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 fiance with no opinions and a future mother-in-law with lots of opinions; of selecting bridesmaids and choosing a dress that suits everyone; 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 line; 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.
