ISBN 978-0-692-58125-4 (filthy); 978-0-9975227-0-9 (clean)
The sweary, grown-up version is maroon; the all-ages version with a nimble, clean vocabulary is green.
Either is $12.95 in the US, plus tax n’ shipping. Thanks!
One parent to another:
Neither has graphic violence. The green book doesn’t show obscene gestures, nothing sexier than a husband and wife kissing (clothed), someone who is in the shower but you can’t see anything naughty, and one guy says “crap.”
The red book is F-bomb ground zero.
Ballad of Brighid Electronic editions:
How to manipulate and be manipulated by executive producers, a fight over basketball, another fight about bigger things, a decision.
Adult or Kid-Friendly, $2.00
