Happy Punks 1 2 3
"To call Happy Punks 1 2 3 ''adorable'' would be an understatement. It tells us ''Welcome to Planet Earth!'' and ''Here''s some cool stuff you could do in life!''"—Teresa Taylor, B*tthole Surfers Welcome to New Flip City, a Busytown for a new era and home of the Happy Punks, twelve colorful, fun-loving, and creatively exciting friends.

A Rule is to Break

release date: Sep 03, 2013
A Rule is to Break
"A Rule Is To Break says: Go ahead and throw your best self a party! So glad it exists."—Kristin Hersh, Throwing Muses "After encountering the lively little anarchist in John and Jana''s delightful A Rule is To Break, I will always remember the playful little devil with a mind of her own. A children''s book on anarchy seems somehow just right: an instinctive, intuitive sense of fairness, community, and interdependence sits naturally enough with a desire for participatory democracy, self-determination, and peace and global justice."—Bill Ayers, author of To Teach: The Journey in Comics and Fugitive Days Simply celebrating childhood: the joy, the wonder of discovery, the spontaneity, and strong emotions. . . . Wild Child is free to do as she pleases. A Rule Is To Break: A Child''s Guide to Anarchy follows Wild Child as she learns about just being herself and how that translates into kid autonomy. It presents the ideas of challenging societal expectations and tradition and expressing yourself freely in kid-terms that are both funny and thought provoking—it even functions as a guidebook for adults to understand what it is to be a critically thinking, creative individual. Wild Child is the role model for disobedience that is sometimes civil. John Seven and Jana Christy''s previous collaboration The Ocean Story won Creative Child magazine''s 2011 Creative Child Award Seal of Excellence and was shortlisted for the 2012 Green Earth Book Award.
