    Simple yet so beautiful. Though, I wonder how long until these 16pictures and 16sentences are optioned for a feature film ala ‘Where The Wild Things Are’ and ‘Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs’..?

    This brings to mind a painting I can’t Google.

    A Miro, maybe? Arp? The title is “Colossus of ” something I can’t remember. Cebu? Ceylon?

    Is is a good book to give to a child as a gift?

    It looks different and a lot more fun than many of the other sentence books out there.

    I clicked through to Amazon to buy this and lo and behold, in the “customers who bought this also bought” there was:
    “You Shall Die By Your Own Evil Creation!” by Fletcher Hanks from july 2009, http://www.amazon.com/You-Shall-Your-Evil-Creation/dp/1606991604/ref=pd_sim_b_6/189-9563395-9794135

    Great news! Now I know what to give at least 3 people for christmas. It is a companion volume to “I shall destroy all the civilized planets!” BB’ed previously here http://www.boingboing.net/2007/06/26/i_shall_destroy_all_.html

    Thank you Amazon customers and recommendation software devs!

    also resembles Chris Ware’s oft-appearing, early-”Acme Novelty” robot, as well as the numerous models Rocket Sam built as companions in more recent issues.

    and in a way, reminds me of home

    Lovely! I bought Gauld’s Three Very Small Comics pt2 for my girlfriend. It’s beautifully illustrated, he does great work.

    I saw Gorey too! I didn’t see the Fruit Fucker right away, but I also saw shades of the Iron Giant. Good mix.
