While I’m not a parent I still really enjoyed this book. The comics were funny and entirely relatable. Plus, the drawings are of ducks. What’s not to love about ducks?!
I’ve observed so many of these moments with friends’ kids, along with the sticky kids who always end up next to you in the checkout line and the ones playing the games with annoying music at the highest possible volume on their parent’s phone at the doctor’s surgery. Whenever I come across a Fowl Language moment I have such admiration for the way parents manage the seemingly impossible and usually think, ‘You poor things’ and feel myself wanting to give the frazzled parents a hug. Yet at the same time I’m probably also thinking, ‘This is reason number 638 why I don’t have kids’.
There’s always something cathartic about finding a “Me, too!” moment when you feel like you’re the only one going through something and parents are definitely going to find plenty of those in this book. This is a book that can used to reminisce – “Look what we survived!”, to encourage – “I think I can, I think I can” or possibly even as an effective form of birth control.
Thank you so much to NetGalley and Andrews McMeel Publishing for the opportunity to read this book.
Once Upon a Blurb
The Internet sensation, Fowl Language Comics, is back with its second book, Fowl Language: The Struggle Is Real, the perfect parenting humor book for anyone who liked Toddlers Are A**holes!
He’s back, and he’s totally got parenting figured out this time. KIDDING.
It’s another collection of Fowl Language comics, ripped from the headlines of this author’s actual friggin’ life.
You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll swear. It’s almost exactly like a day of parenting, except without the annoying little people.
