The Owner's Manual to Terrible Parenting
Guy Delisle, author of Jerusalem: Chronicles from the Holy City and A User's Guide to Neglectful Parenting, shares nineteen all-new comic strips that pay tribute to all the ways parents can drive their kids crazy, and vice versa. Slipping grammar lessons into bedtime stories, being challenged by difficult toys, and pretending to forget you even have a son: it's all in a day's work for Delisle. In The Owner's Manual, Delisle doesn't hesitate to make a slightly bumbling, fictionalized version of himself the butt of the joke, though his children often contribute zingy repartee and laugh-out-loud insight in the stories on display here. The Owner's Manual is the perfect antidote to frustrating car rides filled with "Are we there yet?" and epic battles over homework.
