9780836220902: Custody of Dad

Picture a Woodstock-generation newly divorced father--give him custody of his five children, illustrate with cartoons throughout, and sprinkle in pithy quotations.  You've got "Custody of Dad," a warmhearted account of a single father's attempts to manage his chaotic household--and the story of how he and his children all grow up together.
     Former director of creative services for Hallmark Cards, writer/cartoonist Barrie Maguire combines humor with poignancy in his offbeat, touching vignettes of family life.
     Laughter...tears...loss...compassion...hilarity...pathos...wit..."Custody of Dad" holds all these and something more--wisdom.
