All My Friends Are Dead

All My Friends Are DeadAll My Friends Are Dead by Avery Monsen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My daughter asked for this for her 21st birthday. Of course, I peeked . . . okay, I'm lying, I read the entire thing in about 10 minutes. This is, in essence, a book for existential children . . . or child existentialists . . . or cynical adults who don't like to read but like grim humor in the form of a children's book. If Sartre had had children (did he? I don't know, but I suspect not), he would have read this to them at bedtime every night. Because any night could be your last . . .

PS: I liked the glue entry the best. Yes, there's really a glue entry . . . and it's funny . . . and morbid . . . just go read it!

  1. I love this book! When I first saw it at Target I bought all four copies they had and gave three as gifts. This is one of the few books that is staying in my permanent collection.

    1. Glad you enjoyed it! It was a pleasant surprise for me!
