        Hi I m Brian Gordon Thanks for dropping by.I decided in kindergarten that I wanted to be a cartoonist My classmates had equally unrealistic life goals, like becoming superheroes or princesses, but I was tenacious So far, things are working out okay Secret to my success I suck worse at everything else You get a lot of drawing done when Plan B is Starve To Death My comics are largely inspired by my struggles as a parent, my fascination with technology, science and all things geeky Oh, and a constant, crushing wave of self doubt and anxiety That s a big source of inspiration, too It s good work if you can get it Brian

    1. Everyone that decides to have children is at one point and time a new parent. This book should probably be handed out from the hospital as you leave. This guy knows the real truth about the little ones that those other baby books never tell you. and then: Sometimes they are worth it.Most of this book can be found online. But so what? These comics are cute as crap and it would make a great gift. Totally four stars.Booksource: Netgalley in exchange for review.


    2. My wife and I were beside ourselves with excitement in the weeks leading up to the birth of our first child. We had read all the parenting books, taken all the classes, and we were ready! Or so we thought.Never have I read truer words! Nothing can really prepare you for parenthood. And I find hard to understand and/or believe those perfect parents with perfect children.Being a parent both sucks and is incredibly amazing. Your whole life changes dramatically, and there's nothing more beautiful or [...]


    3. No, I'm not a parent.But I still laughed so hard!It was in a day when I was feeling really down. I needed some laughs and this book made it for me. I'm not into comics exactly but when it's good, it's good.And it's even better if it makes you smile for a while.More:(view spoiler)[ (hide spoiler)]I have the paperback version. I think I'm going to lend this one to certain someones ;) .["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br [...]


    4. This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life.I have seen these comics floating around the internet and have enjoyed them. When I saw that there was a whole book of this comic, I knew that I had to take a look. A lot of the comics featured in this book were the same ones that I had seen online but I thought that this was such a fun little book of comics.The thing that I love about this comic is that not only are they funny, they are easy to relate to. I have kids and I could see myself o [...]


    5. Fun fun fun.I don't even have kids, yet these hilarious comics are all too familiar when playing auntie with my niece and nephew.I've seen a few of these before, it is the web after all, but to have a whole book filled with them is comedy hour!Pro of being an aunt, I can tell them a whole lot more of crap than their parents can.Also, I have given them (cheap) instruments as gifts, lots!, so they can mesmerize their parents with their talent. I know, I'm such a thoughtful person.Brian Gordon nail [...]


    6. Cute little comic about the trials of parenting. Pretty short book that can be read in about 10 minutes. Had fun reading this, but I didn't find anything to be laugh out loud funny. Still a decent read though. Would make a cute baby shower gift. 3/5Buy, Borrow or Bin Verdict: BorrowNote: I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.


    7. The first thing I did after finishing Fowl Language was go on Facebook and like the Fowl Language Comics page, so it's safe to say I very much liked it. Thanks to the FB page I could continue my fun going through the cartoons, some new and some I'd seen in the book. They were still funny 'cause they were true.I came across this book by accident, and the first thing that came to mind was that it would be a cute gift for my cousin who just became a mom. So I hopped over to NetGalley, and got my co [...]


    8. Fowl Language: Welcome to Parenting is a collection of funny cartoons about parenting: it "takes an unvarnished look at the tedium and aggravation of parenting, while never forgetting that the reason we put up with those little jerks is that we love them so damn much. By poking fun at the daily struggles parents face, these cartoons help all of us feel less alone in our continual struggle to stay sane."It’s always comforting to realize that I’m not alone in this madness, and to be reminded t [...]


    9. While I have over my lifetime known many little humans, some related to me that grew up to then have little humans of their very own, and I even once (although hard for some to imagine) was a little human myself, I am not a parent.And while reading through this book I found so much truth and humor I laughed out loud with tears streaming down my face.So imagine how much more new parents, parents, old and experienced parents, grandparents will enjoy this book.I'm making a note to myself to give th [...]


    10. Fowl Language by Brian Gordon is a very funny book that expresses what all of us parents feel at one time or another but won't say it out loud. It is zany, true, delightful, and needs to be in every home for stress relief. The cartoons have such wonderful expressions and the art tells it all without any words needed. I giggled many times through out this book This guy has a gift of hitting the issue and using his talent just right. Issues in the book include eating, bedtime, travel, gaming, dres [...]


    11. So this collection of cartoons is going to be one thing too, two different type of people.1) The best how to with dealing with children and that your are not fudging anything up. Or2) The best motivation for using contraceptives. Doesn't matter which category you fall under. Anyone will find this collection of comics humorous and accurate. This will make a great gift for anyoneC provided by Netgalley for review


    12. For every parent who weathered and survived the toddler years! It is going to be my go to gift for parents who are in the trenches with young children.


