Torrance, CA (PRWEB) August 25, 2005
Los Angeles, Calif. (PRWEB) August 23, 2005 Â Hillary Clinton and Ted Kennedy are often the butt of conservative jokes, but now they're being portrayed as shrewish cartoon characters in an upcoming book meant forÂ kids?!?
World Ahead is pleased to announce the upcoming release of "Help! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed!" (World Ahead Publishing; hardcover: $15.95; ISBN 0-9767269-0-4) by Katharine DeBrecht. The full-color picture book tells the story of two brothers who open a lemonade stand only to encounter a Kennedy-esque mayor determined to tax away their profits while a pants-suit clad Hillary outlaws sugary drinks and an ACLU lawyer confiscates their picture of Jesus.
ÂWith left-wing books like 'Rainbow Fish' and 'King & King' flooding our nation's classrooms, 'Liberals Under My Bed' lets conservative parents share a story with their kids that reflects their values, while having fun doing it,Â says World Ahead president Eric M. Jackson. ÂNot only is it important to teach kids about the American Dream, they must also understand that there are people out there who don't believe in freedom and traditional values.Â
Author DeBrecht was inspired to write the bookÂwhich is illustrated by Reuben Award winning artist Jim HummelÂwhen her young son questioned her about why she was supporting George W. Bush in the 2000 election. ÂBecause the harder Daddy works and the more money he makes, the more money liberals want to take out of his pocket,Â Debrecht said. When her son then peered under the bed and asked ÂWhere are these liberals, Mom?Â the 'Help! Mom!' series was born.
Liberal pundit Alan Colmes has blasted the book as ÂbrainwashingÂ on his radio show, and the usually staid Wall Street Journal called it Âpolitically abrasive children's literature,Â but Jackson dismisses complaints that the picture book's politics are too brazen for the Barney set.
ÂLiberals have been indoctrinating America's kids by stealth for years,Â scoffs Jackson. ÂIf this book was about gay kings or socialist fish they wouldn't complain. But traditional values? That's another story.Â
Indeed, all signs suggest that conservatives are eager to embrace the book. Anti-tax guru Grover Norquist praised "Liberals Under My Bed" as a great way Âto teach kids about the American Dream,Â and KSFO radio host Melanie Morgan hailed it as Âthe answer to a baseball mom's prayers.Â
"Help! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed" will be available in bookstores nationwide on Sept. 20.
