Oh baby! My Space
, this Baby Blues
collection, kicks and screams with good stuff. The MacPhersons show us that raising one kid is a breeze, raising two kids is tricky yet manageable, and raising three kids is deserving of canonization. But still, sleep-deprived Darryl and Wanda do it with a style and wit all their own.
Baby Blues is funny because it accurately depicts the trials, tribulations, and triumphs of parenting. And like any curious kid, My Space cracks you up and leaves you begging for more!
Forget child-rearing books; all a parent needs to get through the highs and lows of raising kids is a 3 a.m. read of Baby Blues.
* From diapers to long division, it's easy to see why so many people relate to Darryl, Wanda, Zoe, Hammie, and Wren.
* In 2001, Scott earned the prestigious Reuben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year. The National Cartoonists Society also gave Baby Blues its Best Comic Strip of the Year award in 1995.
