“You’re turning 90 this year and in the past year you published three children’s books, a parenting book of poems about toddlers, had the second reading of a musical, and finished the first draft of a film. When are you dropping your computer into the Hudson River?”

Award Winning Author Howard Eisenberg is turning 90 this year as an author, journalist, songwriter, playwright. Howard has written 10 books, a musical, a film, magazine articles for major press, been reviewed by the New York Times, Sports Illustrated, Parade, Baby Talk, his wife, Arlene, wrote the bible of parenting What To Expect When You’re Expecting, an inspiration to Howard’s bibliography.

From the husband of the mother who wrote the famous What To Expect When You’re Expecting series, Howard Eisenberg presents Adorable Scoundrels — poems he read during her What to Expect in the Toddler Years tours. A collection of 43 poems, accompanied by bright, colorful illustrations, reminding parents of the wonders of childhood, and a Mother’s Day treat, Adorable Scoundrels can be adorably yours through

Adorable Scoundrels: Now they’re a book You’ll recognize your own toddlers (past or present) in the charming illustrations of Susan Robinson—who has two 3-year-olds of her own—and in the truth-telling verses of author, poet, and playwright Howard Eisenberg who met them first as toddlers of his own and of his much beloved late wife Arlene, who co-wrote the parenting bible, What to Expect When You’re Expecting. Arlene—and the hundreds of toddlers he met with her—became Howard’s inspiration for a treasury of charming Adorable Scoundrel poems that “make you smile when you feel like crying.” After hearing them at Arlene’s lectures parents would ask, “Where can I get the book?” There was no book then, but there is now.

Reader’s Favorite says “Howard Eisenberg captures the exasperation and resignation parents experience when they discover that almost every aspect of daily life needs to be rethought once children arrive. This is the parent’s life exactly, and I love the humor in the poems and the acceptance of the disturbance and mayhem! Tantrums, fussy eaters, selective hearing, getting into danger are all covered in these short poems.”

“Look at the bird! Ooh! Fire truck!
Very pretty tree!
Toddlers open our eyes
To things we’ve forgotten to see.”
