    Hilarious, So True

    This book will have you laughing so hard because it identifies every child you have ever crossed paths with in a supermarket, mall, or social gathering. All parents should read this book, along with all people that cannot stand other people's kids. Way to go Adrienne Frost, to put all of our thoughts on to paper. (and it has hysterical illustrations)

    I Laughed Until I Cried

    In being a teenager and reading this book, I found it wildly entertaining. I personally identify with the 'So Good it Hurts' archetype she mentioned-in fact, I was that type. My mom and I were able to bond over this, especially since our family has had a recent influx of little terrors (yes, I now have 5 cousins under the age of 10). Both parents and offspring(hey, you're either one or the other or both) will find this bold, cynical take on children relatable and relentlessly fun and funny to read.

    Hey, parents, read this book!

    I am SO glad I ran across this book! I was beginning to think I was the only one who felt this way!! This book made me laugh and then shake my head at how true it all is. I wish parents would realize that not everyone thinks their kids are so great/cute/smart/sweet because most of the time they aren't! I have this book proudly displayed in my living room!!

    I've seen all the antics from the 'enemies' in my line of work! HOW TRUE!!!!

    I picked the book up just curious about the title, but the more I flipped through it I just knew I had to have it! I work as an educator FT and PT in a children's museum in the gift shop- so this book hit home- I've seen all the forms the 'enemy' takes on. Good to know there are others who like me who hate OPK's and finally Adrianne gives us all 'the liberty to hate OPK's'. I will undoubtly share this with my co-workers, and proudly wear a shirt that reads 'I H8 YR KID!'

    Absolutely Hilarious

    I was reading this book and I could not stop laughing. Everything mentioned in this book describes exactly how kids are in the funniest way possible. If you truly do hate other people's kids or find them extremely annoying you have to read this book.

    FUNNY!

    Adrianne has written a very funny book about a growing problem. If you have ever had a movie ruined by a screaming kid, this book is for you. Even if the kid was your own!

    Loved It

    I read this over the weekend. It was hilarious, and incredibly true. I deal with kids all the time and could relate to it all, even though it's all in fun. I'm so glad Adrianne Frost wrote this book. I am passing it around to all my coworkers.

    Hysterical....and scarily true!

    I read this book in a matter of a few hours and found myself laughing out loud. We all love the children in our lives (our own, our relatives, our best friend's kids) but we know even they do things to annoy us and those around us. This book pulls no punches. EVERY PARENT should read this book to remind them of how annoying children can actually be, and no matter how cute their kid is to them, they aren't to everyone else! I love children. I'm not an anti-child person, but that doesn't mean I want to be surrounded by them at a casino or have one in front of me in a line somewhere. Kids are kids and always will be, but parents are the one who need to remember what behaviors are acceptable.

    I howled with childlike delight while reading this book!!

    If more people with horrid children had a sense of humor, well, then this book wouldn't be so hi-larious. A quick read, yet so tasty you linger over every page, savoring each amusing tidbit. Brings to mind my Mom's warning when I was a kid: 'I hope you grow up someday and have kids JUST LIKE YOU!' Be warned, and get thee to a bookstore while there are still copies left!
