Avery Monsen and Jory John, co-authors of the darkly funny animated stories All my friends are dead. and All my friends are still dead., have done it again. Their latest book, K is for Knifeball: An Alphabet of Terrible Advice, has managed to capture the hilarious essence that made their debut novels so successful.
Here is an apt synopsis of the book directly from Amazon.com:
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 humor may be terrible for actual children, but it’s perfect for the common-senseless child in all adults.
Aside from the book itself, the best part about its release is the promo trailer. If you have kids but don’t like them very much, teach them how to play Knifeball!
