When everything is easily crushable under well-meaning feet, how can a Humongo ever fit in in such a little world?
From the creator of Night of the Living Dead and the zombie movement that permeates our culture today, comes a sarcastic and cynical children’s tale of different creatures trying to coexist in a benign, yet power-hungry environment. In line with Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s Little Prince, The Little World of Humongo Bongo is a beautiful metaphor on the evolution of our civilization, depicted with humour and simplicity.
Featuring illustrations by Romero himself, welcome to a zany little world captured by the lens of one of the world’s visionary film creators.
| Foreword by Tony Timpone. |
Praise for George A. Romero
“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 this book. 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
