This morbidly delightful picture book is fun for all ages. Although it was published several years back, I only recently discovered its curious allure. This is a great read for parents as much as it is for children – but probably more so for the parents. Some have likened the book to “an adult book disguised as a children’s book”. I found it perfectly acceptable for my five year old who giggled along with me. Kindle Edition | Chronicle Books | 2011
Throughout this picture book, we meet a bunch of sad characters. You’re not sure if you want to laugh or cry.
We get the lonely last members of a certain society, and those who are doomed from the get-go.
Maybe even a villain or two.
Completely hilarious and downright silly, this was five minutes well spent.
