The Owner’s Manual to Terrible Parenting by Guy Delisle

This little cartoon book features a dad being terrible–giving grammar lessons during a bedtime reading of Harry Potter, crashing his son’s remote-control helicopter, giving completely fake explanations for things, and so on. A lot of it does feel like stereotypical “bad dad” situations, but Delisle’s illustrations are great at capturing the expressions of this dad and his kids–particularly the blank stare. I should note that it’s intended for adults, though: there’s profanity sprinkled throughout the book, so preview it before you pass it along to your kids.
