"This collection of cheeky behavior and bad ideas from acclaimed
artist and illustrator Brian Rea will make you cringe, snicker, and
compulsively turn the page for more. Rea's simple yet poignant
scenes depict a version of life so close to our everyday that it's
best to laugh so you don't cry. Avoid This is made for lovers of
black humor, yet the handsome textured hardcover gives only a hint
of the dark fancies within."
