Publisher's Summary

What do you do when you spot a wild Trump in the election season? New York Times best-selling 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 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 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.

So funny!!

I loved this book! Dr. Seuss would be proud.
I Love the doctor Seuss style that he used in writing this book.
So simple that even a Trump lover can follow along.
Loved the background music as well. That just made it better.

love this book ... love Michael Ian Black

So clever that I wish I had thought of it. But there is no way I could have done it as well as Michael Ian Black did. Funny and smart. So happy to have bought this. And another reason to follow Black at all the various things he does.

Hysterical!

A brilliant short little book. It's like Dr Seuss and Mark Russell had a baby, and it was this book. A must for all who like humor and politics

gross

This book was the absolute worse thing I ever heard. I find it in poor taste to make fun of an American president in such a way. The author should be ashamed and audible should be ashamed to advertise it.

What a piece of drivel!

Good thing for freedom of speech--I would not ever recommend this piece .... to anyone.
Unfortunate you have to give it even one star to express an opinion

Fantastic!

Captures everything you need to know about the American Trump, and how to avoid it! Should be required reading and listening by all!
