Baker & Taylor
Shares the comic observations and childhood witticisms of the author's sons as transcribed and illustrated between 1991 and 2003, in a collection of arguments, songs, complaints, and other exchanges that were transformed into such cartoons as "Interview with a 3-Year-Old Vampire," "I'm Going to Tell God to Kick You," and "How to Annoy Your Brother." Original.


Why do skeletons dance?
Is there a Queen Kong?
Are zombies ever happy?

These are just a few of the many perplexing questions asked, and sometimes answered, in . . . Will and Abe's Guide to the Universe

This is the very latest in the ever-expanding series of mini-jumbo cartoon compendia by that rabbit-drawing rabble-rouser Matt Groening, author of Love Is Hell, Childhood Is Hell, and many, many more hell-bound books.

Unlike other collections gathered from Matt's provocative Life in Hell® comic strip, Will and Abe's Guide to the Universe shows a different side of the politically charged TV-cartoon guy—that of dazed but proud dad. All the words in these comic strips are taken from Matt's feisty and funny sons Will and Abe: their actual conversations, stories, songs, arguments, theories, explanations, excuses, snappy retorts, and flights of fancy.

If you have kids, know kids, have been a kid, or remain a kid at heart, you know that kids say the most hellish things!*

*Any similarity between "hellish" and "darndest," implied or otherwise, is impossible, because darndest isn't really a word, is it?

Contains the following wildness:

  • Will and Abe Discuss Leprechauns
  • Important Questions About Cartooning
  • Abe and Will's Guide to Parents
  • Now That You're Six

And much, much more!
