Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ever tasted a NuttiNutz candy bar?

Has your Mom been kidnapped recently?

Know what a Samurai Swordboy is?

Are you afraid of terrible curses?

Or goblins?

Or Toy Poodles?

How 'bout (gulp) older sisters??

Do fake false teeth ever talk to you?

Hey, then you better read this book... but Be Warned, friend... It's not like anything you've ever read... unless you're completely demented! (Are you?)

Review:

"With a humor that reminds one of Lemony Snicket, Barry Yourgrau takes readers along for a lively journey through the imagination." Children's Literature

Review:

"At several points the text morphs into manga, and a few of Rollo's fights are violent. Smudges, fingerprints, and page and chapter numbers that change direction or include additional messages appear throughout." School Library Journal

About the Author

Writer/performer Barry Yourgrau has been making people laugh their heads off — or gasp in astonishment — with such books as Wearing Dad's Head and A Man Jumps Out of An Airplane. He's startled everyone with his appearances on MTV and National Public Radio. He even starred in a movie based on his writings, and in a music video too. He teased the world with his first book for kids, My Curious Uncle Dudley. Barry woke up one day in the US as a kid. Now Barry's ready to unleash the hysterically dark fun and games from the deepest dark of his soul. "With my NASTYbook," grins Barry, nastily, "I invite you to share in those cruel, twisted and shockingly mischeivous delights I know you secretly adore — if you dare!" He got there all the way from South Africa, he claims... Or is this just another of his jokes?

Having had the chance to see Barry on a couple of his book tours and readings at Powells on Burnside, it's hard to read his stories and not hear him reading aloud in your head... his characters are unforgettable, and for once everyone pretty much gets what's coming to them in the end (some of them in the beginning!).
Barry Yourgrau has a wonderful imagination... his stories can be enjoyed by adults and children, read silently to yourself or read aloud to a group. I remember many college parties where I'd read alound one of the short stories from "wearing dad's head". My favorite is still the story where the drunken men play strip poker with a cow... one by one they run shrieking from the party - their lips smeared with milk.
Nastybook is written as a children's story, fairytales of sorts with not so happy endings. Everyone should have at least one copy on their shelf! Also good for gift giving!!
