Everybody Dies is YouTube sensation Ken Tanaka’s children’s book for grown-ups—a macabre and darkly humorous look at mortality in the vein of the classic Japanese children’s book Everybody Poops, All My Friends Are Dead, and the mega-bestseller Go the F**k to Sleep.

In Everybody Dies, Internet icon Ken Tanaka explores the myriad ways in which we all can meet our fate. Echoing the grim fun of Edward Gorey’s beloved Gashlycrumb Tinies, he tells his simply illustrated story in 48 pages of saturated, full-color pictures featuring chunky letters and warm colors, and frank, pointedly sardonic commentary. From a surfing tragedy to being devoured by wild animals, the pestilence of war, and demise by convenience machine, he helps us face the stark reality of “the end” with dark humor and irreverent wit.

Unveiling the truth about living and dying, Tanaka offers cute drawings and little games that take some of the sting and scariness out of mortality, and help us accept the reality that death is a part of life.

From the Back Cover:

Nobody likes to think about death, but the world would be awfully crowded without it.

From YouTube sensation Ken Tanaka and actor David Ury, who was crushed by an ATM on AMC's Breaking Bad, comes Everybody Dies, a colorful story and delightful assemblage of games that makes it easy-even fun- to come to grips with mortality.

About the Author:

Born in Los Angeles as Ken Smith, Ken Tanaka was adopted by a Japanese family and raised in rural Shimane Prefecture. At the age of thirty-three, Ken returned to Los Angeles to search for his birth parents with only their names, Jonathan and Linda Smith. He documented his search on YouTube and quickly become an online sensation. His award-winning videos include the viral hit "What Kind of Asian Are You?", the White Samurai series, and "What Is Art?" In late 2007 Ken was reunited with his long-lost twin brother and "Everybody Dies" coauthor, David Ury, via YouTube (search Ken Tanaka meets David Ury on YouTube). The two of them have been collaborating every since. When en is not buys with his search for the Smiths, he spends his time painting funny people and animals. In 2009 the famed Los Angeles gallery Billy Shire Fine Arts held his now-historic inaugural art show, "Maximum Pleasant," a humorous blend of Japanese and American pop culture.
