The Pulitzer Prize-winning political cartoonist Ann Telnaes has over the last 20 years skewered injustice, inequality, sham, hypocrisy, racism, misogyny, and corruption with her incendiary combination of elegance, wit, and moral suasion. Indeed, from the Clinton years on, no administration has been spared her fierce line and fiery indignation. 

One Clinton, two Bushes, and an Obama were mere warm-ups for a President who is truly worthy of her excoriating satirical skills. The election of Donald Trump has inspired Telnaes to create a fitting response, her first original book — Trump’s ABC, a children’s board book for adults that chronicles the high points (or low points, if there’s a difference) of Donald Trump’s first six months in office. Featuring sing-songy rhymes and beguiling watercolor drawings, Trump’s ABC is a miniature critique and exposé of Donald Trump and his janissaries, poltroons, and dissemblers, illustrating his public policies, his personal defects, his ethical dysfunction, and the consequences of his Presidency on the lives of Americans — in a format that is cleverly designed to reflect the commander-in-chief’s attention span and mental level.

Press Highlights:

"For Trump’s ABC, Telnaes draws with satiric acid. Her poison-pen distaste for Trump drips from every colorful page." — The Washington Post

"Ann Telnaes keeps coming up with funny, relevant and clever cartoons on a daily basis — and here you have a chance to see her amazing wit all in one place. Will you cry or laugh? No telling…" — Martina Navratilova

"Proceed with caution… the intelligence, wit and insight of her work, delivered through stunning art could very well bring about enlightenment along with great entertainment. You’ve been warned." — Wiley Miller (Non Sequitur)
