Stark Raving Dad: Poems for the Frazzled Parent in All of Us (Hardcover)
Let's be honest: Most gifts for Dad usually end up being a golf club or a tie. But what about the Dad in desperate need of a laugh? Give him reassurance he's not the only father trying to figure it all out.
Over the years Sanderson Dean has turned all his fatherly angst into poetry, accompanied by crudely drawn images by his children. But before your eyes glaze over at the word "poetry," you should know it's more hapless than highbrow. From surviving road trips to being puked on, and from plunging clogged toilets to finding Craisins in the couch cushions, Sanderson covers many of the rarely talked about adventures that make the journey of parenthood so very exciting.
About the Author
"Everything about Stark Raving Dad demands to be read -- the hilarious kid art, the all-too-recognizable moments of parenting, even the layout. I recommend that parents lock themselves in the bathroom with Sanderson's book, stealing moments of sanity."—Leanne Shirtliffe, author of Don't Lick the Minivan and Mommyfesto
"The poems in Stark Raving Dad are witty and hilarious. It's the perfect book for Dad to sneak into the bathroom to keep him entertained during his 45-minute-long poops. (Seriously, why do Dads take so long to poop?)"—Deva Dalporto, MyLifeSuckers
