    To a space geek, LEO and GEO mean something entirely different.  I was disappointed.

    I saw his art and book presented at a gallery opening in Lebanon, NH months ago.  It was a show with artists from the Center for Cartoon Studies in Vermont.  I loved this book as soon as I saw it.

    Kind of Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel meets Freud.

    The penwork on Chad’s illustrations are massive.

  4. Very cool! And remember, stalacTITEs have to hang on TIGHT, while stalagMITEs MIGHT reach the ceiling one day!

    He must be traveling near an induction zone for there to be fossils so close to the Mantle!

    This looks awesome. It is exactly the kind of thing I would have loved and adored and re-read constantly when I was in elementary school.

    And I would have unwittingly internalized the sister’s role — to stay topside and worry and wait for the scientifically-adventuring brother.

    This doesn’t make it less awesome or less worthwhile. And I am not accusing the author of sexism, or doing this intentionally, or anything. Clearly that’s not the case.

    But it’s just another little twinge.

    My 8-year-old daughter just found this book at the library and really enjoyed it. Although, to be honest, she’s spent more time with “What Stinks?” by Marilyn Singer. Rocks are great, but poop is hard to beat for a second grader.
