    That s right, that s exactly what 4 year olds do, I had completely forgotten about that And that, too oh, and that Wow I mean, how weird and fascinating Well, at least when depicted by autobiographical cartoonist, comics teacher and young mother Keiler Roberts.What I like most about Keiler Roberts approach to cartooning is that it feels completely unique it has its own rhythm, its own sense of style, layout, structure, and humor It is unconventional yet in tune with how I really feel and experi [...]

    Keiler Roberts draws tales of her small family, most particularly the funny things that her daughter Xia says This was a nice ish read, but I would have enjoyed less meandering context.

    Keiler Roberts is just the best I d read most of this online already on her own website and via Mutha Magazine , but the material stands up to return visits Highly recommended to anyone who spends time around small children.

    One of the things that stands out in Keiler Robert s Powdered Milk series is its fragmented, episodic representation of her lifech like the lived experience.

    I enjoyed this book a lot The art s a little sparing, but the writing and comedic timing are excellent.

    I was just at a social gathering and my husband and I started describing the various comics from this book to each other and laughing so much that everyone stopped talking to us and so we went home.

    Roberts is one of the best autobio comics artists ever her non liner narration works incredibly well.

    Do you want to be a parent Do you want to be a person Do you want to ntinue going on living in the world Well, so do I So does Keiler Roberts But a lot of times it is very boring or tedious or momentarily beautiful and so.r ending There is a lot of poop and a lot of bathtimes, some walks, and a few holidays It is not very cute She is likedy John Porcellino, with a kid, and probably some different life philosophies But her straightforward, subtle, and somehow surreptitiously deeply emotional cart [...]

    I m fairly new to the Keiler Roberts fan club, but I m all in now I found myself laughing in that way that you laugh when you fully understand the tedium, repetition, exhaustion and annoyance of raising young kids that isn t often acknowledged Then I d show the comic to my wife, and she d laugh the same way.
