"A few years into parenthood, I looked back on my experience and one word sprung to mind: naïve. That's French for, 'Buddy, you don't even have a clue.'"

--Bob Schwartz

Popular humor columnist and bestselling author Bob Schwartz takes you on a hilarious ride through the wacky world of family life in his latest book, Would Somebody Please Send Me to My Room! (Glenbridge Publishing, Ltd., June 2005). A father of three, Schwartz says sometimes you've just got to laugh, and has compiled a collection of 49 essays to help you do just that.

Brilliantly illustrated by award-winning artist B.K. Taylor, this is one book for parents that covers it all - from diaper-changing debacles to the hazards of sleepover parties. Desperate homemakers need not despair.Would Somebody Please Send Me to My Room will have you laughing at your trials in no time.

Bob writes of family frolics every parent can relate to in a series of laugh-out-loud stories, including:

· Caught in a Suds-Still! - Havoc wreaked by a broken washing machine.

· Doggone Turtle Gone - The trauma of losing the family pet.

· Scientific No-Know - The dreaded school science fair!

· It's a Ballet New World - Tutus, tiaras, and toe shoes, oh my!

· The Perilous Nature of Pickup - Carpooling: the ride to school that can drive you crazy.

· The Diminutive Drop Kicker - Wrestling (literally) with diaper changing.

· The Rebel Without a Pause - The trouble with two-year-olds.

· In the Shrill of the Night - Baby monitor or air raid siren?

· Does Anyone Have a Sledgehammer for the Piñata? - Children's birthday parties. Need we say more?

In these and many, many other humorous anecdotes, Would Somebody Please Send Me to My Room! deftly captures the hysterical nature of parenthood. It was recently among the winners of the Parent to Parent Adding Wisdom Award, which honors family-friendly media and products.
