Super Spunky Grandmas and Other Amusing Stuff

A collection of hilarious tales of human (and other) oddities

“A guy who always has a joke to tell
Has full attention when he has the floor.
Alas, he can’t remember very well
And might tell one he told the week before.
But others laugh as though it’s all brand new,
For they have all become forgetful, too.”

– excerpt from Super Spunky Grandmas and Other Amusing Stuff

Human behavior can be truly outrageous, and in this humorous collection of sonnets, Ken Mogren waxes poetic about the quirks and qualms of the human race—and other stuff.

While the stories of simple mindedness, revenge and battles of wits, or lack thereof, contained in this collection are fictional, many are inspired by real events. There is no doubt that certain characters will resemble folks you have encountered in your own life.

A follow-up to highly acclaimed Spunky Grandmas and Other Amusing CharactersSuper Spunky Grandmas and Other Amusing Stuff adds dozens of amusing, tongue-in-cheek observations about human nature and the world we live in, all written in sonnet form. Illustrator, Joella Goyette, is back with cartoonish drawings that introduce the themes of each of the book’s 13 chapters.

The perfect collection for anyone so frustrated with the day-to-day that they need to laugh!

“Ken Mogren has created hilariously familiar characters who I’ve encountered and some who deeply resemble me. It’s easy to laugh at human foibles, but Ken’s turn in many of these sonnets caused me to reflect with greater compassion on what I’ve seen and what I’m becoming.” Aaron Young, Managing Director, Great River Shakespeare Festival
