Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Any parent can understand why Darryl and Wanda MacPherson can't decide whether to hug Zoe and Hammie to pieces or turn them into pieces in some less loving way. . . . Kirkman and Scott are virtuosi of the world of child-rearing." --Infodad.com

Under the sticky seats, next to the molten milkshakes, unreturned library books, and petrified french fries is where you'll probably find the hidden microphone. Those Baby Blues cartoonists undoubtedly planted it in your minivan, because how else could they come up with the ideas for their comic strip that mirror exactly what's going on in your life?

Fans and critics have been alternately checking under their seats and raving about the realism of the parenting experience depicted in Baby Blues for years. That realism is no accident (nor the result of illegal wiretaps). Parents themselves, cocreators Rick Kirkman and Jerry Scott have an infinite wellspring of material at their disposal. As writer Jerry Scott explains, "As long as kids keep having runny noses and wiping them on the drapes, we're in business."

This colorful treasury, Driving Under the Influence of Children, not only contains over 240 pages of award-winning Baby Blues comic strips, but also contains Baby Blues stickers, including a bumper sticker that should be affixed to nearly every minivan on the road.

About the Author

Artist Rick Kirkman worked as an illustrator, designer, and freelance gag cartoonist before developing Baby Blues with cocreator Jerry Scott. He lives in Arizona. Writer Jerry Scott is also the cocreator of the comic strip Zits. He lives in California with his wife and two daughters.
