Comments for All My Friends Are Dead

All My Friends Are Dead: 05/18/12

 cover art (Link goes to Powells)All My Friends Are Dead by Avery Monsen and Jory John has been making the rounds at our local BookCrossing group. It looks like a children's book but it's aimed at adults.

The book starts with a dinosaur lamenting that all his friends are dead. It goes from there. There are things like a milk jug saying that all his friends are expired.

Along with the silly observations on life and death are illustrations reminiscent of Mo Willem's easy chapter books. Although designed for adults, it does appeal to children. Both of mine have read it and laughed at it.

Four stars

It is in its own strange way.
