From the Author:

NOTES (from Pilkey.com)

"This book contains the very first political comic I've ever written: 'The Bride of Hairy Potty'. It's a humorous story about a mad scientist who happens to be a misogynist (a person who hates women).

In this tale, the evil scientist, Dr. Frankenbeanies, wants to create a monster. He decides to make it a 'lady monster' so he can 'boss it around'. From there, his vile and ignorant ideas get more and more outrageous.

I wanted to show kids how BAD and STUPID it is to discriminate, so I made sure that the mad scientist was as unlikable as possible. His hateful agenda is so backwards, even his naive assistant points it out to him. True to his character, however, the mad scientist's pig-headedness continues until he is finally punished by the very woman he intended to discriminate against.

His punishment is deliberately funny, too. I wanted this despicable character to be SO unsympathetic that my audience wouldn't even feel sorry for him when he gets his 'just reward'.

I have a feeling that some children will read this comic and won't even realize that it has a feminist agenda. But I doubt that any child, not even a two-year-old, would mistake the mad scientist for a 'good guy'. Even if children simply laugh at the story and come away with an idea that it's bad to be mean, then I feel like I accomplished what I set out to do.

Kids learn by examples--- both good and bad examples.

And who knows? Perhaps this silly story will plant a seed: that being a hateful person will make you look evil and foolish, and nobody will care if bad things happen to you."
--Dav Pilkey
