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.
Lex now focuses on podcast advertising.
