Matt Kracht is an amateur birder, writer, and illustrator who enjoys creating books that celebrate the humour inherent in life's absurdities. Based in Seattle, he enjoys gazing out the window at the beautiful waters of Puget Sound and making fun of birds.
"...Sort of natural science reimagined as a spurned lover's drunken rant."--The Washington Post
"The Field Guide to Dumb Birds of the Whole Stupid World is the
funniest book I've read since The Field Guide to Dumb Birds of
North America, which we keep in prominent display in our home. I've
bought so many copies of that book to give away to friends and
relatives that Matt Kracht owes me big-time."
-- C.J. Box, #1 New York Times Best Selling Author of Dark Sky
"Full of NSFW names and descriptions for different species that'll have you LOL-ing even if you never actually go looking for said birds IRL."-- Buzzfeed
"If you're looking for a laugh, some facts, and an introduction to plenty a bird that you didn't know existed, this series of books and the calendar are sure to please."-- Geek Mom
"Snarky and irreverent as this volume is, it's also a soothing counterpoint to all the Very Serious bird guides currently on the market. I've always wanted to get into bird-watching, but every book out there makes me feel hopelessly inadequate. This guide...makes me feel like birding is something I could do."--The Frumious Consortium
