Press Release

HILARIOUS DISPATCHES FROM A HOME FILLED WITH BOYS:
In a household with five young boys, you never know what to expect - except that it's always an adventure!

Author Rachel Balducci is no longer surprised when she has to say things in her house like: "I am not a wrestling mat." "Stay off the roof." "You can invent a jet-pack, but I will not buy the fuel for it." Or, "Wear something nice - like a t-shirt with no stains on it."

As the mother of five boys, Balducci has her hands full, which makes for some hilarious stories. She shares more than 50 of those tales - from finding her boys climbing through windows, making traps for catching bad guys or rooting through the refigerator, ever hungry - in her new delightful book How Do You Tuck in a Superhero?: And Other Delightful Mysteries of Raising Boys.

Readers will laugh out loud at the antics she experiences on a daily basis, as she pulls back the curtain on what a life filled to the brim with boys is like for one woman. From the curious scenes she catches her boys in, to the entertaining conversations she overhears, to the unimaginable rules she's been forced to make, this laugh-out-loud celebration joyfully explores the sweet and wild side of boyhood.
