Overview

Previously published as I Am Better Than Your Kids.

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Alphabet of Manliness, the creator of “The Best Page in the Universe,” and overall genius, comes an outrageous, laugh-out-loud critique of children’s artwork that finally cuts those little smug know-it-alls down to size.

What people are saying about Maddox and Crappy Children's Art:

“You’re a menace to healthy development in children.”

“You’re right up there with Hitler, who destroyed thousands of kids’ lives by taking out their parents in concentration camps.”

“Saying you are better than a child just makes you a coward.”

“No one said you had to look at the artwork from your co-worker’s kids. To make an entire book to bash it? Sad.”

“would u like it if u were, like, 4, nd u do a picture nd u work on it for ages, nd u feel really proud, nd ur parents put it in their office, then sum asshole goes and says it’s crap, nd says it’s an F grade. Think about it.”

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

The author of The Alphabet of Manliness is at it again. In his latest sarcastic rant, Maddox mocks parents who think that their bratty little offspring are just budding Picassos or Einsteins waiting to germinate. Not surprisingly, the sneering keeper of TheBestPageInTheUniverse.com will have none of it: He wants you to know that the finger-painted masterpieces you cherish are actually worthless and those third-grade book reports rightfully belong in history's dustbin. For contrarian spirits, I Am Better Than Your Kids. (P.S. This book is not just the product of one extremely bad day. According to a watcher of Maddox's website, he "endorses chauvinism, and expresses dislike towards children, senior citizens, women's rights activists, vegetarians, environmentalists, hippies, celebrities, personalities, George W. Bush, Mac user, Goths and jocks.")

    Obnoxiously Funny

    This is a funny and an irreverent book saying things we all think but won't say out loud. This is more of a "bathroom" reader to give you a chuckle or two while doing your "business".

    Maddox and everything he does is amazing. Every review less than 5 stars is wrong.

    Not a review of the book itself but of the Free sample, which is not a sample at all

    At least give me 9 pages in the middle of the book instead of just the first 9 pages with just title page and the table of contents. Morons.
