Review

"Very funny and witty, with a dark nod, wink and a smile throughout."
- The Penguin Post

"A fun and breezy read. Anie channels The Far Side with great success and maintains an acidic, devious tone throughout the entire book." -- Ain'tItCool.com

More About the Author

When she is not writing books about mischievous animals, Elia is working as an illustrator. She has just completed EVIL PENGUINS 2: Armageddon. Elia is also the author of Evil Penguins: When Cute Penguins Go Bad, Evil Cats: When Fluffy Cats Get Mean, and The Velveteen Killer Rabbit, a parody.

Elia spends her free time pondering on things, and talking to wildlife and objects. Contrary to speculation, she does not live with a penguin. She speaks gibberish fluently.

I had a pet penguin which I smuggled out of the zoo and yes, they are evil birds. Apparently they were made flightless so that their evil may be contained to where no man lives. There was an annoying neighbor who kept coming by to have me open her jar of pickles. The penguin suggests to me that we do away with this pesky neighbor. Being a good humanitarian, I refused to go along. Strangely, the neighbor stopped coming by, and that's when I noticed a strange mound in my backyard. We need to spread the word about these birds of evil.

I bought this for a friend's birthday & as we went through the book yesterday, we laughed so hard that I have been sore all today. It is even funnier when you go through it with someone who also has an evil sense of humor. I will send this out from Amazon to others who have a good evil sense of humor on their birthdays. I'm in so much pain....I can hardly move & I certainly won't laugh, it hurts. Amazon reviews are the BEST!!!

A devilishly funny book about penguins causing all sorts of mischief. I'm a big fan of The Far Side and The Family Guy and this book just hits the spot. If you're looking for some good animal humor, you won't be disappointed. By the end of the book, the penguins with the 'evil' eyes stick with you and keep you chuckling. Penguins clubbing a seal pup...

Format: Paperback
*I received this book through a giveaway at [..]

These penguins live up to their title, they're evil, really evil. From giving Sponge Bob swirlies to invading China and doing very naughty things with razor wire it seems penguins are responsible for every pop culture, historical and religious evil known to man.

There's very little reading to do in this book, but there will be a lot of laughing. It's short, the humor is almost universal and the message is easy to understand. Evil Penguins isn't the kind of book most people (other than dark humor or penguin fans) would ask for, but it's perfect for those pesky uncomfortable gift giving situations. Secret Santas, gift exchanges with co-workers you barely know or present games at baby showers or holiday parties. The chances of a recipient not finding something inside these pages hilarious is pretty slim, and it's likely that said person would be impossible to satisfy anyway.

My daughter thinks it is extremely funny. She has a bit of an odd sense of humor.

So I purchased the bunny suicide book and this book showed up on the bottom. Being that I loved the bunny book, I decided to get this one too. I ordered both at the same time, and I received this book about an entire week after the bunny book.

After reading through (or looking at the pictures...whatever you want to call it) I was disappointed with it. It really is not creative or funny. Sure, there's a couple that I enjoyed...but overall,I would not recommend this book.

I bought this book as a gift for my sister who was going through chemotherapy treatment for cancer. She loves penguins and I thought it would cheer her up as she was waiting during her treatments. She loved it. Very funny. Had tears coming from my eyes when I read them.

These are mostly the mean kind of comics, not the funny kind of comics. I didn't like it nearly as well as I thought I would. Other people will probably like it for exactly the reason that I didn't like it.
