Bride's Little Miseries

Front Cover
Sterling Publishing Company, Inc., 2006 - Humor - 96 pages

What a great gift for the bride drowning in pre-wedding madness! She’ll totally relate to her comic counterpart on the page, who’s coping with everything from a stubborn hairdresser to embarrassing family members. Divided into two parts— “Planning the Wedding” and “Wedding Day”—this little gem is sure to give stressed-out brides-to-be a very welcome laugh. Witty cartoons capture the agony of a fianc with no opinions and a future mother-in-law with lots of opinions; of selecting bridesmaids and choosing a dress that suits everyo≠ and dealing with a pimple that arrives bright and early on the big day! All these little miseries add up to, of course, a happy, fairytale ending as the bride marries the one she loves.

Jennifer Rapp’s cartoons have appeared in Wunderkind, an all-cartoon newspaper. She is the creator of a nationally distributed greeting card li≠ owner of Teetersaw, Inc.; and illustrator of two earlier books: Misery Is a Smell in Your Backpack and Misery Is a Spider in the Bathtub. Jennifer lives in Chicago.
