A bizarrely quirky, morbid, hilarious book. Illustrated simply and creatively in a way that keeps the reader turning the pages and laughing out loud! Definitely a fun read, and one that I will for sure tell others about. Pick it up if you're in for a short, light-hearted read!

Lol but a bit sad

It's a picture book that dances around the subject of death giving it a humorous twist. The book is one where the jokes are so bad they're good! My sister and I laughed so loudly when we read it.

All My Friends Are Dead’s strength is in its main theme. “All my friends are dead” is followed by “All my friends are bread” (a baker), “All my friends are hoaxes” (a yeti) and “All my friends are obsolete” (a cassette tape). It’s this sharing of woe which delivers the humour; misery loves company, after all. And the creative deviations on the theme are what keep the reader going. However, when the book leaves the theme entirely, it loses its charm. For example, after the tree proclaims all his friends are end tables, an end table says, “I was never friends with that guy.” The tree responds, “Dangit.” And while it might be funny in another context, here it halts the established flow. Other attempts at humour intrude as well: on a desert island, one of two lone men announces, “All my friends are Phil! …The only ship we need is a friend-ship, huh, Phil?” Followed by a facepalm by the other man. Rather awkward. All that said, the finish is a perfect contrast: the tree’s monologue is spot-on, as is the woodcutter’s appearance. And flipping to the very last page, past the acknowledgements and author notes, the opening dinosaur makes a re-appearance… however hilariously short-lived.

this was such a cute and funny book! I completely adored it, although it was kind of sad in a weird way and was very short.

I love this book. This book made me laugh and cry at the same time.
