On Our Shelves Now
A laugh-out-loud collection of illustrated scenarios that perfectly captures the tribulations of being an adult human in the twenty-first century.
Whether pondering the overwhelming plethora of nondairy milk options that drag out your coffee shop experience or grocery trip by a solid half-hour, trying to figure out why you always have a fork that never matches all of your other forks, or wondering why a salad costs $30 (the lettuce costs extra!), this exploration of modern life and its toll on our collective sanity invites readers to revel in the hilarity of these shared experiences. Poking fun at the things we all do to make life more bearable, like crystal healing, picking the perfect email sign-off, eating fancy cheeses, or Botox, this is the perfect sassy gift for birthdays, holidays, graduations, or any other day that needs some comic relief.
LAUGH-OUT-LOUD HILARIOUS: Lawall and Wonder's apt commentary is hilariously specific, but also undeniably relatable, making this a unique humor book for people from all walks of life. Whether commiserating over office jargon, app-based dating, or failed online orders, there is something funny for everyone.
CAPTIVATING AND NOSTALGIC: The boldly illustrated characters play into a funky Y2K style, reminiscent of popular cartoons like Doug, sure to delight anybody who grew up during this era or enjoys its nostalgic vibe!
