Let’s be clear… these books are fun and sometimes creepy. (except for Stories for Peace, which is awesome in a different direction.) If you’re a parent, buy a book for yourself, because they’re really written for anybody who enjoys a good laugh and a good scare. (or wants to learn about peace…)

Epic humor, horror and pungent stanks…
