Every day we get books into the bookstore. Most of the time they are just your standard novel or a history book that I barely look at long enough to price. Once in a while though, a book will come through that door that catches my attention. Today was one of those days. As you may have guessed I am a huge fan of dark humor. I find most people take themselves way too seriously and need to lighten up a bit. This particular book was written by a man named Jim Benton. I know about this author mainly because Scary Daughter loves his Franny K. Stein books.¬†They are written for kids, but they are wickedly funny. He’s also the creator behind It’s Happy Bunny. So, along comes this book today called Cherise the Niece and it’s by Jim Benton. The cover intrigued me right away and I promptly read it. It’s a short little book, so it doesn’t take long. It’s about a little girl named Cherise who goes to live with various aunts after her parents “mysteriously disappear”. I was laughing from the first page and it has the best last line of any book I’ve ever read. I highly recommend it if you have a murderously funny mind like I do. If you are easily offended, then what the hell are you doing reading my blog?
