Kids are naturally effortless comedians. Their comical antics and bluntly honest quips can bring a smile or a laugh from even the most time-hardened adult. Authors Dion and Samantha Mitchell call upon their experiences with the kids in their lives and release a picture book for children and adults to enjoy. My Darn Kids!! is their first picture book released through Xlibris.

The stories in this book were taken from real life events from the authors’ son, his friends, and other kids they know. It covers a plethora of situations and venues such as home, school, in the car, over the phone, dining out with the family, “deep” conversations, and a whole lot more. The authors’ son, ten-year-old Joshua Hendricks, lovingly created the illustrations for this entertaining book.

Readers who enjoy a hearty chuckle will appreciate My Darn Kids!! Parents will especially be able to recall similar experiences with their own children. It is a great gift to give to new and seasoned parents and even those who don’t have kids. It’s also a good book to be placed on coffee tables for visitors or business offices in waiting areas, particularly in pediatric offices.

This book will be featured at the Florida Library Association Book Exhibit in Orlando, Florida on April 18-20, 2012.
