Humor/Satire

The ‘How to Steer Your Kid’ Series

In the first installment of the How to Steer Your Kid series, M.P. MacDougall presents a string of hilarious vignettes about his upbringing as the youngest of twelve kids. He spent his childhood surrounded by obnoxious cows, Big Meanies, perilous expeditions, ravenous Sasquatches, mindless herds of picnickers, and meals that would make Julia Child roll over in her grave. His only means to survive it all was to assume a powerful alter-ego: Jet Screamer!

In this, the second installment in the How to Steer Your Kid series, M. P. MacDougall returns with a cast of irreverent characters and hilarious, only slightly embellished stories. There’s something for everyone who ever grew up in a somewhat weird family.
MacDougall relates a variety of slapstick adventures – from taxidermy gone horribly wrong, to near-drownings while encased in a sleeping bag, to being hunted by a mythical monster with a sadistic sense of humor. Redneck neighbors and red-hot peppers are no match for the erstwhile Jet Screamer. Suffering personal injury to his extremities and personal insults to his psyche, MacDougall survives it all with a steady diet of Meat Sandwiches – his self-proclaimed Food for REAL Men.

Praise for M.P. MacDougall

Definitely a 5 plus star rating. It's a WOW read, and a real tearjerker...

– Kindle Customer, on ‘The Icarus Effect’

The story was so well written that I could hear the gunfire and picture the chaos in my head.

– Kindle Customer, on ‘One Is A Warrior’

Knowing that this is the first in a trilogy, I tried to take it slowly, to savor it until the next book is released, but I couldn’t do it. This book was so good, I couldn’t put it down!

– R., Kindle Customer, on ‘The Blood of Tyrants’

It's hard to keep reading when you laugh until your eyes water. Just remember, it's 'good gristle'!

– Martin, Kindle Customer, on ‘Jet Screamer’

Oh, to be a fly on the wall in this household. Great fun, cannot wait until the next installment!
