At first glance this might seem like a children's picture book. Make no mistake, it is not. This contains foul language, violence and uncouth characters. However, the illustrations are warm, gorgeous and even cute. The story, though gritty, contains heart and a philosophical guide to life.

I would describe this as a children's book, except for the frequent hate-filled language. Good illustrations, though.

I love this book. It's endearing and simple, but it's also hilarious in the most unexpected places.

This is listed in Adult Fiction for a reason! Not a children's book. This is basically an existential story disguised as comic. There is not much profanity, but when there is, it's bad. Really bad (think of the worst way to say "homosexual" and "prostitute".) Your children will cry if you read this to them.
