Book Description

As he's shown in his previous hugely popular books, Jeffrey Brown has a real gift for finding humor in quirky yet universal truths. Now the bestselling author of Darth Vader and Son and Vader's Little Princess brings his witty comic observations to terrestrial parenting in this perceptive book celebrating the more surreal moments of raising a child. In charming colorful panels, Brown wryly illustrates his fiveyear- old son's take on the world around him, from watching TV ("Elton John looks pretty in that shirt") to playing with toys ("This truck can survive on very little water") to odd requests ("Don't feel happy at me"), capturing the sweetly weird times that mothers and fathers everywhere experience with their own curious, pure-minded kids.


Editorial Reviews

Review

"A perfect book for Mother's Day, Father's Day, expectant parents, or even kids themselves, Kids Are Weird is a fun journey through the mind of a five-year-old boy."
-GeekMom

"With titles like this, as well as his Star Warsbooks which focus on Darth Vader as a doting father raising his two young children Luke and Leia, Brown has proven adept at examining all the charming aspects of fatherhood, particularly with young children. It's a gift that has turned into significant success for the veteran cartoonist, as his latest work has all been very well received."
-Comics Alliance

4.0 out of 5 stars Kids are definitely weird March 19, 2014
Format:Hardcover
I received this book as an arc. Jeffrey Brown based this book off of his so and all the other funny things children say. He was trying to reach an audience of people who have been around children under the age of I'd about say nine.
Even though I don't have children and don't plan to for awhile I understood the humor of this book and I loved the art style and how casual it was. This book is full of color. You will find yourself in random burst of laughter because you will find something you relate to. This is a book I'll go back to one day when I have kids and read again and see how much children don't really change. All in all I would recommend it to anyone who's has kids or has been around them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Weird indeed March 19, 2014
Format:Hardcover
My kids are heading toward the teen years, but still not too far away to relate to the humor in Kids Are Weird. I still enjoyed the book quite a bit. A lot of these things are presented as jokes, but can be headaches/nightmares in the real lives of parents. Great warning system for expecting parents or those with newborns.

I really liked Brown's two recent books, Darth Vader and Son and Vader's Little Princess. I grew up with Star Wars and the scenes in these books were perfect. After reading Kids Are Weird, be sure to check out his other works.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brown Wins Again March 19, 2014
By Jim
Format:Hardcover
I have long been a fan of Jeffrey Brown and after his recent Darth Vader and Son book it seems he's hitting more of a mainstream audience. This book is worthy of that attention, displaying his knack for picking out the idiosyncrasies of life, in this case those of his son Oscar, and presenting them in his appealing style and storytelling. If you enjoy Brown's autobiographical works and humor, if you have kids or if you just think they're weird, check it out.

This book is incredibly funny. It's like Bill Cosby's Kids Say the Darndest things but really silly/"I can't believe he just said that" kind of thing lol....

More About the Author

After growing up in Michigan, a 25-year-old Jeffrey Brown moved to Chicago in 2000 to pursue an MFA at the School of the Art Institute. By the time he completed his studies, he had abandoned painting and started drawing comics seriously. His first self-published book, Clumsy, appeared seemingly out of nowhere to grab attention from both cartoonists and comics fans. Established as an overly sensitive chronicler of bittersweet adolescent romance and nonsense superhero parody, Brown's current direction remains split between more autobiography examining the minutiae of everyday life and whatever humorous fiction he feels in the mood for. His most popular works include Clumsy, Unlikely, AEIOU, and Every Girl is the End of the World For Me, comprising the so-called "Girlfriend Trilogy" and its epilogue. More recently his autobiographical work has included Little Things and Funny Misshapen Body. His parody The Incredible Change-Bots, the Ignatz Award winning I am going to be small and humorous cat book Cat Getting Out Of A Bag all stand out amongst his humor work, while his Sulk series continues to take on a variety of subjects with satire. Jeffrey's work has appeared in a host of anthologies from McSweeney's to The Best American Comics, as well as mainstream books like The Simpson's Treehouse of Horror and Marvel's Strange Tales. His original artwork has been exhibited in New York, Paris, and Chicago. Brown has been featured on NPR's This American Life and even created a short animated music video for the band Death Cab For Cutie. He lives in Chicago with his wife and son.
