I had the pleasure of meeting Richard P. Weiner* several years ago, and since then we have become admirers of each other’s work — which has led to many enlightening and entertaining discussions on matters both literary and, um, not-so-literary.
And so, I am pleased to implore you to…
1.) You will laugh until you cry — or at least, you will if you share my (admittedly juvenile) sense of humor. I suspect that it would also benefit individuals who are burned out and punch-drunk from parenting, which is basically anyone who has a kid of any age.
2.) If you have a Kindle, IT IS FREE (at least it is RIGHT NOW WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR???). You can also purchase the paperback for about 5-8 USD, thanks to Amazon’s weird variable pricing algorithm.**
3.) Look, if Richard P. Weiner were a celebrity, you would already own this. You know you would. So why not, for once, support a non-celebrity children’s picture book author AND, as a bonus, get a book that’s actually fun to read…instead of some sanctimonious ghostwritten $#!+ about why sharing is important or how it’s not nice to be a bully or guess what all kids are perfect just the way they are, even if they don’t conform to societal norms.
I loved Mr. Nuts and Mr. Balls, and I highly recommend it. However, as I’ve already said, you don’t have to take my word for it.
