As he's shown in his previous hugely popular books, Jeffrey Brown has a real gift for finding humor in quirky yet universal truths. Now the bestselling author of Darth Vader and Son and Vader's Little Princess brings his witty comic observations to terrestrial parenting in this perceptive book celebrating the more surreal moments of raising a child. In charming colorful panels, Brown wryly illustrates his fiveyear- old son's take on the world around him, from watching TV (Elton John looks pretty in that shirt") to playing with toys ("This truck can survive on very little water") to odd requests ("Don't feel happy at me"), capturing the sweetly weird times that mothers and fathers everywhere experience with their own curious, pure-minded kids."
Jeffrey Brown is the author and illustrator of Darth Vader and Son, Vader's Little Princess, Cat Getting Out of a Bag, and Cats are Weird . He lives in Chicago with his wife and two sons.

Editorial Reviews

A perfect book for Mother's Day, Father's Day, expectant parents, or even kids themselves, Kids Are Weird is a fun journey through the mind of a five-year-old boy."-GeekMom"With titles like this, as well as his Star Warsbooks which focus on Darth Vader as a doting father raising his two young children Luke and Leia, Brown has proven adept at examining all the charming aspects of fatherhood, particularly with young children. It's a gift that has turned into significant success for the veteran cartoonist, as his latest work has all been very well received."-Comics Alliance"Whether Mom is into graphic novels and comic books or not doesn't matter when it comes to Jeffrey Brown's work. His adorably simple line work and stories are infectious for anyone that enjoys quirky humor and poignant tales. From the bestselling author of Darth Vader and Son and Vader's Little Princess, Kids Are Weird And Other Observations from Parenthood is another fantastic entry in the author's ongoing discovery of the oddly universal truths about family and parenting."-Parade magazine"
