It's a short, hilarious read and one you want to make all your friends read while they still can!
But I have to address some of the complainers here:
- NO, "You could (NOT!) have written it"
The simple verse and equally simple drawings all create perfectly timed, paused and executed jokes.
- NO, "the preview is (NOT!) the best part"
I tell everyone to fight the urge to skip around the pages. Because it all builds up to a hilarious end of a running gag.
- NO, "it is (NOT!) a waste of money"
It is something to be shared with everyone you know, and is worth many times the price for all the laughs it gets!
- NO, it is NOT for everyone.
If you "floated it around to friends and family who also did not like it" - you consistently hang with people without much of a sense of (dark) humor!
What this book is, is a short, funny, dark look at how death can come to everyone and everything...even the inanimate. Each page features a different character with a short statement about how death has impacted them, including a sock bemoaning its missing mate and a plant asking you to stop buying its friends if you're just going to kill it. Its a quick read, but it will have you laughing quickly and cheer you up on those days that you're feeling down.
It's a simple premise, many different people/things coming to the realization that they are obsolete. Thus the Dinosaur realizes that all of his friends are dead. The authors are quite clever and play on the assumptions, stereotypes and quirks of all sorts of types of people, animals and objects. It is a joke that builds with each page.
This is a cute little book, aimed at adults old enough to "get it". Some reviews gave it low stars due to "it's not funny". As many people will realize, not everyone will agree as to what is funny... or Good for that matter... look at the cover, what in the world did these people expect?
Some people also pointed out the price tag, which for someone who's been around books their whole life, the price was reasonable for a book like this, as printing has become increasingly more expensive over the years.
It's a children's book after all, and parents know that this type of literature tends to be a very quick read and sometimes pricy... if ten bucks is gonna break you, then you shouldn't be buying books in the first place, try going to the library where they are free.
This book is droll humor presented in brief sentences with crude, simplistic drawings; a 5-minute must read that will keep you in stitches from page one. I loved it!
Caution: This is not the kind of book to buy for your next baby shower gift! The audience is definitely adults, especially those with a strangely developed, dark sense of humor.
This little book is sure to create laughs and conversation at your next get together.
If this is your kind of book, you might also enjoy "The Tribune Primer" by Eugene Field.

The book is short and clever. These are my two favorite qualities. I don't recommend the sequel. It is short, clever, and just a bit raunchy--not my cup of tea. Read morePublished 11 days ago by Jordan
