    Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || Amazon || PinterestHAROLD AND THE PURPLE CRAYON was one of my favorite children's books growing up, so when I saw a parody version of the book on Netgalley that proposed to be a satirical look at SCROTUS's so-called presidency, I leaped. I mean, look at that cover. It's a fantastic cover, with an official seal and everything. And the author being named "P. Shauers." It's brilliant.The book is pretty straightfor...

    'Donald and the Golden Crayon' is a rather humorous adult parody picture book written in the style of children's classic 'Harold and the Purple Crayon' by Crockett Johnson. Make no mistake, this is not a book for kids, it features bad language, bad behaviour and the general buffoonery of the fourty-fifth president of the United States. It is written in Trump's inimitable style and covers many of the major controversies the president has being sur...

    We will look back on all this and laugh some day, I hope. In the meantime, here is Herald grown up to be Donald, and his purple crayon has turned to gold, and he has new things he wants to draw before he goes to sleep.The problem with parodies is they have to be very clever to be super funny, and this one tries, but what it is making fun are the very sad things that Donald is doing in real life, not just with his crayon, so it is hard to actually...

    Terrific books. Let me tell you, you'll love it. Great stuff.
  • Jeff
    What fun! One of my all time favorite children's classic 'Harold and the Purple Crayon' by Crockett Johnson was the model/inspiration and, of course, that orange guy, 45. Told as the Don would tell it-- his attempt at language, that is; this takes us on a journey with 'winner'. Very humorous and cleverly put together with perfect illustrations. Liberals and intelligent people will love this.. MAGA fanatics? ... Not so much.This book is NOT for ch...

    HIs room was beautiful, just beautiful. It had beautiful golden curtains, a tremendous golden statue, and a wonderful golden bed. It even had a steamy golden shower.This is precisely what you think it is. And it is MAGICAL. Little Donnie draws many impressive items with that golden crayon. Even if the person who invented crayons is a loser.I feel like I've read a large amount of DT satire books recently, and you know, I'm thinking I need way more...
  • Kamille
    Any story that starts out with ‘Covfefe!’ is alright with me. Hilarious adult picture book! It felt refreshing to laugh bigly at the current politics of my country.
  • Suzze Tiernan
    Written in the style of Harold and the Purple Crayon, this parody makes fun of some of the things 45 has said and done. This time when you shake your head over them, at least you’ll get a good chuckle.
  • Andy Angel
    This made me laugh bigly. An excellent parody of the Donald's time in office so far in the style of a children's storybook. Great illustrations too
  • Jenny Houle
    DONALD AND THE GOLDEN CRAYON is a parody of the award winning book HAROLD AND THE PURPLE CRAYON, with a reminder of all the things our current president is doing wrong.The book is entertaining, in that it pokes fun at the horrific state of things, and gives a little comic relief to the crappy situation. At the same time, it really didn't do much for me. I'm just getting to a point where every "joke" isn't lessening the blow as much as weakening t...
  • Rebekah
    A satire about the child that is the president. Would be even funnier if it weren't so accurate and thus depressing. Thank you to Netgalley for a copy in exchange for an honest review.
  • Beth
    A sadly amusing little book showing Trump as the spoiled child he is, using his own words and actions. Since this is probably at his reading level, maybe he'll pick up a copy thinking it's a glowing biography and instead be met with honest ridicule!*Thanks to NetGalley for the ARC, provided by the author and/or the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
  • Robin Morgan
    I read this book, thanks to a neighbor who had received an advance copy of the through NetGallery.One of the one first picture books I can still remember reading had been “Harold and the Purple Crayon” written Crockett Johnson. In this book, according to its description tells its readers. That: One evening, after thinking it over for some time, Harold decided to go for a walk in the moonlight. Armed only with an oversize purple crayon, young ...

    Covfefe!(Full disclosure: I received a free e-book for review through NetGalley. Trigger warning for references to sexual assault.)A send-up of the popular children's book Harold and the Purple Crayon, Donald and the Golden Crayon features 45 doing what he does best: insulting people of color, celebrating misogyny, building walls, destroying the environment, bagging on the troops, bragging, and just generally winning. (SO MUCH WINNING!) With his ...
  • Cynthia
    Kind of a take off on the children's book "Harold and The Purple Crayon"..... but this isn't a children's book! It has some real good drawings/artwork (mainly using only 2 colors...yellow & black), poking humor at some serious issues re the Trump presidency. It's written in the manner/way that Trump talks...over the top boasting, simple & repetitive, swear words, derogatory towards others......again...nothing in here for kids! I enjoyed it.....I ...
  • Lindsay
    Loved it! A funny adult look at a certain US president. A definite parody and probably full of fake news apparently ;-) This is a funny book showing some of the gaffs and foilbols of the current president as well as some of his more extreme views.
  • Glenda
    Satire that rings true by recounting and quoting Trump’s deeds and words. Good art.
  • Donna Maguire
    Review to follow!
  • Ellery
    I’m a fan of satire and not at all a fan of the main character of this book, so I was primed to love this. But unfortunately, I’m not sure that I’d even consider this satire at all. Instead of making tongue-in-cheek references, the text is all but ripped from the headlines, and it doesn’t feel clever or lighthearted. It’s just a reminder of some of the oddities that have happened in the last few years, regurgitated from Twitter and our ...
  • Annarella
    A funny, entertaining, and unusual polical satire book. I really appreciated it and gave a lot of food for thought.Recommended.Many thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for this ARC
  • Sayo
    This book highlights some of Donald Trumps "accomplishments" as President in an easy to read, easy to understand format. The whole "they look like me" vs "they don't look like me" pretty much sums it up. It's funny, sad and scary all at one.
  • J Aislynn d'Merricksson
    Donald & the Golden Crayon by P Shauers is an adult parody of the popular children's book Harold and the Purple Crayon. Through it we follow the *cough* illustrious US president as he muddles his childish way through various 'adventures’. From a walled off golf course to a multiroom mansion, Donald uses his magical golden crayon to create whatever he wants. When he tries to make a TV that tells him only what he wants to hear, the Golden Crayon ...
  • Elizabeth Green
    This is a parody of Harold's Purple Crayon for adults.*Warning* - offensive language, alluded violence, bigotry, sexual jokes, and a naked person.The book captures the style of President Trump's rhetoric. It makes references to things he as said and tweeted in the past, comparing, and being President of the United States.It was Humorous but not memorable.*I received and ARC from the published Via net-galley. All Opinions are my own*
