From the New York Times bestselling author of The Alphabet of Manliness comes I Am Better Than Your Kids, an ingenious critique of children's artwork squeezed from the teats of Maddox's talented fingers. Finally a book that cuts those smug little monsters down to size. If you think children are precious snowflakes who are perfect in every way, think again. If you cherish every piece of art, every book report, every letter to Santa your child gives you, then this book is not for you. If your refrigerator is adorned with mementos from your kid's childhood, then you are a sucker.
Maddox, who has been writing hilarious essays for his popular site, TheBestPageInTheUniverse.com since 1996 (which receives over 1 million unique visitors per month), is here to tell you how your kids are inferior, and why it matters. Based on his most popular feature on his website, I Am Better Than Your Kids, and featuring 99 percent exclusive new content, Maddox tells it like it is by saying what we're all thinking when we see a child's art.
For the first time in published form, Maddox has included his own childhood drawings for criticism. Don't think he can draw better than your kids? Judge for yourself. From sub-par valentines, homemade gifts, to crafts and even pictures of children, no aspect of juvenile production is spared! Why reward weakness and mediocrity with gold stars? You are in Maddox's world now, and no child is safe from the scrutiny and critical gaze of the world's foremost authority on children's crappy artwork.
