Most adult coloring books just promise to zone you out. THIS coloring book takes that relax-you-factor and adds:
LAUGHTER, with its cocktail of happy chemicals (like dopamine and endorphins) to boost your mood and your immune system… AND mixes in a healthy dose of:
CREATIVITY to flex your brain and re-energize you with the adrenaline-rush of creating your own comedy!
RELAX, LAUGH, CREATE!
It’s like sipping a glass of Chardonnay AND doing shots of espresso at the same time!
Based on the long-running cartoon “The Art of Motherhood”, one of the first cartoons to skewer the saintly image of mothering, you’ll laugh out loud while coloring in cookie jars and cranky kids…but that’s not all.
You’ll get a shot at cartooning-it-yourself on our exclusive CIY pages to stretch your creative muscles and turn your OWN frustrations into funnies!
And for those of you who crave a bigger canvas, we’ve also included three Big Coloring Pages (BCP) so you can cover a lot of territory with your 64 (or more) colors.
LAUGH OUTSIDE THE LINES!
33 MOM CARTOONS TO COLOR & 8 CARTOON-IT-YOURSELF PAGES
Long before the birth of “Mommy Culture”, Margie Cherry was giving birth to two daughters and a new kind of humor she dubbed “Mom-Com”, first with her groundbreaking cartoon in 1990, “The Art of Motherhood”, then with her stand-up “Momedy” act (which she had to give up because of all the vomiting…on her part as well as the audience’s), and lastly with her popular seminars, “Mom’s Comedy Workshop”, where she taught moms to save their own sanity by creating comedy to deal with stresses of parenthood. There was considerably less spit-up involved.
Margie traded comedy for career counseling and now finds deep satisfaction in working with clients who do as they’re told, rarely sass her in public, and never, ever wipe their snotty little noses on her favorite shirt.
She lives outside of Philadelphia with her husband Ivan Kimmelman, and her cat Sylvie.
Her daughters are grown, and she assumes that having made them the subject of her cartoons for most of their early years as she mocked motherhood is the reason they have both moved to Brooklyn. She misses them terribly.
