Description
With the improbably long title Noisy Outlaws, Unfriendly Blobs, and Some Other Things That Aren't as Scary, Maybe, Depending on How You Feel About Lost Lands, Stray Cellphones, Creatures from the Sky, Parents Who Disappear in Peru, a Man Named Lars Farf, and One Other Story We Couldn't Quite Finish, So Maybe You Could Help Us Out, this book turns out to be a collection of surprisingly satisfying tales for wise young people (9 to 12) and immature grownups (you know who you are). Nick Hornby, Jon Scieszka, Neil Gaiman, Jonathan Safran Foer, and other writers for children and adults provide the 11 stories, each with color illustrations by artists like Barry Blitt, Marcel Dzama, and Lane Smith. The unfinished story, by Lemony Snicket, is written inside the dust jacket.

"This is a charming, funny anthology from little-indie-engine-that-could. McSweeney's boasts an all-star list of contributors from both adult books and children's literature. The collection begins with a hilarious introduction by noted misanthrope Lemony Snicket, who parodies various kid-lit genres (a talking paperweight, a long-division worm who makes math fun, etc.).... Kelly Link tells the story of a boy who encounters a thoughtful, verbose monster on a summer camp overnight. And Nick Hornby proves his versatility with a quirky tale about a young resident of the world's smallest nation.... Rarely does an anthology contain so much good stuff from big names, and whether they are drawn to the book by Jeanne DuPrau or Jon Sciezka or Snicket, middle-grade readers will likely emerge from this with new favorite authors."Booklist
