Mom, Will this Chicken Give Me Man Boobs? My Confused, Guilt-Ridden, and Stressful Struggle to Raise a Green Family

“Harding’s sense of humor and keenly observed account of social mores in the new ecology will keep modern parents, especially those with opinions on the green movement, tickled throughout.”

—Publishers Weekly, Starred Review, Mar 23, 2009

“Robyn Harding’s book is a hilarious journey through the trials and tribulations of going green in a modern world. The book touches on everything from litter-less lunches to worries over fostering eco-anxiety in children, plus a health dose of Harding’s own anxiety over whether she is green enough to fit into her super-environmentally aware neighbourhood…”


“If you’re trying to go green, or have already gotten there, I guarantee that you’ll find this book a very good, funny, educational and easy read. You’ll be able to relate to it in many ways.”

—Canadian Living, Feb 25, 2009

“Mom, Will This Chicken Give Me Man Boobs? follows the brave eco-mom and her family as they struggle to achieve a deeper shade of green from an honourable pale mint beginning. …This book welcomes a wide audience, not just mothers whose sons worry about man boobs. It is clever, alarmingly funny and informative in a way that will, I hope, make readers green with envy.”

—Vancouver Sun, Mar 6, 2009

“Harding is no stranger to confessional humour, and uses it to full effect when chronicling her earnest… efforts to green her extended family. Refreshingly funny, disarmingly honest, and mercifully free of apocalyptic horrors, Harding’s tale will resonate with those who feel unequal to the task of buying organic milk, let along saving the planet.”

—Quill & Quire, Mar 24, 2009

“…an informative, spirited account of an increasingly dispiriting subject: going green. …Despite her lapses and concessions to comfort, Harding is to be commended for her efforts. Researching each issue, she considers all the ambiguities and the truths before judiciously and responsibly setting on her own compromises. Few of us can do more. And for those of us who have also fallen short of the ideal, this book is both reassuring and empowering.”

—Globe and Mail, Apr 2, 2009

“A hilarious account of trying and sometimes succeeding to build a green ethic and raise an environmentally conscious family without losing her sanity of cleaning out her bank account.”

—The Province, Apr 7, 2009

“The title of this book may not be a familiar refrain in your house, but the struggles it chronicles will be. A humour-filled, stream-of-consciousness account of Harding’s efforts to become ‘a deep-dark-green goddess,’ it both delights and occasionally grates. The latter is where the book’s real value lies. As Harding confronts her own values, habits and ideas, we’re forced to look uncomfortably at our own.”

—Green Living Magazine, Apr 21, 2009

“Robyn Harding didn’t know what she was getting into when she launched her family on a go-green project. …What ensued is revealed in this hilarious and candid book. …Harding’s personal angst is certainly the focus of this book, but somehow her wit and honesty shine brighter than her groans, making this a highly entertaining and delightfully engrossing read.”
