New childrenÂ?s book from World Ahead features Clinton, Ted Kennedy as cartoon villains. Hailed as alternative to stories of 'gay kings and socialist fish.'

Los Angeles, Calif. (PRWEB) August 23, 2005 – 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 for…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.

“With 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,” says World Ahead president Eric M. Jackson. “Not 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.”

Author DeBrecht was inspired to write the book—which is illustrated by Reuben Award winning artist Jim Hummel—when her young son questioned her about why she was supporting George W. Bush in the 2000 election. “Because the harder Daddy works and the more money he makes, the more money liberals want to take out of his pocket,” Debrecht said. When her son then peered under the bed and asked “Where are these liberals, Mom?” the 'Help! Mom!' series was born.

Liberal pundit Alan Colmes has blasted the book as “brainwashing” on his radio show, and the usually staid Wall Street Journal called it “politically abrasive children's literature,” but Jackson dismisses complaints that the picture book's politics are too brazen for the Barney set.

“Liberals have been indoctrinating America's kids by stealth for years,” scoffs Jackson. “If this book was about gay kings or socialist fish they wouldn't complain. But traditional values? That's another story.”

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 “to teach kids about the American Dream,” and KSFO radio host Melanie Morgan hailed it as “the answer to a baseball mom's prayers.”

"Help! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed" will be available in bookstores nationwide on Sept. 20.
