Do you want to recycle but aren't sure how? Are you concerned that a potential suitor may be a vampire? Have you attended a job interview only to be greeted by Hideous Telepathic Space-faring Lizardmen in Mansuits? The Guide to Moral Living in Examples educates on these and many more common moral conundrums, offering bite-sized advice for nearly every improbable situation. Fueled by years of unintentional research on the connections between robotic bears, talking tattoos, and the best type of soap to remove irremovable rings, Greg X. Graves gives simple, friendly yet essential guidance on the twisted path to moral life. With an introduction by Brenton Harper-Murray and stunning illustrations by Jeff Bent, this anthology is a must-have for young and old aspiring moralists alike. (Goodreads Synopsis)

I wasn't 100% sure what to expect when I turned the first page of this book, but in the end I found it an enjoyable read.

The stories are a bizarre and eclectic collection, each only a few pages long and each ending with an amusing "moral".

I liked some of the tales more than others, but I appreciated the overall humour of the piece and found myself smiling as I read, which is always a good sign!

This may not be to everyone's taste, but you'll appreciate it if you are looking for a light-hearted, tongue-in-the-cheek, humourous read.
