A tiny planet is home to two giant creatures and a lot of trouble in this charming children's book written and illustrated by the great zombie filmmaker.

Welcome to the little world of Tongo, where two Humongos live. Their names are Pongo and Bongo, and despite being gigantic scaly fire-breathers, they wouldn't hurt a fly—at least not on purpose. But when the tiny Peanut people arrive and Bongo must live among them, how will he ever fit in? Especially when everything is so easily crushable under his well-meaning feet?

From the creator of horror film classics such as Night of the Living Dead and Creepshow comes a humorous and whimsical children's tale of different creatures trying to coexist. In line with Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's The Little Prince, The Little World of Humongo Bongo is a beautiful fable about the evolution of civilization.

First published in Belgium, The Little World of Humongo Bongo is finally available in an English edition from ChiZine Publications. This edition features illustrations by Romero himself and a foreword by Tony Timpone, former editor-in-chief of Fangoria magazine.

"Loved this book. Zany fun. But since it's George Romero, there's a touch of evil behind it all!" —R. L. Stine, author of Goosebumps and Fear Street
