Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Hello.  I am the guy who wrote and illustrated Zombies Hate Stuff.  And when I say "wrote," I mean that I avoided using any actual sentences and stretched 80 individual words into a 64 page book.  Perhaps it is also worth mentioning that my editor thought of four of those words.  So, let's do the math: Between 2008 and 2011, I wrote 76 words.  The chances of my winning a Pulitzer Prize this year are fairly slim.

On the bright side, I also painted 56 watercolor illustrations to accompany the text, and since a picture is worth, like, six BILLION words, you are probably now regretting the fact that you inwardly mocked my intellectual capacity while reading the preceding paragraph.

By now you are surely asking, "Greg Stones, how do you know so much about zombies?  How do you know what they hate?  And why do you smell of urine?" 

First of all, leave my bed-wetting out of this.  Secondly, I have no idea what zombies actually hate, partially because they don't exist, but mostly because research makes me sleepy.

My history with the undead boils down to this: I saw Night of the Living Dead for the first time in 2004 and thought it was really cool, so I started adding zombies to my paintings.  Not gross, rotting ghouls like you see these days, but classy zombies who understand the importance of a good suit and tie.  (The small amount of research that I did do showed that nine out of ten victims prefer being eaten by a professional living corpse who looks the part, versus some slacker zombie who thinks that it is actually okay to wear pajama pants in public.)  Getting back to my incredibly enthralling artistic evolution: first I painted lone zombies wandering through pretty landscapes, then I unleashed the walking dead on a series of unsuspecting penguins, and finally I turned the ghouls against the entire world in a series of pieces entitled "Zombies Hate..." whatever.  Eventually it occurred to me to organize all these random zombie hatreds into a book. 

More imagined questions from my audience:

Will this book help us survive a zombie apocalypse?

Yes, obviously.  If you know that zombies hate clowns, you will not become a clown, with the added bonus that there will be one less clown in the world.  Based on this fact alone, Zombies Hate Stuff  benefits the entire planet.

Should this book become a huge success, how soon will you begin to display diva-like behavior?

Next Thursday.

And so concludes my first stab at writing about myself on an Amazon product description.  Either my editor at Chronicle will read this and think "Wow!  What a writer!  Let's have him create ten more books for us!" or "Wow...I can't believe we published one of his books..."

Let's keep our fingers crossed, because a book about a bed-wetting zombie clown who hates penguins sounds like publishing gold to me.

Thank you for your time.

Great little coffee table book. I think it's hilarious. It's mostly appropriate for younger kids. There's one page where Zombies hate "disrespect," and it has Dracula giving the middle finger and other monsters mooning the zombie, and another where they hate "nudity," and it has a naked man and woman running away (the woman is covering herself, and you don't see anything). I'm not a prude, but they could have taken those two pages out and made it appropriate for my 4 year old.

I'm nit picking at this point...I still think it's a five star book, but want parents to know if there is anything objectionable in it. Whether or not you find it objectionable is up to you (and for what age you find it appropriate). Great little book for the price.

I got this as a gift for a zombie loving friend and he LOVED it! It's a lot smaller book than I had imagined but is very cute and will make you laugh. The art in it is very nice. It's a good quick read lol. I've been thinking i'm probably going to buy myself one as well and maybe a couple more for other zombie nuts on my list :) This book is very cute and won't take up a lot of room on you'r bookshelf ;)

I am a big zombie fan, from the books to the movies and TV shows. My wife purchased this book for me for the holidays. It is both cute and funny, not normally traits you'd associate with zombies. :-) My kids got a big laugh from the book, and I have left it out as a coffee table book.

I am a big fan of Greg Stone's work and this book is another great example of his humor. The illustrations are each beautiful little works of art that tell a funny and surprising story. He has the rare ability to be funny, edgy, and strange without being overtly kitschy or overly gross. Highly recommended and can't wait for the next installment!

Greg Stone's is a New England watercolor artist, specializing in Penguins! He generally has penguins meeting their demise by assorted robots, vampires, zombies and monsters, all with a wonderful sense of humor and no gore. My girls and I fell in love with his works at a Providence Arts Festival, and have since purchased each of his books. I'm anxiously awaiting his newest title, Penguins Hate Stuff. My girls were 5 & 7 at the time, and they seemed to grasp the humor of a safe falling on a penguin in the middle of the Artic, and still enjoy flipping through the books randomly for a smile. I highly encourage anyone with an appreciation for creative/non-sequiter humor to give Greg a try. You will likely be buying all of his books before you know it.

This books is great! I bought it for my zombie loving boyfriend and he loved it! He now uses the catchphrase "Zombies don't like....." all the time. For instance "Zombies don't like when you throw things at your boyfriend" or "Zombies don't like when you call me names and tell me I don't read well" or "Zombies like when you kiss me there"

Yeah, you get the point.

The illustrations are awesome. The humor is perfect. Love it!

You won't find that zombies love brains in this book. But that's what my 5 year old son thinks should be in this book. He loves this book and has read it about 5 times so far! (we just got the book last night) and he tells me every time that the zombies should love braaaaains!

This fun picture book is enjoyable for the whole family. The simple, yet colorful pictures are what make this book. You will find out what zombies, hate, don't mind, really hate, and love! (I'll give you a hint: It's not brains!) It's just a quirky, fun book.

There is one picture that may be objectionable to some (a vampire is flipping the bird and some other monsters are mooning the zombie) but, other than that, this book is fun and is one of the most unique entries into the zombie craze that seems to have taken over my house (and the rest of the country)

This is a great little book filled with lots of laughs! I consider myself a zombie connoisseur, and learned alot about the undead from this book. The illustrations are absolutely wonderful. It's such a great book that the library where I work purchased a copy for our collection!
