about

From the authors of the breakout bestseller All my friends are dead. (more than 175,000 copies sold) and in the humorous vein of Go the F**k to Sleep comes a laugh-out-loud collection of bad advice that turns the children's alphabet book on its head. Adorable illustrated characters lead readers down a path of poor decision-making, and alphabetical, rhyming couplets offer terrible life lessons in which O is for opening things with your teeth, F is for setting Daddy's wallet on fire, and R is for Raccoon (but definitely not for rabies). With plenty of playfully disastrous choices lurking around every corner, this compendium of black humormay be terrible for actual children, but it's perfect for the common-senseless child in all adults.
Avery Monsen is a New York-based artist and writer. He is the co-author of All my friends are dead. and All my friends are still dead. Jory John is a California-based writer, editor, and cartoonist. He is the co-author of All my friends are dead. and All my friends are still dead.
