This book is hilarious. I wasn't entirely sure what to expect when I requested it, but I definitely laughed more than I ever anticipated. My girlfriend likes to take out of context quotes from me and place them on Facebook. This is kind of the same concept. It's a collection of odd quotes, paired with artwork, of some of the asinine things parents have to say to their children.
It's a funny collection, and the artwork is really fun and very bright and colorful. I actually read it aloud from my computer to my girlfriend, and it had us both laughing. It's about kids, but I'd recommend it for the parents who have to say this kind of nonsense as part of their daily routine.
I'm not going to spoil the entire book for you, because that would be a mean thing to do. I am, however, going to share my three favorite quotes from this book to give you a taste of what waits for you inside the book:
"Stop eating cake out of the garbage, you already brushed your teeth."
"I am not talking to you until you are wearing underwear."
"Ham is not a Band-Aid. Let's not put ham on our knees."
This is a very fast read that's full of hilarious one-sentence quotes and cute illustrations. As mentioned before, I think parents will enjoy it the most.
I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
