's Iconic Ebooks imprint, a designation reserved for titles that have universal name recognition whether as memoir, popular fiction, literary fiction, or nonfiction. Now, finally, these beloved stories are available in a digital format, their timeless humor and warmth sure to endure among a new generation of readers.
