Additional Information

What do you do when you spot a wild Trump in the election season? New York Times bestselling author and comedian Michael Ian Black has some sage advice for children (and all the rest of us who are scratching our heads in disbelief) in this perfectly timely parody picture book intended for adults that would be hysterical if it wasn’t so true.

The beasty is called an American Trump.
Its skin is bright orange, its figure is plump.
Its fur so complex you might get enveloped.
Its hands though are, sadly, underdeveloped.

The Trump is a curious creature, very often spotted in the wild, but confounding to our youngest citizens. A business mogul, reality TV host, and now…political candidate? Kids (and let’s be honest many adults) might have difficulty discerning just what this thing that’s been dominating news coverage this election cycle is. Could he actually be real? Are those…words coming out of his mouth? Why are his hands so tiny? And perhaps most importantly, what on earth do you do when you encounter an American Trump?

With his signature wit and a classic picture book style, comedian Michael Ian Black introduces those unfamiliar with the Americus Trumpus to his distinguishing features and his mystifying campaign for world domination…sorry…President of the United States.

Great verse this book has in both meter and rhyme,
Arrives on the scene at the very best time!
Its jokes and your chortles will find syncopation
As reading you drink in its choice illustrations.
The subject is viewed both in whole and dissection
like a big, orange, hairy insect collection.
You'll laugh and you'll cry, for its joy is sincere,
But we could be living this nightmare next year.
The book, of course, is a satire and not really intended for children. Let me quote the first page in which a college professor type (illustrated by Marc Rosenthal) is holding forth: "Dear reader, I know that you might be confused/After spotting this creature that's been in the news./What is this strange beast you keep hearing about?/Together, I think we can figure it out...." The verse is consistent quatrians with the same (aabb) rhyme scheme. And of course, there are the references to this "beasty," i.e., "Its hands are, sadly, underdeveloped."
I am a senior citizen (and definitely not a Trump fan!) who leads a group of other seniors in a writing workshop. So this is going to be fun to use with them, my hope being that some of them might attempt writing "A Child's First Book of Hillary."
Although the author (poet) quite clearly is not a fan of the presidential candidate he writes about, his satire is not bitter but consistent with the Dr... Read more
What a fun book - I LOVED it. The take downs of Trumpy/Drumpfy were ALL well deserved, IMO, (but will make his supporters not-so-happy) Well done, Michael Ian Black! I hope "A Child's First Book of Trump" gets LOTS of readers ... and buyers! :)
