Fowl Language: The Struggle Is Real by Brian Gordon
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Fowl Language is a comic, but one that is specifically geared towards adults. The title is not just in reference to the ducks. That being said, there is not a lot of actual foul language, which I appreciate.
The comics were unexpected. The last panel always threw me off guard. You think you know what is coming, but like kids, sometimes you are just along for the ride.
When reading this book, make sure you do not skip to the actual comics. The humor begins in the introduction. While I don't have kids and I can't draw, I feel like I have now been given a gift, a way to help cope with kids doing crazy stuff without going crazy myself.
I would recommend this book to people with kids and people who want to enjoy laughing at parenting struggles. If you are planning a fantasy where you have perfect children that never do anything you believe to be inappropriate, this book is not for you. After you have had kids for a few years and your dream is in the past, then read this book and find joy in knowing that raising kids is hard and hilarious at the same time. It's all in how you look at it.
I was given a copy of this book by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
