I am short for words for this one, especially without spoiling anything. The author is quite correct in stating this is NOT for children. While the black/white cover may look like a creepy kids book, and the other look all 'sunshine and rainbows,' they are not. This is a three part story. The first part is relatively light-hearted,the second part creepier and the third....well read for yourself. I highly advise watching where you leave this book lying around if you have young children. Seriously. They can probably read the first part, maybe the second but I advise against the third part.What I will say is fans of Calvin and Hobbs, Charlie the Unicorn, South Park and Robot Chicken will likely enjoy this. When I finished reading this (not paying any attention to other reviews) I just sat there, shocked a bit, then I went through the book again to look for hints. It was worth the second look through. But read it normally once, for full effects then go back and pay attention to the pictures. Have fun!
