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 other titles are Zombies Have Issues, Sock Monkeys Have Issues, Ninjas Have Issues, and the forthcoming Garden Gnomes Have Issues.

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

This is a book of landscape painting with simple subject matter and captions. I was attracted to the distinct style of the author/artist's work and I liked the vivid colors. The book is a neat (approx 5 1/4" x 7 1/4") collection of images that tell the story of zombie non-preference.

This is an accessible book and a quick read. I brought it in to work and nearly everyone who passes by my cube flips through it. It's an attention getter, conversation starter, and a serious study of the undead. Ok, a fun study of the undead. And a good price. [Aaaaand Greg was nice when I met him at the Newport Folk Fest. Thanks dude!]
