In spare, poignant, direct prose, I Hate Everyone paints a nuanced and honest portrait of the complex emotional lives of children.

"I hate everyone." In your worst mood, it's a phrase you might want to shout out loud, even if, deep down, you don't really mean it. Set at a birthday party, this disgruntled, first-person story portrays the confusing feelings that sometimes make it impossible to be nice, even—or especially—when everyone else is in a partying mode. A gorgeous, poetic contemplation, sure to elicit a reaction from readers. A worthy successor to Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.

About the Author and the Illustrator:

Naomi Danis is the managing editor of Lilith magazine, independent, Jewish, and frankly feminist. I Hate Everyone is her fourth book for young children. For this one, she asks, "Did you ever wish someone would go away and leave you alone, and then change your mind?" When she is not busy enjoying herself in spite of herself at birthday parties, and napping on airplanes and trains as a long-distance grandmother, she can often be found preparing meals for herself, her family, and friends in her Forest Hills, New York kitchen, and composting in her garden. She loves leftovers, is an absolute beginner at ballet, and is learning to worry less about surprises.

Based in Madrid, Cinta Arribas is a frequent contributor to Flow magazine and The Debrief, among others. In addition to her editorial work, she had created illustrations for a number of children’s books, from a coloring book to a recipe book, and her work has been featured in several anthologies. Coco ¿dónde estás? was her first full-length picture book, which she wrote and illustrated, and which was published in Spain and the United States. Her work is colorful and expressive; it has a subtle sense of humor that reminds us life should always be a little fun. Her pieces are delicate scenes in which everyday life is combined with irreverence to create a tender and, at times, disturbing universe.
