For the first time ever, New York Times bestselling author Stefanie Wilder-Taylor’s three whip-smart, practical, and hilarious parenting guides—now in one convenient ebook collection. Covering every stage of child rearing imaginable—from labor pains to growing pains and everywhere in between—this convenient ebook set offers readers access to all things parenting in one collection. The boxed set includes: Sippy Cups Are Not for Chardonnay Friends, family, colleagues, the UPS delivery guy—suddenly everybody is a trove of advice, much of it contradictory and confusing. With dire warnings of what will happen if baby is fed on demand and even direr warnings of what will happen if he isn’t, not to mention hordes of militant “lactivists,” cosleeping advocates, and books on what to worry about next, modern parenthood can seem like a minefield. Here’s how you can separate the practical from the practically certifiable. Naptime Is the New Happy Hour Once the zig-zagging hormones and endless, bleary-eyed exhaustion of the first year have worn off, you’re left with the startling realization that your tiny, immobile bundle has become a rampaging toddler, complete with his or her very own, very forceful personality. How do you deal with that tiny bundle of joy that’s suddenly become, like, a real person? Gummi Bears Should Not Be Organic From the moment life first drops us Hunger Games–style into parenthood with just a naked, crying stranger and Google for company, we’re taunted with scary studies and impassioned opinions about how to do it perfectly. You’re going to need a friend to give you a shoulder to cry on when times get rough, and to give you a smack upside the head when you start replacing Goldfish crackers for kale chips. Luckily, Stefanie Wilder-Taylor’s in the market for a new MFF: Mom Friend Forever.

Now in an annual, treasury-sized book, Baby Blues brings you another year of life with the MacPhersons. Often-befuddled Darryl and always-overworked Wanda manage to parent precocious Zoe, ornery Hammie, and Baby Wren while still keeping their senses of humor and sometimes even sweetness. In this collection, Zoe decides it's time for her to take karate lessons, Wanda declares she needs some time for herself and joins a book (wine?) club, and Hammie discovers the joys of a zip line. Mostly calm Wanda finally reaches her breaking point of asking the kids to clean up, unleashing a new force of nature to the comic strip: the Tsumommy!

Baby Blues is a pitch-perfect and hilarious family-oriented comic strip that typifies modern parenting. It's the director's cut in Kirkman and Scott's newest Baby Blues book. In this chronological collection, readers get a close-up view inside the home of the MacPhersons, a perfectly normal family with perfectly chaotic lives. Daryl and Wanda are deep in the trenches of childrearing and earning their stripes as parents to Zoe, Hammie, and baby Wren. Baby Blues expertly illustrates why Band-Aids remain in short supply, tattling and teasing lead to time-outs, and an unplanned visit to the dentist or auto mechanic occurs just when the bills seem to be caught up.

From its earliest appearance in the 1890s, the newspaper comic strip has told the story of America, from the Irish ghetto of the Yellow Kid to flappers, war heroes, hippies, and today's office drones and soccer moms. American Newspaper Comics is the first comprehensive, authoritative reference work to document this fascinating history, listing over 7,000 different comic strip and cartoon features from American newspapers. While previous books have typically concentrated on the most popular comic strips and panel cartoon series, American Newspaper Comics is designed to be all-inclusive, providing detailed information on important but previously overlooked artists and features. The result of more than twenty years of meticulous research, American Newspaper Comics provides the most complete picture to date of the evolution of newspaper cartoon features and corrects misinformation that has circulated for years in other references. American Newspaper Comics offers a wealth of information, including the start and end dates of features, their format, frequency, creators, and distribution companies. The book also includes handy cross-indexes and a guide to book-length compilations of newspaper cartoons and comics. In addition, the book includes a CD with samples of more than 2,000 cartoon features, including some that may be new to even the most ardent fan or collector.
