Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

New Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast aims her cartooning wit toward the familiar subject of being a parent. She does so with the kind of open-eyed reality that makes this book of cartoons read like a how-to manual, or at the very least, a view of what new parents can expect. Chast's sense of humor is apparent in her popular cartoon, "Bad Mom Cards": a series of mug shots of moms gone wrong, like the mom who "ran out of orange juice and served kids orange soda instead." The book's nice design and handsome size make for a great gift.

Format: Hardcover
A collection of Roz Chast cartoons about parents and children, featuring, for instance, "bad mom" trading cards, and America's Ten Most Wanted babies. You may even learn a few things, such as games to play during a long road trip with children- suggest the "quiet as a mouse" game - the first one who makes a peep loses. Great gift for parents and/or Roz Chast fans.

Just reread Childproof for the dozenth time and it still makes me laugh out loud. Roz Chast is always surprising and always hilarious.

If you like Roz Chast, you will love this funny collection of her hilarious takes on parenting and childhood. It makes a great extra with a baby shower gift, too.

I've had this book for years and still cannot bring myself to pass it on to Goodwill. It's somehow perfect both from parents' and kids' perspectives. One of my favorite cartoons is the contents page from Understanding Your Parents: one listing is Why Do They Not Know Anything?
