About the Book

Tad is back and he's blogger than ever, in a laugh-out-loud sequel to the book Jon Stewart called "hilarious to anyone who ever went through, is currently in, might go to, or flunked out of middle school."

Tad may have survived seventh grade, but his troubles are just getting started. From his first sort-of date (a disaster) to his first semiformal dance (a bigger disaster), all Tad wants to do is make it out of this year alive. But that's not the only reason he keeps a blog. Tad also has a lot of important thoughts he needs to get off his chest, like: I don't get the phrase "you are what you eat." It seems to me like the only people that's true for are cannibals.

This highly illustrated and hilarious book is by the Emmy® Award-winning head writer of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver and is based on a column in MAD Magazine. Through a series of daily entries, readers are treated to a year in Tad's blog that will leave them in stitches.

Critical Praise

Praise for PLANET TAD: “Hilarious to anyone who ever went through, is currently in, might go to, or flunked out of middle school.” - Jon Stewart

Praise for PLANET TAD: “This book will make you laugh. If you’re not into that sort of thing, consider yourself warned.” - Stephen Colbert

Praise for PLANET TAD: “Tad is the rapid-fire, pop-culture-referencing, actually-funny stand-up-comic-in-waiting that I wanted to be in middle school!” - Tom Angleberger

“Laugh-out-loud mishaps will resonate with readers in early adolescence, who no doubt have encountered similarly sticky situations. Cartoon sketches and Tad’s one-off observations about life add even more humor, making for a quick, episodic story ideal for reluctant readers, middle schoolers, and the Wimpy Kid crowd.” - ALA Booklist

“Will make readers laugh out loud uproariously and with no reserve. With black-and-white illustrations throughout, this is sure to delight fans of Jeff Kinney’s ‘Wimpy Kid.’ Coming of age is tricky business, but Tad will help readers see the joy in some pretty silly situations.” - School Library Journal
