Ever wanted to know how to be awarded the Best Dad in the Whole World? Guy Delisle has all the answers for you in these light-hearted, entertaining tales of parental mishaps and practical jokes gone wrong.
Whether he’s helping remove a pesky, wobbly, but not quite loose tooth or trying to win at hide-and-seek, his antics will resonate with every parent who has ever wanted to give a sarcastic answer to a funny question from their kid. Even More Bad Parenting Advice marks Guy Delisle’s second foray into the world of offering bad advice to parents, and a second opportunity to express the minor frustrations and many joys of parenting. Delisle’s skilful hand at illustration and ironic way with words, which helped to popularize his travelogues about daily life in faraway places, are just as much the stars here as he or his children are. His sense of comic timing shines through in these simply told stories; with their lively flow, a change in facial expression or a few words can serve as the anecdote’s punch line. Even More Bad Parenting Advice celebrates the reality that parenting isn’t all first steps and gold-starred report cards; it’s stinky diapers and never-ending drives to the grocery store too.
