Published: Riverhead Books - September 3rd, 2019

When I picked this one up, I knew it was gonna be a great read-and it turned out to be even better than that. A light and humorous collection of truly ABSURD ways of doing things like moving (use a rocket!) or building a pool (might be easier on Mars. No, really!). Just as absurd but wholesome as Munroe's initial webcomic, XKCD, and worth every read.

Phenomenal. I didn't think this pair of creators could outdo their previous book Lost Words, but they have. The illustrations are so beautiful; it feels like you could fall into the scenes. The poetry is fun, and haunting, and lyrical. Definitely the type of poetry that rumbles around in your head, so much so that you'll find yourself thinking of it time and time again. Unlike its predecessor, in a very travel-handy format!
