Inspired by a boy with autism, Unintentional Humor is a laugh-out-loud book that highlights the ambiguity of the English language when experienced by a literal mind. Literal interpretations of common expressions such as Surfing the web, Youre in the dog house, and Pig out demonstrate how humor can be used to increase understanding of cultural and developmental language barriers. Unintentional Humor is filled with eighty-five true stories and ninety original cartoon illustrations providing great family entertainment for people of all ages. The twenty-three pages of definitions make Unintentional Humor an effective teaching tool for both home and school. Unintentional Humor is being developed into school curriculum, learning materials, and a series of additional books.

About the Author:

After years of grappling with her son Brents communication challenges, author Linda Gund Anderson was determined to help others understand the language differences he encountered. Initially focused on the literal interpretation of language experienced by many on the autism spectrum, her message quickly spread to a much larger audience. Using hundreds of the stories collected over the years, she worked together with her son and cartoonist Alan J. Lewis to draw what Brent saw in his literal mind. The unique combination of Brents true stories and Lindas humor provide comic relief that everyone enjoys. Alan J. Lewis is the primary cartoonist for Unintentional Humor. He spent countless hours working with Brent to accurately draw his literal mind. Alan began drawing at an early age and has traveled the world pursuing his art career. He is a talented freelance artist who resides in Colorado.
