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.

More About the Author

Greg Stones is an artist and author who lives and works in Rhode Island. In 2013, the Young Adult Library Services Association recommended his book Zombies Hate Stuff for reluctant readers, and his follow-up book, Penguins Hate Stuff, has angered penguins everywhere for not consulting them about what they actually hate. (Little known fact: penguins are jerks.) His latest book, Zombies Have Issues, just hit bookstores, and his next, Sock Monkeys Have Issues, will be available in 2015.

Zombies Hate Stuff is a fun book that I find myself just flipping through on my Kindle Fire for some good chuckles.

This book is a real treat...a fan of Greg's artwork, I saw this book at one of his shows and purchased it immediately for a friend. I really need to buy another for myself! It's silly, funny, wacky and for those of us who are zombie fans--a must have! I agree with the other reviewers who said "buy two" because you'll definitely want one for yourself and one (or more) as the most awesome gift ever!

it was hilarious, but it was basically just a picture book. i thought there'd be a little more to a story or something. Still awesome though

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!

This book was pretty funny. It's different and the illustrations are quite good. I did laugh at most of it and would recommend it.

More than a little disappointed with this-more of a picture with very skimpy captions...boo to the non story of what a zombie does not like
