About the Book:
The Pulitzer Prize-winning political cartoonist Ann Telnaes has over the last 20 years skewered injustice, inequality and corruption with her incendiary combination of elegance, wit, and moral suasion. The election of Donald Trump has inspired Telnaes to create a fitting response, her first original book — Trump’s ABC, a children’s board book for adults that chronicles the high points (or low points, if there’s a difference) of Donald Trump’s first six months in office in a format that is cleverly designed to reflect the commander-in-chief’s attention span and mental level.
Featuring sing-songy rhymes and beguiling watercolor drawings, Trump’s ABC is a miniature critique and exposé of Donald Trump — illustrating his public policies, his personal defects, his ethical dysfunction, and the consequences of his Presidency on the lives of Americans.
About the Author:
Ann Telnaes creates editorial cartoons in various mediums- animation, visual essays, live sketches, and traditional print- for The Washington Post. She won the Pulitzer Prize in 2001 for her print cartoons and the National Cartoonists Society’s Reuben for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year for 2016. Her first original book, Trump’s ABC, was published this year by Fantagraphics.
