Book Review: Lunarbaboon: The Daily Life of Parenthood

Comedic and Heartfelt (5 stars)

Lunarbaboon's comics are the perfect mix of sassy and sweet. Parenting can be the hardest job on the planet and the observations shared in comic form are ones most parents are sure to feel personal. If you've enjoyed the work of Hyperbole and a Half, Sarah's Scribbles, or Fowl Language chances are you'll enjoy this as much as I did.

I think this would make a thoughtful gift for new parents.

Lunarbaboon: The Daily Life of Parenthood by Christopher Grady

Humor, Comics, Parenting
Digital/Print (128 pages, ANDREWS MCMEEL)

Explore the daily struggles and humor of family life with Lunarbaboon. He’s just like any other dad--but vaguely hairier because he’s half man/half moon monkey.
Lunarbaboon shares life's parenting moments from the perspective of a 30-something dad/husband/chaos survivor. Together with the savvy, laid back Mom, wild child Moishe, baby Matilda, and a former Julliard student (their cat), Lunarbaboon must navigate the family and social dynamics of everyday life. Ranging from the hilarious (defeating closet monsters with a “stun” blaster that offers surprising facts about bears, Mars, and cats) to the sweet (the gray scale-to color transition out of depression at the touch of a loved one), this collection explores the bonds within a family and all the characters who bring both order and chaos to life.
Lunarbaboon’s perfect meld of crabby humor and moments of impactful honesty give these comics a wide range and distinctive voice that’s both comical and sincere.
