About the Book



The authors of the "New York Times" bestseller "Awkward Family Photos" are back with a hilarious tribute to the unbreakable--and sometimes uncomfortable--bond between people and their pets.



Book Synopsis



The authors of the New York Times bestseller Awkward Family Photos are back with a hilarious tribute to the unbreakable and sometimes uncomfortable bond between people and their pets.

There are few things more rewarding than having a pet. They love us unconditionally, shower us with attention, and because of them, we actually live longer. So, what can possibly be awkward about our animal BFFs? Well . . . nothing. In fact, we're the awkward ones. We adore our pets, but let's face it--sometimes L-O-V-E makes us go a little overboard. Like giving them middle names, throwing them elaborate birthday parties, and making them a Christmas sweater to match with the rest of the family. Truth is, what they cherish most is our companionship. And maybe that's the reason we care about them so much--because for such simple pleasures, they allow us to be as awkward as we want.



Review Quotes



Online buzz for AwkwardFamilyPetPhotos.com:

The folks who brought the Internet the face-palming absurdity that is Awkward Family Photos have struck comedy gold again with Awkward Family Pet Photos. --AOL

Hilariously awkward. --MSNBC.com

The genius minds behind the hilarious site Awkward Family Photos - which features cringe-worthy, embarrassing photos of fairly creepy, fashion-challenged families - have taken their collection of awkward photos to a whole new level with their hysterical new site, Awkward Family Pet Photos. -AnimalPlanet.com

Praise for Awkward Family Photos

This is the best book of embarrassing and strange photos of people who look like my family that I have ever seen. --Judd Apatow

A living, breathing, laugh-out-loud reminder that no matter how badly you dressed, how oddly you posed, and how weird Uncle Dave who lived in the basement was, somebody out there had it worse. --Jennifer Weiner, bestselling author of In Her Shoes

Being a test tube baby doesn't seem such a bad idea after looking at these folks. I laughed till it hurt. To paraphrase Tolstoy... every family is freaky in its own way. There's so much love here- but maybe a little more pain, or desperation, or bewilderment. I often feel slightly sad or guilty that I'm not closer with my own family- but looking at this bunch I sense we all have something in common and I'm far from being alone. --David Byrne

Anything that both makes me laugh and think my family isn't so embarrassing deserves to be a book. --Joel Stein, Time magazine columnist

I wept with laughter fourteen times while reading this book and snorted aloud twice. I dare you to find a higher weep/snort ratio in any other publication. --Karen McCullah Lutz, screenwriter of Legally Blonde and The Ugly Truth

Awkward Family Photos is the funniest book that I've read in a long time. It reminds you that it's okay to laugh at yourself and celebrates the family that made you awkward in the first place. --Mia Kirshner, The L Word

Awkward Family Photos is absolutely hysterical, yet at the same time, it's a stunningly accurate photographic record of the late 20th century American family. Now I can be certain I was not alone in my awkwardness. --Adam Herz, Writer, American Pie I, II, III
