This non-fiction book combines humorous moments and facts to make the bare bones come to life about embarrassment. The graphics and more freely placed text format make it less daunting than a textbook. Learn how to deal with almost any kind of embarrassment from the spilled drink on the pants, to the “thing” in the teeth to PIPs: Parents in Public. And there are facts that are both useful (the why of a red face when embarrassed) to things like how many times a day we um… toot (I promise, it deals with embarrassment and not there just for gross factor).
A graphic novel that makes embarrassment into something hilarious – and normal.
You’re not alone! No way are you the first kid who ever tripped and fell in public. Or spilled water on your pants so it looked like… you know! For those moments and more, here’s, the book that understands what you’re going through when you get caught farting in class.
Laugh-out-loud funny yet enormously compassionate, So Embarrassing is a comics-style compilation of stories about awkward and embarrassing situations for kids. Written and drawn by Charise Mericle Harper, the bestselling creator of the Just Grace series, So Embarrassing combines humor, science facts (what happens when we blush, for example), tips for quickly recovering from a cringe-worthy situation, and practical advice––like what to say to comfort a totally embarrassed friend.
