Nice is Overrated.

NASTY ('nas-te) adj. 1. Twisted. 2. Spitefully unfair. 3. Causing dangerous and severe laughter. SYNONYMS: Hilarious. Deliciously fun. Sample usage: "What a nasty, wicked book, filled with mayhem and mischief." "Only nasty criminals would kidnap a cuddly teddy bear!" "Monsters attacking 'cause a kid picks his nose? That's nasty." "A witch on the Internet, a superhero who farts? All nasty too!" ANTONYMS: Nice. Boring. Plain old ordinary.

Why can't really cool parents dump their uncool offspring?
Why can't talented imaginary friends desert their boring creators?
Why can't pop stars be changed... into rodents?

Well, here they can! Barry Yourgrau's NASTYbook is jam-packed with delightful wickedness for the kind of readers who can't get enough of bad endings, rude twists, and assorted nasty mischief... (And don't think we don't know who you are.)

Genre: Children's Fiction
