-- From morning sickness to swollen ankles, pregnancy is hardly a barrel of laughs. But humorist and illustrator Ella Bop aims to put a smile on the face of even the weariest mom-to-be with the launch of her new book: A Coloring Book for Pregnant Ladies
“Being pregnant is sometimes so awkward that the only thing you can do is laugh,” said Bop. “This book aims to inject a little humor into what are otherwise embarrassing and unpleasant situations for us pregnant ladies.” The book features drawings of scenarios every pregnant woman is sure to face, from pregnancy acne to semi-hysterical husbands and false labor. The illustrations are cute enough to grace the pages of a preschooler’
s coloring book, but the grown-up subject matter is clearly aimed at expectant mothers. Bop’s tongue is placed firmly in her cheek as she reflects on the highs and lows of life as a pregnant woman.
Outside the Lines Press is a family run business founded specifically to publish Bop’s quirky coloring books. “I am extremely proud to self-publish my books with the generous support of my closest friends and family,” said Bop. “My mom hasn’t been this excited to see my drawings since I was in kindergarten.”A Coloring Book for Pregnant Ladies
