by Robb Lightfoot

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Twenty-three tales of midlife madness. Why minivans suck. How eating expired food may—or may not kill you. Brief tutorials on how to fuss, pull better Halloween pranks, or write letters to Santa. Almost-true crime reports from the special investigations unit of the garbage police. How-to sections on avoiding yard work or voting without thinking. The link between aliens, Mayans and fruitcake, and why hiding under a sleeping bag and screaming is the best defense against bats.
Description
Robb Lightfoot lives in the country and has been fighting a losing battle against home repairs, misbehaving dogs, and his four children. He hates his minivan, but loves his leftovers. In fact, he’ll eat them after they’ve turned green. He’s an expert on how to avoid lawn care—hint, become a soccer coach—and other important topics, such as the best way to scream when a bat is trapped in your tent. Robb was the first to reveal the connection between the Mayan extinction and their secret fruitcake recipe etched into the background of their famous calendars. These 23 tales, illustrated with appropriate and child-safe images, are offered here for the first time as a collection.
