A masterful parody Nov 3, 2007
It's humorous seeing folks who didn't catch that in fact the book is a parody of the "pro-life" movement. It's brilliant, catching the insanity of the pro-war, pro-death penalty, pro-ritual-cannibalism aspects of the Christian right in the form a children's book. Brilliant!
Wonderful Pro-Life Cartoon Feb 15, 2007
This is a wonderful cartoon book for children. It is gleaned from the illustrator's weekly cartoon strips which appear in the National Catholic Register. I gave it to my then-five-year-old son for Christmas and he was overjoyed.
I would caution parents that the pro-life message is strong in this book, and I recommend previewing it for appropriateness for your own children.
Couldn't Put it Down Dec 5, 2005
This cartoonist has a way with words and pictures. I bought this cartoon book for my kids because they love Family Circle and other good cartoons. When it came in the mail, I opened it to check through it to see if I could give it to my younger ones. I started reading and read straight through, I couldn't put it down! There's humor, sophistication, a uncanny ability to speak a pro-life message through the eyes of an unborn baby. I recommend it. Have one around the house so friends and family can read it. Or better yet, what a great gift idea that's subtle, yet mind-opening. It's a teaching tool, and entertaining at the same time.
