You can already tell it's going to be cute from the cover alone, but even better than I hoped - simple and to the point rhymes by the alphabet covering all sorts of scenarios where things can go wrong - fast. The rhymes and perils of dooms are joined with illustrated, graphic details of these horr...

Seriously, I don't think this book should be under children's book, because some readers categorized it as a picture book for kids when it is not. The gruesome representation of the apocalypse and other catastrophic events is not suitable for young kids; it will terribly scare them instead. It is...

Oh I love this book!! The illustrations are perfect, the A-Z is one of the best I've read and I definitely need a physical copy of this now!! *Huge thanks to Paul Lewis, Kenneth Kit Lamug, Andrews McMeel Publishing and NetGalley for this copy which I chose to read and all opinions are my own*

Review: A is For Asteroid, Z is for Zombie This is not a children's book. {Shudder} If it doesn't give you nightmares and worries, you must be more jaded than I. This delightfully illustrated (in a horrifying fashion, reminiscent of the late, much-lamented, Charles Addams) compendium of eschatolog...

Now, this is my kind of book! I expect that the level of childlike joy I experienced while reading A is for Asteroids, Z is for Zombies and examining the gory illustrations shows just how much of a sick, sick puppy I am. I inherited my warped sense of humour from my beloved Nan (the coolest person...

Oh, my god. I loved this! A is for Asteroids, Z is for Zombies is absolutely hilarious. By the end of it I was in stitches. (Somewhat disgusted stitches, but stitches nonetheless.) Paul Lewis and Kenneth Kit Lamug have very twisted minds, and it shows through in this delightful picture book. Ther...

I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. If you've read The Gashlycrumb Tinies then you will definitely like this book, although I'm honestly not sure if I would read either of them to actual children. But I guess most of us in my generation grew up read...

Brilliant! Wow what a book! A dark abecedaire (don't know what is the English word for it). Not sure who is the public target by it because it's look like an album for kid, but it's really dark with gore illustrations and all, but for the adult and even older kids (maybe around 10-12 years old) i...

Instead of a good night story, a kid asks his dad about asteroids destroying the planet. Dad remembers a book a crazy relative gave them and checks it out before reading it aloud, a thoroughly smart move. Though it masquerades as a children’s book, don’t you fall for it either. The looks the dad g...

I received a copy of this book via NetGalley. Just because this is a colourful, 40 page ABC picture book do not automatically assume that it is suitable for young kids. In fact it would make a fab gift for anyone who likes slightly dark humour, is interested in climate change and all things apocal...
