Product Description


"Whether Mom is into graphic novels and comic books or not doesn't matter when it comes to Jeffrey Brown's work. His adorably simple line work and stories are infectious for anyone that enjoys quirky humor and poignant tales. From the bestselling author of" Darth Vader and Son" and "Vader's Little Princess", "Kids Are Weird And Other Observations from Parenthood" is another fantastic entry in the author's ongoing discovery of the oddly universal truths about family and parenting."-Parade magazine

Kids are definitely weird 20 Mar 2014
By Shayla Eddy - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I received this book as an arc. Jeffrey Brown based this book off of his so and all the other funny things children say. He was trying to reach an audience of people who have been around children under the age of I'd about say nine.
Even though I don't have children and don't plan to for awhile I understood the humor of this book and I loved the art style and how casual it was. This book is full of color. You will find yourself in random burst of laughter because you will find something you relate to. This is a book I'll go back to one day when I have kids and read again and see how much children don't really change. All in all I would recommend it to anyone who's has kids or has been around them.

If you have a child, niece or nephew... you'll appreciate this book! 27 Mar 2014
By Jenna Miller - Published on
Format: Hardcover
As an aunt to two little girls, I've heard my fair share of funny and weird things. This book is spot on. Kids are weird and they say weird things, this book captures it well in comic book form. The author, Jeffrey Brown, also wrote another of our favorites, "Darth Vader and Son."

Weird indeed 19 Mar 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
My kids are heading toward the teen years, but still not too far away to relate to the humor in Kids Are Weird. I still enjoyed the book quite a bit. A lot of these things are presented as jokes, but can be headaches/nightmares in the real lives of parents. Great warning system for expecting parents or those with newborns.

I really liked Brown's two recent books, Darth Vader and Son and Vader's Little Princess. I grew up with Star Wars and the scenes in these books were perfect. After reading Kids Are Weird, be sure to check out his other works.

Brown Wins Again 19 Mar 2014
By Jim - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I have long been a fan of Jeffrey Brown and after his recent Darth Vader and Son book it seems he's hitting more of a mainstream audience. This book is worthy of that attention, displaying his knack for picking out the idiosyncrasies of life, in this case those of his son Oscar, and presenting them in his appealing style and storytelling. If you enjoy Brown's autobiographical works and humor, if you have kids or if you just think they're weird, check it out.

Good, slightly twisted view of childhood 10 April 2014
By WILLIAM EVERS - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Reading this as a grandparent of a 5 year old and remembering my own years as a parent of pre-schoolers (some 35 years ago!) was a lot of fun. There are enough comments and reactions that fit my experiences as well as others that were just funny. Not sure why the Dad is portrayed as a stubbled-covered (word?) adult but maybe that is the way kids see male grownups. Good, quick read.
