The Kid in the Crib is a pitch-perfect parody
of Dr. Seuss. But where the good doctor wrote about a sentient, hat-wearing feline
and the neglected children whose home it invaded, Lex Friedman's PG-retelling
focuses on two attentive parents exhausted by their often inconsolable infant.
A must-read for anyone who now has young children, has in the past had young children, or
has at one point been a young child, this hilarious
book—expertly illustrated by Felix Jason Schlater—will amuse even the most overtired parent,
thanks to passages like this one:
The kid spat up white,
The kid spat up green,
The kid spat up more spit-up
Than we'd ever seen.
