I thought the start was slow and boring in an old-fashioned way ; ) I didn’t really start laughing at the sick humor until the kids pretended to be a lamp, fur rug, and other items in the house to scare people away from buying it. I thought the parents wearing crampons on their heads was pretty funny along with the glossary. For instance: UNKEMPT means untidy and messy. My dictionary says it can also mean disorderly, but I know that a person can be arrested for being “drunk and disorderly” and I don’t think someone can be arrested for being unkempt. Also, I don’t think there is a word kempt – so what is that “un” all about ? Beats me.
See what I mean about adult humor? Read this book to judge it for yourself. It is quite original.
