Dumb parents, little brothers, gigantic messes, and homework&mdashthis is the plight of young readers everywhere. And, until now, it had not been expressed by someone so close to the source. Ten-year-old Alexa Kitchen may have an unusual talent&mdashshe is the world's youngest comics artist&mdashbut she really is just like many girls her age. Just trying to get by in a world that seems determined to undermine her at every turn. Luckily she's got a way with a pen and a good sense of humor. This collection of funny, insightful cartoons based on the real-life trials of many families will resonate with young readers everywhere.

" a world that seems determined to undermine her at every turn."

Really? If that were actually the case, I seriously doubt she could (at 10 years old) get a book published, let alone have it available at the library. She may be a quick learner in life (at least about some things), may be witty (I'll have to find out more about this book), but is probably endlessly encouraged to express herself (not everyone enjoys that privilege) & probably has the undying support of at least a few pretty important or influential people (I suspect this includes her family). Although being "dumb" is certainly not limited to "grown-ups" & can be subjective in many cases, many adults certainly do have (or will grab) the authority to push their stupidity on the world much more rigorously than many children.
