The Mincing Mockingbird Guide to Troubled Birds Book
Regular price $16.95
The Mincing Mockingbird Guide to Troubled Birds is an illustrated pocket field guide that enables anyone to quickly identify psychotic, violent or mentally unstable bird species. Full of angry hummingbirds and judgmental parrots, the Guide collects humorous vignettes about the most disturbed birds of America. 64 pages, all in eye-popping color! Bonus: bird attack statistics from 1970 and study questions to make sure you've done your homework. Reviews of the guide have ranged from "hilarious" and "a classic" to "these should be burned along with Harry Potter and Lolita, you bad, bad, bad, bad man." Most libraries will not protest the banning of this book, and several librarians have openly called it a "nasty bit of business." There's nothing too horrible in the guide, but all the same there may be words or themes that may be inappropriate for "wee people." Meaning kids. But if you consider yourself one of those "cool" parents, hey, go ahead. Hopefully your kids will pass along their therapy bills to you later on.
