One of my favorite things to do is to go to the library and browse at complete random, picking up anything that grabs my interest. And that’s precisely how I came across Awkward Family Photos, by Mike Bender and Doug Chernack. I was not disappointed.
Awkwardness. Big time.
If you were alive in the 70s and 80s, you were in some ugly family photos, I guar-an-tee it. But this book goes beyond that. Several steps beyond that.
As the name would suggest, it is mostly a picture book, but there are some captions that prove that less is sometimes more. Much, much more. I don’t want to get anyone’s hopes up too high, but I laughed out loud, uncontrollably, several times. Sometimes just the picture. Sometimes just the caption. But usually both.

Solid gold! Hilarity ensues. Enjoy!!!
