” If You Give A Bunny A Beer is a children’s book for parent’s who drink too much.  Written by Prince of Pieces author Sam Miserendino and illustrated by Mike Odum, it is a heartwarming, cautionary tale about the dangers of mixing alcohol and small mammals.” – Sam Miserendino

Sam Miserendino is responsible for the wildly creative masterpiece PRINCE OF PIECES.  I had the great fortune of meeting Sam at ROCK AND SHOCK October 2015 where he was promoting his new graphic novel Prince Of Pieces.  The concept was daring and imaginative and nothing short of true horror.  It fell in nicely with the atmosphere of the rock and shock horror community.  I spent a little time talking with Sam about his new book and he is one of the nicest people I have met thus far at any convention.  We stayed in touch over the next year until it came time for Rock And Shock 2016.  And true to form he showed up with another great installment in his arsenal. If you give a bunny a beer.  This being a friend of Sam and a fan of his work immediately sparked my interest.  I headed over to his booth and picked up my copy of the book which included a nice poster.  Sam signed my book and seeing Sam was definitely the highlight of my visit to Rock And Shock 2016.
A few days later I sat down to read his new book If you give a bunny a beer.  The book is very easy to read and understand as it is definitely presented in a “children’s book way”  I found the book to be very funny and also very touching.  I think what Sam has done here is great.  The book is executed flawlessly and the illustrations done by
Mike Odum are phenomenal.
If you give a bunny a beer is a cautionary tale indeed which is a must read.  I highly recommend you check out If you give a bunny a beer and also Prince Of Pieces.  You will not be disappointed.  You can get a copy of If you give a bunny a beer HERE.

I look forward to future work from Sam.  I do believe that whatever he creates next will be sure shock and delight.  Below are some fans of Sam who stopped by his booth for a copy of his book and a photo op. -Shawn D. Petrie 2016

Little things
By: Shawn D. Petrie (Winter 2000)


lightining quad logo WITH BACKGROUND JPEG


Silly little children
Playing in a field
Tiny little soldiers
Hiding behind a shield

Scary little monsters
Hiding in the dark
Tiny little doggie
Such a great big bark

Hopeless little flowers
Dying in the shade
Hateful 16 year old boy
And the slicing of his blade

Creepy little bed bugs
Crawling on my skin
Faithless little nuns and priests
Living in there sin

Tiny little pile of dirt
Walked over on the ground
Showy little teenage girl
Weighing just one tiny pound

Sloppy little babies
Spilling every meal
Tiny little furry squirrel
Tiny little squeal

Senseless little meaning
All of this has had
Such a small effect it’s had
Not enough to make me mad

Tiny little minnows
Swimming in a stream
Nothing is ever as it seems
Life is but a dream

ENEMY FRIENDS
By: Shawn D. Petrie (4-23-1995)


LIGHTNING 6 JPEG


When I was a child
Life was full of color
Now that I am a man
Life has turned black and white

When I was growing up
I thought that only good things could happen
When I reached the age of the end
I knew it was just the beginning

Now when I am falling down
Low and self-decaying
I know that I can always turn
To all my enemy friends

Sometimes in life it seems
The only thing that is real
Is the only thing you have
But you lost it years ago

If you dwell on the pain
You will never heal
When you can understand
You are all my enemy friends

If you ask what I see for my future
It doesn’t look too bright
I am wishing on a star
That I will make it till then

When I get scared
Confused and torn away
I will always know that I can turn
To all of my enemy friends

INNOCENT HEART (WISDOM)
By: Shawn D. Petrie 3-5-1996


LIGHTNING 3 JPEG


AM I IN YOUR BLACK BOOK?
WHY BOTHER TO LOOK?

WHY DID YOU NOTICE?

WHY DID YOU STARE?
WHY DID YOU SMILE?

WHY DID YOU TRY?
WHY DID I TRY?

WAS IT NOT SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN?
SHOULD IT HAVE HAPPENED?

WHY DID YOU LEAVE?
WHY DID I LEAVE?

WHAT MADE US LEAVE TOGETHER?
I WANTED US TO LAST FOREVER

HOW COULD YOU LIE?
WHY DID YOU CRY?

WAS IT ALL A JOKE?
BUT NOT A JOKE TO SHARE

BECAUSE THEN THAT WOULD REVEAL
THAT YOU NEVER CARED

AND YOU NEVER WILL
