Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 28, 2006
All signs indicate that a liberal politician from Congress named Hillary might be going to jail, and charity is going to benefit. But it may not be the Hillary that you think...
Hillary Clunkton, the fictional cartoon villain from the children's books “Help! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed” (Kids Ahead; hardcover; ISBN 0976726904) and “Help! Mom! Hollywood's in My Hamper” (Kids Ahead; hardcover: $15.95; ISBN 0976726912), will get her comeuppance later this year in an upcoming “Help! Mom!” book by author Katharine DeBrecht. And the hero who apprehends the tax-and-spend liberal in the kid's book will be the real-life winner of a charity auction that is currently open for bids on eBay.
The high bidder of the auction will be caricatured by Reuben Award-winning artist Jim Hummel and written into DeBrecht's upcoming illustrated children's book -- which will be published by Kids Ahead and sold in bookstores nationwide in late-2006 -- as the hero who finally gives Hillary what she deserves for being bossy and constantly trying to tell families what to do.
All proceeds from the eBay auction will go to benefit Operation Gratitude, a charity that sends care packages to U.S. troops stationed overseas.
“I can't publicly reveal what the cause of Congresswoman Hillary Clunkton's downfall will be,” says DeBrecht, whose first book featured the Hillary Clinton look-alike joining with a Ted Kennedy doppelganger to tax and regulate a lemonade stand. “Maybe she'll be sent to detention for demanding that kids hand over their lunch money as campaign donations. Or perhaps she'll be sent up the river for trying to snatch gifts from Santa's sleigh for an affirmative action program for naughty kids. You just never know what a liberal like Hillary is going to do next!”
DeBrecht's conservative children's books have been warmly received by families who support traditional values since her first title debuted last fall. “Liberals Under My Bed” hit #1 on the Barnes & Noble website while drawing praise from Rush Limbaugh and scorn from liberals, including Alan Colmes, Ron Reagan, Andrew Sullivan, the Daily Kos blog, and Hillary Clinton's press secretary. Her new book, “Hollywood's in My Hamper,” lampoons left-wing celebrities such as Madonna, Barbra Streisand, and Sean Penn, while teaching children that Hollywood stars don't always know best.
“Liberals have been targeting children in their war on traditional values for years,” says DeBrecht, a mother of three. “Since they can't persuade adult voters to abandon personal responsibility and embrace the welfare state, they have instead chosen to flood our classrooms and libraries with books about gay kings, socialist fish, and even marijuana use. It's time to put a stop to it -- and ironically Hillary is going to help us do just that!”
The charity auction -- which is titled “Star in a Kid's Book & Send Hillary to Jail” -- will be accepting bids on eBay from now until April 6. The winning bidder, who will be immortalized as a sure-to-be-legendary children's hero, will also receive an autographed copy of the illustration depicting him or her apprehending Hillary.
