All My Friends Are Dead
If you're a dinosaur, all of your friends are dead. If you're a pirate, all of your friends have scurvy. If you're a tree, all of your friends are end tables. Each page of this laugh-out-loud illustrated humor book showcases the downside of being everything from a clown to a cassette tape to a zombie. Cute and dark all at once, this hilarious children's-book-for-adults teaches valuable lessons about life while exploring each cartoon character's unique grievance and wide-eyed predicament. Have you ever laughed and cried at the same time? Because All My Friends Are Dead is either the saddest funny book of funniest sad book you've ever read. From the sock whose only friends have gone missing to the houseplant whose friends are being slowly killed by irresponsible plant-owners (like you), All My Friends Are Dead presents a delightful primer for laughing at the inevitable.
