"Ten Kids, No Pets" is a book that Ann Martin wrote in 1988, right around the time the Baby-Sitters Club was taking off. I got it from the library, thinking I might do a video review for it.
Well, I decided against doing a video review, but I think I'd still recommend the book. It reminds me of "Cheaper by the Dozen". It's about a family with lots of kids and a parent who has strict rules.
Each chapter is about a different kid, and a lot of the ideas were later recycled into Baby-Sitters Club books, I noticed. We have a girl who finds a hidden passageway, a boy who makes up stories because he wants to make friends, the older sister who feels dragged down by all her younger siblings, twins who speak their own made-up language, etc.
