Lucy Knisley, author of RELISH: MY LIFE IN THE KITCHEN,  has captured a toddler tantrum perfectly!

Lucy Knisley - Toddler tantrum

“I took my kid to get a haircut last weekend. I think, in time, I’ll recover.”

She knows what she’s talking about. Her new moving, hilarious, and surprisingly informative book about pregnancy and motherhood, KID GLOVES: NINE MONTHS OF CAREFUL CHAOS, is coming from First Second in February 2019.


Italian rights have already gone to Rizzoli.



More Praise for LOVE THAT BUNCH!


Love That Bunch… It’s a form of fearless authenticity that’s now practically commonplace.”—San Francisco Magazine

“Shamelessly candid… Kominsky-Crumb has brought an uncompromising honesty and fearlessness to the comics form. She has refused to be contained by anyone else’s ideas about what is permissible to depict and to write about, and her work always surprises.” —Publishers Weekly
