“What’s this? The late George A. Romero, director of the classic horror film Night of the Living Dead, wrote a children’s book? Yes, he did, and it’s every bit as eccentric as you might imagine. . . . Call it a fable or a parable or an allegory, Romero’s simple-seeming story is rife with subtexts dealing with such real-world problems as overpopulation, territorial imperative, intolerance, and more. Share it with the kids for its story, but enjoy it yourself for its broader meanings.”

“Loved [The Little World of Humongo Bongo]. Zany fun. But since it’s George Romero, there’s a touch of evil behind it all!”
—R.L. Stine, author of Goosebumps and Fear Street
