Montague, creator of the web series Kid President, presents a recipe along the lines of cartoonist Dav Pilkey’s Dog Man to help adult readers reclaim the laughter and exuberance of childhood. He distills his findings after visiting more than 100 classrooms across the United States and asking the schoolchildren what they want from adults. The answer: kids want adults to be present in their lives, to listen to and do things with them. Montague offers guidance in remembering what it was like to be a kid and how to view the world with eyes full of wonder.
VERDICT A fantastic, fanciful guide to becoming not only a happier adult but one who gives back and helps the next generation.
