Remind dad that he’s doing a great job (at least compared to the likes of pop culture and historical dads, like Darth Vader and Pharaoh Akhenaten) with this perfect gift for every father from the New York Times bestselling author of There Are Moms Way Worse Than You.
Following up on the success of Glenn Boozan’s viral gift book, There Are Moms Way Worse Than You: Irrefutable Proof that You Are Indeed a Fantastic Parent (with over 300,000 copies in print), the dad’s companion book sets out to prove to dads all over the world that, however bad they think they are at parenting, there are dads way worse. While Moms Way Worse highlighted creatures across the animal kingdom who are terrible at parenting, Dads Way Worse showcases fictional dads (and their parenting failures) across history and in popular culture. What dad would think he’s doing poorly when compared to Jack from The Shining, Tywin Lannister from Game of Thrones, or…Walter White from Breaking Bad?:
It’s fine if at a barbecue, your “Grill Dad” skills are green As long as what you’re cooking isn’t methamphetamine!
Or Darth Vader:
Oops! Forgot their bathtime? Mess up a mid-day snack? Better than a cauterizing light saber attack.
The pages include plenty of Easter eggs for the true pop-culture nerds and history buffs, plus an informative and hilarious appendix that expands on the faults and foibles of the dads featured within. Boozan’s rhymed couplets, paired with Witte’s clever illustrations, make There Are Dads Way Worse Than You the perfect gift for fathers with a great sense of humor and a penchant for pop culture.
You might not make the Guinness Book for parenting the best— But even so, your kid believes you’re better than the rest.
