Growing up the Little Golden Books were my second favorite thing to read, comics were first of course. Golden Books were just the right size for my little hands, brightly illustrated, and the foundation of my love for reading
“Grandpa Won’t Wake Up” is wicked little adult read that incorporates my nostalgic memories of those classic childhood reads with my enjoyment of dark humor.
Two little kids anxious for their promised playtime with Grandpa are distressed to find him “asleep”. Thus begins a series of actions to wake Grandpa: they paint his nails green with paint, put him on a trampoline , dress him in Nazi clothes and fishnets um yeah you get the idea right?
Simon Max Hill’s prose will make you laugh, shake you head and leave you uncomfortably silent! Shannon Wheeler is a marvelous artist. The gorgeous watercolor and four color illustrations are reminiscent of beloved childhood classics. This pair has a deal to produce more books for Boom in the future and I can’t wait to see what’s next. Priced at 7.99 this is a wonderful deal and dark twisted fun.
