Crappy Children's Art

Previously published as I Am Better Than Your Kids.

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Alphabet of Manliness, the creator of “The Best Page in the Universe,” and overall genius, comes an outrageous, laugh-out-loud critique of children’s artwork that finally cuts those little smug know-it-alls down to size.

What people are saying about Maddox and Crappy Children's Art:

“You’re a menace to healthy development in children.”

“You’re right up there with Hitler, who destroyed thousands of kids’ lives by taking out their parents in concentration camps.”

“Saying you are better than a child just makes you a coward.”

“No one said you had to look at the artwork from your co-worker’s kids. To make an entire book to bash it? Sad.”

“would u like it if u were, like, 4, nd u do a picture nd u work on it for ages, nd u feel really proud, nd ur parents put it in their office, then sum asshole goes and says it’s crap, nd says it’s an F grade. Think about it.”
