All My Friends Are Dead

I first read about All My Friends Are Dead over on PopCandy, and I think it would be the perfect addition to my coffee table. Whitney at PopCandy calls it “a coffee table book for people who hate coffee table books. Or don’t own coffee tables.” It also seems like a children’s picture book for adults that like their humor morbid and dark. Take a look at the first few pages at and you’ll see what I mean. The book trailer also made me laugh, so check it out below.

Summary of All My Friends Are Dead by Avery Monson and Jory John:

If you’re a dinosaur, all of your friends are dead. If you’re a pirate, all of your friends have scurvy. If you’re a tree, all of your friends are end tables. Each page of this laugh-out-loud illustrated humor book showcases the downside of being everything from a clown to a cassette tape to a zombie. Cute and dark all at once, this hilarious children’s book for adults teaches valuable lessons about life while exploring each cartoon character’s unique grievance and wide-eyed predicament. From the sock whose only friends have gone missing to the houseplant whose friends are being slowly killed by irresponsible plant owners (like you), All My Friends Are Dead presents a delightful primer for laughing at the inevitable.
