Happy Fathers Day?! Publishers Weekly's "The 10 Worst Dads in Books"

With this list, perhaps Publishers Weekly is marking a bit of an anti-celebration of dads.  Then again, if one is familiar with the "The 10 Worst Dads in Books", then perhaps one better appreciates the father one has...right?

And don't think that moms got off easy this year: Here is the link to the Publishers Weekly list of "The 10 Worst Mothers in Booksfrom May.

Based upon these two lists, Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov is easily the template for worst set of parents in literature, since it is the only book that is on both the Worst Mothers [Charlotte Haze] and Worst Dads [Humbert Humbert] lists.

These books and more can be found at your local Burbank Library, as well as many books featuring good moms and dads, and books on parenting too!
