Sick of selfie sticks or those over-sharing TMI-ers in your Facebook feed? Surrounded by millennials sipping pumpkin spice lattes in their Uggs, or self-promoters acting all #grateful and #blessed? The hysterical new LITTLE MISS AND MR. ME ME ME (Three Rivers Press; Trade Paperback Originals; On Sale October 6, 2015) parody series, features adorably damaged adults who’ll make you laugh (and cringe) in recognition.
Written by Thurber Prize winner Dan Zevin the series introduces LITTLE MISS OVERSHARE, MR. SELFIE, LITTLE MISS BASIC, and MR. HUMBLEBRAG.
Illustrated in the same bright, childlike style of the iconic Mr. Man/Little Miss stories, each 32-page book follows a lovably dysfunctional friend you just might know from real life. For example, do any of these sound familiar?
• Little Miss Overshare, who tells a senior citizen about her sex life, discusses her digestive system with her roommate, and chit-chats about her lady problems at the office water cooler.
• Mr. Selfie, who, whenever he feels romantic, whips out his selfie stick and sexts that special someone: himself.
• Little Miss Basic, who loves her Uggs, her pumpkin spice lattes, and texting her BFFs—but hates her boyfriend (Mr. Douchebag).
• Mr. Humblebrag, who has fame, fortune, and a hot fiancée—and just can’t wait to tell everyone how darned #blessed he is.
With illustrations and stories that lampoon the iconic style of the original books, MR. SELFIE, LITTLE MISS BASIC, MR. HUMBLEBRAG, and LITTLE MISS OVERSHARE will make readers laugh out loud—and then give copies to everyone at work.
Dick Cavett treats braggers and humblebraggers alike to a dramatic reading of Dan Zevin’s MR. HUMBLEBRAG, just one of the delightfully sarcastic titles in the Little Miss and Mr. ME ME ME parody series:
