  1. Guy Delisle takes a break from his usual travelogue comics to produce a highly amusing look at being a dad, specifically his parenting style towards his young son and daughter The stories range from Delisle s shortcomings as a dad to his mischievous nature trumping his paternal instincts all stories which are almost all hilarious.One of the stories shows Delisle forgetting to put a coin under his son s pillow when his tooth falls out for 3 nights in a row and having to make up a story about why [...]


  2. IO, COMUNQUE, PREFERISCO LA MAMMANon all altezza delle sue opere pi celebri, prima fra tutte quella che gli ha fatto vincere il festival di Angoul me Festival International de la Bande Dessin e, che considera secondo in Europa dopo il Lucca Comics, mentre a me invece risulta buon primo.In questa guida del padre cattivo c qualche banalit , e poche scoperte.Delisle canadese e insieme ai due figli viaggia il mondo al seguito della moglie che lavora per MSF Presumo sia questo il motivo per cui la ma [...]



  3. My favorite Delisle book so far He is a great and simple artist, very clean lines, very attractive and accomplished sense of style, always Meticulous, inviting, and the tone of his voice in his narratives always annoys me, irritates me, even offends me but here he is hilarious in his self deprecating tales of failed or neglectful parenting that most parents and kids, and former kids can relate to I really, really liked it Reminded me of Jeffrey Brown s parenting books such as the Darth Vader or [...]


  4. I ve read two graphic novels by Guy Delisle Pyongyang A Journey in North Korea and Burma Chronicles They were both pretty impressive This one was a big disappointment The book is very short, with just two simple drawings per page Although I do like Delisle s signature artwork, the humor falls flat with me I d go as far as saying some of it is boarder line offensive telling your daughter a bedtime story about a baby that falls to its death outside its bedroom window just not funny Unlike his othe [...]




  5. I found this while looking in my library s online catalog for a different book by the author Hostage This was so different from the book I was looking for that I requested it It took me about 15 20 minutes to read It s a short collection of comics about a dad s interactions with his son and daughter the mother is never seen They were amusing, nothing completely unbelievable, which leads me to believe these scenarios might have actually happened I loved the ones about the Easter bunny and tooth f [...]


  6. El c mic est muy bien Tiene chistes muy buenos Y el formato libro es muy c modo Como gran pega es que se hace corto, se lee en una sentada y te quedas con ganas de m s y pensando si han merecido la pena los 12 que vale en Espa a Pero al terminar lo primero que pens es si hab a m s libros y que los quer a leer as que muy recomendable.


  7. Something different from his usual travel tales, this book focuses on Guy Delisle s experiences in parenting Most of the stories were mediocre Some not even funny at all But rather disturbing Such as scaring his little girl about a tree sprouting from her stomach And a bedtime story about a monkey breaking into the house, killing the baby What a douche


  8. Apr s Pyongyang, j ai encha n direct avec le Guide du mauvais p re C est d un dr le J adore ces petits actes et phrases d enfants criant de v rit Ca se lit tr s tr s vite 20 minutes mais c en est pas moins divertissant J imagine que c est galement une bonne id e cadeau pour un futur papa.Le tome 2 et 3 sont sur ma to read list


  9. Not bad occasionally really funny and to the point, but this is read in just five minutes and then you can forget about it That s not very longlasting entertainment or value for money.




  10. A cartoonist father recounts funny little stories with his kids There is no wife featured in the comics, though the boy mentions a mom once The book as a whole is made up of half a dozen or stories, ranging from practical jokes from the father the chainsaw one was one of my favorite , the hypocrisy of parenting, or just fooling your kids in various ways I think I have encountered nearly all of them in some way or another in my own parenting of my kids, so the stories are even better when you ca [...]


  11. Vraisemblablement inspir des Chroniques d une M re Indigne de Caroline Allard, Delisle avait commenc sur son blogue une s rie de petites histoires mettant en sc ne ses enfants et son moi romanc du moins on l esp re dans des sc nettes o son jugement de p re lui faisait suppos ment d faut Le livre compile ces histoires et en rajoute plusieurs autres Ce qui est extraordinaire avec Guy Delisle c est que malgr qu il utilise un style extr mement simple, ses illustrations sont tellement expressives que [...]


  12. A User s Guide to Neglectful ParentingGuy Delisle, Helge Dascher Translation Like other graphic novels by the author, this book focuses on small, odd, or dysfunctional situations Then he lets the details of the small situations add up for a broader understanding At least that was so in Jerusalem and Pyongyang.That approach does not work so well with Neglectful Parenting the author seems interested in poking fun at himself with improbable situations This does not generalize, at least for me Nor [...]


  13. Delisle Che altro dovrei aggiungere tutta quella simpatia che riversa in ogni sua graphic journalism, quella senza pensiero pur parlando di dittature e guerre Come diventa la sua simpatia se fine a se stessa Un tributo alle risate e al mal di pancia E alla pazzia se letto sul treno mentre tutti vi guardano la pazzia siete voi per chi non lo conosce, sia chiaro Irriverente, come sempre, anche con i suoi bambini Dura troppo poco ma per fortuna si pu rileggere Ogni volta che si vuole.


  14. Fun little book about a father who doesn t really get it that his kids are not his age similar friends there are things which you maybe should avoid discussing with them Such as baby snatching monkey news, when the kid is just about to go to sleepDrawings are as charming as Delisle s usual fareOnly drawback it took maybe 10 minutes to read, so don t expect a book to snuggle up with for a couple of evenings.


  15. Letto in mezz ora mentre facevo l aerosol S T U P E N D O Sto ancora ridendo Guy un pap come tanti alle prese coi due figli la piccola Alice e il maschietto di cui non sappiamo il nome Spiega ridendo com il Coniglio Pasquale pretendendo che il piccolo gli creda, lo spaventa fingendo di tagliarsi una mano con la motosega, ruba con l inganno i cereali alla piccola e tante altre situazioni che ti fanno desiderare di avere un padre cos


  16. Maybe because I am not into comics, I really didn t know what to expect form these books But as soon as I read the first page I didn t want to stop reading Being a parent and reading this book make you laugh from beginning to end, since you can see yourself reflected in so many ways Nice drawings and the daily life events pop up in a very special way Highly recommended.


  17. Ich habe gerade eine sehr sch ne halbe Stunde verbracht und mir die wundersch n einfach gezeichneten Erziehungsfehler von Guy Delisle angeschaut.Ich f hlte mich bestens unterhalten, aber der Fortsetzungsband gefiel mir noch viel besser, da musste ich richtig laut lachen.



  18. Not sure if this is Guide du mauvais p re 1 or a compilation of the three, but I m using it to represent vol 1 All three are good funny, fast reads, relatable 1 2 are better than 3.
