Because I'm the Child Here and I Said So : A Joke Book for Parents (Because You Need a Laugh!)
Between the fat stacks of parenting books designed to engender paranoia and hyper-competitiveness, and the culture that demands everyone must 'have it all,, today's parents don't stand a chance. BECAUSE I'M THE CHILD HERE AND I SAID SO by cartoonist Pat Byrnes is a gleeful send-up of modern parenting: the obsession, the sport, the pseudo science, and all the maddening challenges parenting presents. Each full-color cartoon features a smart punch line that will make you smile (or wince in recognition). Fortunately, Because I'm the Child Here and I Said So is the antidote to all your parenting woes. Whether you keep it for your own sanity or give it to a desperate parent, the cartoons of Pat Byrnes will delight and amuse.

About Pat Byrnes
You don't have to be a rocket scientist to create cartoons, but Pat Byrnes erred on the side of caution, getting his aerospace degree at Notre Dame in 1981. His science skills have languished, however, as he has spent most of the last 25 years following his love of writing, acting, and cartooning---and most recently as a stay-at-home dad. Since 1998 he's been a regular contributor to the New Yorker.
