The Fat Stupid Kid: A Collection of Short Stories
By: David A. Sparks
About the Book
We’ve all had not-so-bright moments, moments of misunderstanding, confusion, and basic stupidity.
The Fat Stupid Kid: A Collection of Short Stories highlights a delightful set of comical exploits, learning experiences, and familial relationships. The author hopes that the reader would not only experience laughter when reading but also take the lessons learned and use them in their own life. This message is especially relevant today because we need something at which to laugh. The life lessons that the author shares are still needed for today’s youth. This is not a politically correct book. The humor is self-effacing. Some readers might find fault at this self-depreciating humor, but the author says, “I love me, all of me, and I am very comfortable in my skin.” Readers should be also. It is okay to laugh at yourself. God made you the way you are for a purpose. Maybe that purpose is to make others smile. That is the author’s great joy.
