Tony Phillips, who writes a daily blog at fifthavenuegazette.com, is working on what he describes as childrens stories that should never be read to children.
Phillips says he and his 17-year-old daughter have written stories together, always adapting the following point of view: Remove the dumb stuff youve learned and what would the world look like?
Apparently what youre left with is 10 satirical stories including: You Have Asthma So You Always Lose; Suzies Parents Got Divorced and It Was Her Fault; Mary Isnt Smart, But Shes Pretty; and a socio-economical tale, Bobbys Poor Because Hes Black.
Phillips says hes written half the stories and figures the first collection in his Little Dingly Books series will be about 50 pages.
In the meantime, hes looking for an illustrator and publisher.
