As seen on The Today Show and CNN's Showbiz Tonight, I Hate Other Peoples' Kids is now available!
Sure, children are the greatest gift of all -- but that doesn't mean you want to be seated next to one on an airplane.
From the dawn of time, other peoples' kids have found ways to spoil things for the rest of us. Movie theaters, parks, restaurants -- every venue that should be a place of refuge and relaxation has instead become a freewheeling playground complete with shrieks, wails, and ill-timed excretions.
Now, I Hate Other Peoples' Kids delivers a complete handbool for navigating a world filled with tiny terrors -- and their parents. It boldy explores how childrens' less-endearing traits have disrupted life throughout history ("And they say Jesus loved the little children, all the children of the world, but he never had to dine with one. He chose the lepers.") and classifies important subspecies of tyke, from "Little Monsters" (Dennis the Menace, Bamm-Bamm Rubble) to the "So Good It Hurts" variety (Dakota Fanning, Ricky Schroeder in "The Champ").
Dotted with illuminating sidebars such as "Parents Think It's Cute, But It Isn't" and featuring ingenious tips on turning the tables without seeming childish yourself, I Hate Other Peoples' Kids is clever, unforgiving, and sidesplittingly funny.
I Hate Other Peoples' Kids is available on Amazon.com or at your local bookstore.
