Overview

Stories Guaranteed to Make You Sick by Daniel Berenson, Maureen Dunlap

An important warning for all potential readers:

IT'S GONNA TAKE A LOT OF GUTS TO READ THIS BOOK!!

Why?

Because you're going to lose most of those guts from: 1) laughing, 2) hurling, or 3) freaking out once you see what we have in store for you, that's why.

***Lissen up! Don't matter who you are. You gonna get hosed by this book, hoss!

SO WHO IS THE INTENDED AUDIENCE FOR THIS BOOK ANYWAY?

Oh, we see hands going up all over the place. Some of you seem very sure.

----"It's a short story collection for children," one of you calls out.

----"Aw, gimme a break," another of you wisecracks. "Parents wouldn't let their babies read this junk. It's a bunch of stories this guy thinks are funny and he's aiming them at older kids, like middle schoolers. He thinks he's the new Wimpy Kid."

----"Yeah, it's like that gross book for boys," another of you blurts out. "I forget the name of it."

Very good. Those are some very fine answers, people. But what you don't see is that this book goes beyond all that. It's true that most of the stories are indeed humorous but we also offer you a mystery that shoots you into a zombie horror hell and another adventure that takes you on a tour through the slimy insides of a teenager's nasal passages.

"SAY WHAT??" you all gurgitate in unison.

You heard us right. You think a regular kid can handle that? No way! You cray! You need to be a teenager or adult to buck the brain grenades we lob at you in this vomity volume. And we know from experience that some parents -- the cool ones, anyway -- will get a kick (in the pants) from these tantalizing tales.

So you see, STORIES GUARANTEED TO MAKE YOU SICK will appeal to a W--I--D--E range of readers. Think of these poetic pearls as the literary equivalent of "Family Guy" or "South Park" or "The Simpsons."

So pop this bad boy into your e-reader, get all cozy, and prepare to enter an alternate universe. Welcome, friends, to the awesome world of Freaky Dude Books (www.freakydudebooks.com)

About the Author

Daniel Berenson is a long time educator in North Carolina, primarily in the middle grades. He also spent a year teaching in England as a Fulbright Exchange Teacher. He writes novels, short stories, poetry, and joke books for kids. He partners with Maureen Dunlap, both in his career - he writes, she illustrates and designs the Freaky Dude Books website - and in life. He believes they are perhaps the only author/illustrator dance couple around and they soon will have West Coast Swing videos up on YouTube to show off their (let's face it, intermediate level at best) dancing chops. And as 2013 comes upon us, Daniel is releasing three new books: FIREBUG (a literary novel for kids) and two MOOSE JOKE BOOKS. (Yes, they're the first MOOSE JOKE BOOKS ever in history!) More titles will be coming in mid-2013. Welcome to FREAKY DUDE BOOKS: READING ON THE EDGE.
