Everybody Dies is YouTube sensation Ken Tanaka’s children’s book for grown-ups—a macabre and darkly humorous look at mortality in the vein of the classic Japanese children’s book Everybody Poops, All My Friends Are Dead, and the mega-bestseller Go the F**k to Sleep.

In Everybody Dies, Internet icon Ken Tanaka explores the myriad ways in which we all can meet our fate. Echoing the grim fun of Edward Gorey’s beloved Gashlycrumb Tinies, he tells his simply illustrated story in 48 pages of saturated, full-color pictures featuring chunky letters and warm colors, and frank, pointedly sardonic commentary. From a surfing tragedy to being devoured by wild animals, the pestilence of war, and demise by convenience machine, he helps us face the stark reality of “the end” with dark humor and irreverent wit.

Unveiling the truth about living and dying, Tanaka offers cute drawings and little games that take some of the sting and scariness out of mortality, and help us accept the reality that death is a part of life.
