There’s serious science here, but also cultural lessons in death and dying, a little history, and a touch of gruesomeness wrapped in that shroud of sharp, witty humor.

Will my cat eat my eyeballs? How Caitlin Doughty teaches kids

When faced with the question “what do you want to be when you grow up?”, very few kids would answer “undertaker”. Caitlin Doughty, perhaps most famous for her YouTube channel Ask a Mortician, certainly wouldn’t have. “I never had any sense of the funeral industry as anything other than this dark, archaic hole with a man in a suit putting electric green fluid through a tube into a corpse. It never even occurred to me that I could be a part of it,” she says. There’s serious science here, but also cultural lessons in death and dying, a little history, and a touch of gruesomeness wrapped in that shroud of sharp, witty humor." I’m a little bit obsessed with the Spooky Queen of Death, Caitlin Doughty. I love that she is trying to change our attitudes towards and make us all less fearful of the great leveller, DEATH. The more you know about something, the less likely you are to be scared of it. Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs? is technically targeted towards children or young adults, although I didn’t get that impression while reading. I found it to be incredibly informative, enlightening and funny. It’s the kind of book you read and can’t wait to share these tidbits of information with those around you. DID YOU KNOW.... and so forth.Caitlin, you're a national treasure, you're a great time, and you teach me and everyone who wants to know so much Stuff about being dead. I was late to the party that is "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes: And Other Lessons From the Crematory" and loved it so Caitlin Doughty's engaging and hilarious writing removes the stigma often associated with death, inviting us to think about the unavoidable end of life we will all have to face one day. Each chapter thoroughly answers the questions we're all dying to know with fascinating responses. I also really enjoyed the artwork by Dianné Ruz at the beginning of every chapter. All death questions are good death questions, but the most direct and most provocative questions come from kids. (Parents: take note.) Before I started holding death Q & As, I imagined kids would have innocent questions, saintly and pure.

Young people were braver and often more perceptive than the adults. And they weren’t shy about guts and gore. They wondered about their dead parakeet’s everlasting soul, but really they wanted to know how fast the parakeet was putrefying in the shoebox under the maple Oh, hey. It’s me, Caitlin. You know, the mortician from the internet. Or that death expert from NPR. Or the weird aunt who gave you a box of Froot Loops and a framed photo of Prince for your birthday. I’m many things to many people. Totally worth reading and I am very glad I left my fiction comfort zone and gave this nonfiction book a whirl. No regrets!
