BAD FOR YOU takes a historical look at the hysterical horror adults have felt about kids starting back with Plato (yeah, that one) and his worries over the new “technology” from his time: the written word! Kevin C. Pyle and Scott Cunningham cleverly expose the long-standing FIGHT AGAINST FUN for what it really is: a bunch of anxious adults grasping at straws, ignoring scientific data, and blindly yearning for the good old days that never were.
“Scott Cunningham and Kevin Pyle’s Bad For You is an antidote for all the lies we’ve been fed our whole lives. It’s a brilliant documentary in the form of a comic — but that doesn’t come close to capturing the humor, style and surprise they bring to every page. Like a Mad magazine parody, it’s full of laughs — until you realize, IT’S ALL TRUE!” – Peter Kuper, Mad cartoonist for Spy vs Spy
“This book will help kids solve the mystery of where all the fun has gone—and demand it back. More power to ’em!” – Lenore Skenazy, America’s Worst Mom and founder of the book and blog Free-Range Kids
