I think that this might be an interesting read to 20-somethings that really dislike the pop culture aspects of Twilight and who somehow read Diary of a Wimpy Kid and were equally turned off by that series. Unfortunately, I think that there are a lot of parents like myself who simply purchased it because their kid was really into Diary of a Wimpy Kid and their child is hungry to read another book. My advice: DON'T DO IT! You may scar your child and damage their interest in reading.
As a teenager "Diary of A Wimpy Kid" no longer peaked his interest.
I purchased "Diary of a Stinky Dead Kid" and he found the book to be hilarious!
**I noticed that there were several negative reviews.
Parents should thoroughly read the description and use the "look inside option" before making a purchase.**
It was very obvious that this book was not for children and was in no way related to the "Diary of A Wimpy Kid" series.
The book contains three stories: 'Diary of a Stinky Dead Kid' by Stefan Petrucha and Rick Parker - as honest a survey of the undead as is available anywhere! - in two parts, 'DieLite' by Stefan Petrucha, Maia Kinney-Petrucha and Miran Kim, a sicko love story about a vampire and maiden he desires, and 'Carrier' by John L. Lansdale, James Romberger and Marguerite Van Cook, a man builds a vault in his house in which he can transform into a werewolf etc. The art work is exceptional, with each story bearing its own trademark of imagery form drawings on lined paper (for 'Diary') to finessed realism in 'DieLite' to traditional comic book style for 'Carrier'. At the end of the book is a fine explanation of how Papercutz arrived at the concept of Parody based on the famous Tales from the Crypt series. There is considerable artistic energy in this little volume and a promise that this company will continue to produce successful art forms equal to this fine little volume (this being volume #8).
