A nice little fable or not quite fairy tale,
This review is from: Mouse Bird Snake Wolf (Hardcover)
My local librarian gave me this to read yesterday, probably to get me away from the superhero graphic novels that I am constantly borrowing. Little did he know, or the publishers mention in the book, that I know Dave McKean of old, as an innovative graphic novel illustrator for DC Comics, though he has spread his wings very far since those far-off days.
This is a sort of fable or fairy-tale (without fairies) about creation or the creative imagination, and the things that can go wrong when you get caught up in a creative endeavour without considering the consequences. Other reviewers have described it as a children’s book, and it no doubt is a superb one, but grown-ups with a bit of imagination might find it entertaining also.
