about this item

"A Rule Is To Break says: Go ahead and throw your best self a party! So glad it exists."Kristin Hersh, Throwing Muses

"After encountering the lively little ****** in John and Jana's delightful A Rule is To Break, I will always remember the playful little devil with a mind of her own. A children's book on anarchy seems somehow just right: an instinctive, intuitive sense of fairness, community, and interdependence sits naturally enough with a desire for participatory democracy, self-determination, and peace and global justice."Bill Ayers, author ofTo Teach: The Journey in Comics and Fugitive Days

Simply celebrating childhood: the joy, the wonder of discovery, the spontaneity, and strong emotions. . . . Wild Child is free to do as she pleases.A Rule Is To Break: A Child's Guide to Anarchy follows Wild Child as she learns about just being herself and how that translates into kid autonomy. It presents the ideas of challenging societal expectations and tradition and expressing yourself freely in kid-terms that are both funny and thought provokingit even functions as a guidebook for adults to understand what it is to be a critically thinking, creative individual. Wild Child isthe role model for disobedience that is sometimes civil.
