ONE OF THE GUARDIAN'S BEST GRAPHIC NOVELS OF 2014!

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 lighthearted, 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 wanted to give a sarcastic answer to a funny question from their kid.
Even More Bad Parenting Advice marks 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. His skillful 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 afew words can serve as the 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.

Great for parents to read; funny, relatable and a super quick read!

A funny relatable graphic novel by Guy Delisle. Short vignettes featuring a childish father with his two endearing children. Simple clear illustrations, quick pace, and great comedic timing.

Not funny, not entertaining, not worth signing out. Maybe it was donated to the library?

I do believe the proper title for this little series should just be Honest Parenting. We have more little cartoons here with the artist being a Dad and abusing his position as Dad to humorous effect. If you liked this first collection, you'll like this too. I do think this one if my favourite of the two though.

I don't need a six-year-old telling me how to play hide and seek. I've been hiding for 47 years!
