Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Anyone with children, or even likes being around children, will find something to laugh about in Baby Blues." --Blade Citizen Oceanside, CA

Who can resist adorably wide-eyed Zoe MacPherson? Certainly not her parents, Wanda and Darryl, a mid-thirties career couple who've become mommy and daddy. But, like the millions of parents who flock to this engaging comic strip, the MacPhersons also find parenthood more rewarding--and frustrating--than they'd expected. Each day of this incisive and entertaining comic series, millions empathize with them as they face the joys and demands of parenting.

I thought Labor Ended When the Baby Was Born is aheartwarming collection from Baby Blues creators Rick Kirkman and Jerry Scott. Developed in 1990 after Kirkman became a neophyte dad, Baby Blues appeals to anyone who's witnessed the eye-opening experiences only a baby can bring. Moms, for example, relate to Wanda, a former midlevel career woman who now stays home full-time to care for the mostly adorable Zoe. Dads connect with rattled-but-determined Darryl, as he still staggers off to an office each day despite mind-boggling changes life has wrought at home. Together, Mom and Dad juggle and struggle to decipher their new relationship, wondering where romance fits in, whether they're "parentnoid," and how they're affecting their daughter.

Artist Rick Kirkman and writer Jerry Scott know about parenting and provide a hilarious, yet true-to-life, view of this mixed blessing.

Synopsis:

The fourth heartwarmimg collection from the creators of the popular Baby Blues strip, which appears in more than 200 newspapers daily, reintroduces the McPhersons, a mid-thirties career couple who are finding parenthood more rewarding--and frustrating--than they'd expected.
