*I was provided an advance copy of this publication in exchange for providing an honest review*

As a mom and a grandma, I know from experience that parenting takes a lot of serious work, but also requires a good sense of humor. Without being able to laugh at mishaps, every parent would be a basket case by the time their children reach adulthood. 

Fowl Language: Welcome to Parenting is a collection of cartoons that really strike at the heart of the matter. As a parent, we all experience delightful things such as bodily fluids at inopportune moments, bad music recitals, school plays, embarrassing questions, temper tantrums....and this lovely collection of hilariously cute cartoons covers the wide spectrum of parental emotions and situations. Good and bad. 

Kudos to Brian Gordon for a job well done. This book is witty and very clever! I loved it! Parents and grandparents of any age will enjoy this collection of cartoons. It would even be a good gift for first time parents-to-be, so they know what they are getting into. ;) Then it won't be a surprise the first time their clothing is covered in vomit or poo, or their toddler is kicking and screaming on the floor at
the grocery store. It isn't often that cartoons make me laugh out loud, but I was cackling almost the entire time I was reading. I even called my husband into the room a few times to read with me. Soon we were sharing memories of parental moments that live in infamy in our household....walls smeared with baby poo, a toddler running naked through a family barbecue, our son sharing his ice cream cone with the dog....

Just a joyful read! The book is 130 pages with full color art, published by Andrews McMeel Publishing. 

Rating: 9/10
Not for children...some profanity and adult topics
Absolutely hilarious! 
Ages 16+
