    Goodness knows I tried to enjoy If the Raindrops United Drawings and Cartoons by Judah Friedlander; unfortunately Friedlander's reputation as a weirdo preceded him and many if not most of the cartoons in this book were weird to the point of being disturbing

    I'm not sure how one reviews a book of drawings and cartoons There weren't necessarily many words a few pages at most but the doodles were enough to make readers think of what's important to Judah Much of it is relevant to what's happening in the US from social issues to environmental issues And some varies from being uickly understood to taking some time to sink in mostly because I wasn't familiar with the references Much like how he is on television Friedlander inserts intelligent humor in his doodles which I adoredOverall though this is a uaint book of doodles that packs a lot of messages with deep thoughts sometimes bordering controversial but it was a delight to sift throughFor book reviews check out my blog A Reading Kabocha

    I have to be totally honest about Judah Frielander I've always thought of him as a total weirdo and never found him very funny That being said I became intrigued with this book after he did a bizarre interview on The Daily Show and I'm glad I picked it up An obsession with nipples and penises aside most of his drawings are surprisingly insightful and than a few definitely make you pause to think This is great for any fans of the Far Side comics easy sketch style illustration liberal political leanings and off the wall humor

    This collection of drawings and cartoons has some hits and some misses Judah Friedlander is a comedian who also stared in 30 Rock but we librarians know him best from his FIRST book which was highly successful How to beat up anybodyI think my favorite is his self portrait that appears on the cover It gives me hope for my future as an artist

    Meh I loved Judah Friedlander on 30 Rock so I was excited to stumble across this book at the library yesterday Some of it is uite clever and some drawings are even funny A couple pages offer biting commentary on our culture But nearly 90% of the book is so so When I got to the last page my first thought was Whew I'm glad I didn't spend money on THAT
