All My Friends Are Dead
by Avery Monsen & Jory John
Chronicle Books, 2010

A popular gift book from last year which is the sort of thing you give to people who don’t have time to read books. You know the sort of thing, the entire text could fit on a single page and it takes two minutes to read. The first ten pages were a Tumblr hit, of course.

It’s quite droll, but a good example of a Great Tosson, defined in The Meaning of Liff as “A fat book containing four words and six cartoons which costs £12.95.” If it were five times longer, it would actually be something. Chronicle have published some great art books in the past, but I suppose they have to make money somehow.
