More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Baker, the outrageously talented Eisner- and Harvey Award- winning artist behind such diverse projects as King David, Plastic Man and cult classic Why I Hate Saturn, has turned his attentions to more personal matters with this full-color collection of cartoon vignettes about family life. The family in question, based on Baker's own, consists of three irrepressible children and the harried couple who are their parents. In this world of alternately angelic and screaming kids, no detail of domestic life is too petty for good-natured skewering. Feeding techniques, getting kids dressed, and secret tips for frustrating parents all make an appearance. No surprise that Daddy Baker, who comes complete with dreadlocks and credit card, is frequently depicted with a smile bordering on a grimace. The tumult and confusion of this world is implied rather than spelled out. The brief comics are virtually text-free, with exaggeratedly cartoonish yet expressive artwork doing double duty as both explication and illustration. The physical comedy of the family's silent movie exploits gives the cartoons a soothingly retro feel that echoes the antic humor found in Mad magazine. This combination of Baker's inventive visual gags and chuckling familiarity makes the project endlessly appealing. (Jan.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal

Two harried parents and their three adorably unmanageable preschoolers star in this color collection of gags and vignettes self-published by the artist. It recalls Bil Keane's Family Circus, except this family is less apple-pie-angelic and a whole lot funnier. Baby Jackie spits up in Daddy's mouth as he dandles her overhead. Daddy yells at little Lil to box up her mess of toys-then retreats to his equally junky studio. "Master Ike's Toddler Self-Defense" is a delicious parody of martial arts zen-speak, as describing a stubborn youngster. When Lil's lost baby tooth goes missing, Dad crafts a substitute to put under her pillow, only to be caught later in playground one-upmanship about whether the Tooth Fairy likes rich kids better. Baker draws in various styles, and his more cartoony approach here delivers a visceral and consistently comical appeal. Just the kind of book to slip into the hands of that new parent dealing with diapers and whining. For all ages.
