Why can’t really cool parents dump their uncool offspring?
Why can’t talented imaginary friends desert their boring creators?
Why can’t pop stars be changed... into rodents?

Well, here they can! Barry Yourgrau’s NASTYbook is jam-packed with delightful wickedness for the kind of readers who can’t get enough of bad endings, rude twists, and assorted nasty mischief... (And don’t think we don’t know who you are.)

Annotation:
A collection of several surreal, funny, disturbing short stories and tales covers just about every imaginable childhood fear and fantasy, from perfect parents giving away unappealing kids to a superhero who fights evil with vile farts. In "My Friend Bill," an unpopular boy conjures up an imaginary bear to bolster his self esteem, but Bill the bear begins to loathe the boy. A monster masquerading as exchange student, a killer pet, and a delivery boy transformed into a vampire are just a few of the characters populating this creepy compendium. With only grubby fingerprints for art, the book is printed upside down for added oddity.
