CHUBBY CHILDREN’S AUTHOR PHIL DRAKE TACKLES KID’S WEIGHT ISSUES IN HILARIOUS AND UNIQUELY EMPOWERING SELF-HELP BOOK, “FAT CHANCE”
Children’s Author/humorist Phil Drake admits he was highly aggravated when someone referred to his new book “Fat Chance” as a literary masterpiece. While it may be one of the funniest and most uniquely empowering self-help books for kids ages 8 and up on the subject of body image and struggling with weight issues, Drake says, “It ain’t no “Moby Dick.”
Rest assured, the Montana native’s humble attitude is as real as his lifelong battle with trying to maintain a svelte physique for the purpose of fitting in and of course, health reasons (LOL!). And it’s that humility which makes him the ideal mouthpiece for every young person who has ever been ridiculed or discriminated against for being overweight.