    13. These comics range from humorously true, to frighteningly true, to disturbingly true. If you’re a parent of kids of any age, you've lived through most of this. I have to say, I laughed pretty loudly at several of these. There were many others that made me nod sagely. I couldn't relate to every single panel - but when I could, it completely depicted something I had endured. Worth reading. Especially if you’re a parent. Thanks to NetGalley and Andrews McMeel Publishing for a copy in return for [...]


    14. I just finished reading Fowl Language: Welcome to Parenting by Brian Gordon. It is so funny! I've seen some of these comics on the internet and have loved them so when I saw that it is a Read Now book on NetGalley I had to try it out. This is a super quick read with plenty of laughs. So many of the situations looked very familiar!As a word of caution, there are a few f words in there and other swear words.I received an ARC of this book in NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.


    15. If you are on Facebook, you have probably seen panels from this comic floating around. I don't think I have seen one yet that I can't relate to. Having them all in one volume is a bonus. My favorite one is your child not being able to find"it" even when it is right in front of his.her nose. I definitely recommend this one for any parent. Trust me, you will be able to relate!



    16. This is the perfect break for any parent. Little snippets of real events that occur during parenthood. I laughed out loud with tears forming in my eyes as I related to so many of these comic pages. This specific video review will be included in the March 2018 wrap-up. For other video book reviews check out my YouTube Channel: Steph's Rom Book Talk.



    17. *I received this book from NetGalley in return for a fair review.*My first book by this author. I was looking around Netgalley to see what they had available to be 'read now' and spotted this book here in the humor area. Glanced at a few reviews over on - which included several pictures from the book - and found the pictures humorous. So I selected this book to read.Like the last book I attempted to read through Netgalley, I ended up starring at the provided file with confusion. Well, took me a [...]


    18. Author/Artist: Brian GordonGenre: humorPublisher: Andrews McMeel PublishingPublication Date: March 2016*I was provided an advance copy of this publication in exchange for providing an honest review*As a mom and a grandma, I know from experience that parenting takes a lot of serious work, but also requires a good sense of humor. Without being able to laugh at mishaps, every parent would be a basket case by the time their children reach adulthood. Fowl Language: Welcome to Parenting is a collectio [...]


    19. 'Fowl Language: Welcome to Parenting' by Brian Gordon is by a cartoonist in the trenches of raising little kids. While the cartoons look kid-friendly, the occasional bad words make it something for the grown-ups. Besides, the kids wouldn't get most of the humor anyway.The book starts with a hilarious introduction by the author that should let most parents breathe a sigh of relief. We meet parents who seem to have their act together but we all know, like Brian Gordon, that they are "big fat liars [...]


    20. I loved this book, it made me laugh and then laugh some more. As I was reading, I identified with almost all of the pages. As the parent of two grown children, I see my children experiencing the same things I went through with their children. I definitely agree with the comment in the book description about giving this book at baby showers. I think it would be greatly appreciated to see that other parents went through what you will go through soon. The page that really hit home with me was the o [...]


    21. I bought this book at the National At Home Dad Network Convention, and got a chance to meet the author. I was so excited that I read it that night in my hotel room. Since I've been back from the convention, literally not a day had gone by that a situation hasn't made me think about one of the cartoons in this book and laugh a little. Brian Gordon manages to lay out a thorough account of the everyday frustrations and struggles of parenting, as well as the rich rewards, in a humorous and delightfu [...]


    22. So wonderfully funny - and while I don't have kids, I can totally identify with most of the situations the author depicts - either from my experiences with other people's kids, or from my own childhood, and the way I reacted to things. I just love how the Gordon manages to infuse so much expression into the cute little duck faces! This is definitely a feel-good book that will have you chuckling either in recognition of the situations or in relief that you won't have to experience them. ARC recei [...]


    23. Ini salah satu buku parenting yang lucu. Disajikan dalam bentuk komik strip, dengan tokoh Dicky dan Jackie si bebek bersama anak-anaknya. Ada beberapa komik yang hwaa-gue-banget tapi ada juga yang kayaknya hanya cocok dengan orang tua di luar sana. Tapi bolehlah disimak sebagai hiburan bagi para orang tua


    24. Thank you to the publisher for sending me a copy of this book to review! I very much enjoyed it, despite not having children. I have definitely seen this behavior, both as a librarian and with my friends who have children. I think most parents would enjoy reading it, as it would definitely help them feel less alone!


    25. A series of cartoons on the funny parts of being a parent, from the perspective of a father. I think this will be a great gift for young fathers for father's day. Or with a shower gift, although they may not really "get" it until their kids are to school age. Oh, and they are ducks why? who knows, but it's cuteC from Netgalley.




    26. Will definitely have to share this webcomic with my brother, even though my nephew might not be at that level yet
