<b><b><b>Instant <i>New York Times</i> bestseller · </b></b>Hilarious stories and advice about the ups and downs of growing up, from a popular YouTube artist and storyteller.</b><br /><br />Like any shy teen turned young adult, YouTube star James Rallison ("The Odd 1s Out") is used to being on the outside looking in. He wasn't partying in high school or winning football games like his older brother. Instead, he posted comics on the Internet. Now, he's ready to share his hard-earned advice from his 21 years of life in the funny, relatable voice his fans love. <br /><br />In this illustrated collection, Rallison tells his own stories of growing up as the "odd one out": in art class with his twin sister (she was more talented), in the middle school locker room, and up to one strange year of college (he dropped out). Each story is filled with the little lessons he picked up along the way, serious and otherwise, like: <br /><br />  <b>*</b>  How to be cool (in seventh grade)<br />  <b>*</b>  Why it's OK to be second-best at something, and<br />  <b>*</b>  How to survive your first, confidence-killing job interviews <br /><br />Filled with fan-favorite comics and never-before-seen material, this tongue-in-cheek take on some of the weirdest, funniest parts of life is perfect for both avid followers and new converts.

FROM THE PUBLISHER:<BR>Every time Allie Brosh posts something new on her hugely popular blog Hyperbole and a Half the internet rejoices.<BR> <BR>Touching, absurd, and darkly comic, Allie Brosh’s highly anticipated book <I>Hyperbole and a Half </I>showcases her unique voice, leaping wit, and her ability to capture complex emotions with deceptively simple illustrations.<BR> <BR>This full-color, beautifully illustrated edition features more than fifty percent new content, with ten never-before-seen essays and one wholly revised and expanded piece as well as classics from the website like, “The God of Cake,” “Dogs Don’t Understand Basic Concepts Like Moving,” and her astonishing, “Adventures in Depression,” and “Depression Part Two,” which have been hailed as some of the most insightful meditations on the disease ever written.<BR> <BR>Brosh’s debut marks the launch of a major new American humorist who will surely make even the biggest scrooge or snob laugh. We dare you not to.<BR> <BR>FROM THE AUTHOR:<BR>This is a book I wrote. Because I wrote it, I had to figure out what to put on the back cover to explain what it is. I tried to write a long, third-person summary that would imply how great the book is and also sound vaguely authoritative—like maybe someone who isn’t me wrote it—but I soon discovered that I’m not sneaky enough to pull it off convincingly. So I decided to just make a list of things that are in the book:<BR><BR>Pictures<BR>Words<BR>Stories about things that happened to me<BR>Stories about things that happened to other people because of me<BR>Eight billion dollars*<BR>Stories about dogs<BR>The secret to eternal happiness*<BR><BR>*These are lies. Perhaps I have underestimated my sneakiness!

<DIV><P>Now available for the first time as an e-book!<BR /><BR /><I>Homicidal Psycho Jungle Cat</I> chronicles another segment of the multifarious adventures of this wild child and his faithful, but skeptical, friend. If the best cartoons compel readers to identify themselves within the funny frames, then all who enjoy <I>Calvin and Hobbes</I> are creative, imaginative, and ... bad, bad, bad! Calvin, the irascible little boy with the stuffed tiger who comes to life are a pair bound for trouble. Boring school lessons become occasions for death-defying alien air battles, speeding snow sled descents elicit philosophical discussions on the meaning of life, and Hobbe's natural inclination to pounce on his little friend wreaks havoc on Calvin's sense of security. Calvin's the kid we all wish we'd been. Sassy, imaginative, far more verbal than his parents can manage, Calvin is the quintessential bad boy -- and the boy we love to see. He terrorizes little Susie, offers "Candid Opinions" from a neighborhood stand, and questions his parents' authority. "What assurance do I have that your parenting isn't screwing me up?" he demands. <I>Calvin and Hobbes</I> manages to say what needs to be said about childhood and life: "Eww, mud," says Calvin. "Look at this gooshy, dirty, slimy, thick, wet mud ... Bleecch ... Talk about a kid magnet!"</P></DIV>

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), <em>All My Friends Are Dead</em> presents a delightful primer for laughing at the inevitable. Plus, this is a fixed-format version of the book, which looks nearly identical to the print version.
