Product Description

Review

A glorious ode to critical thinking (Tatler)

Minchin's wordplay is dazzling (Elle)

Turner's spiky illustrations suit the tone...buy the book, watch the animation then if you're lucky, catch it live (The Metro)

The pace is harried and paired with stark illustrations that only emphasise the vent that made it to the stage (Leicester Mercury)

Storm brings Minchin's vivid, poetic and passionately argued rant to life.... DC Turner's illustrations do exactly what they are meant to do: they exaggerate the situation and caricature moods and situations (Entertainment Focus)

King and Turner's artwork sizzles with energy producing some striking layouts and effects (The Telegraph)

Storm is an unusual book that brings together ideas, poetry and comic book type illustrations which perfectly complement each other (London Visitors)

There's multiple ways to read the poem, whether it's swiftly flicking through the pages, spitting out the words as quickly as you can read them; dwelling over each panel, absorbing the stylised artwork, or reading in time with the YouTube animation. Whichever way you choose, it's a razor sharp satire that's funnier the second time around than the first. (Starburst Magazine)

The beat of the original poem is transcribed perfectly and I suspect "Storm: The Illustrated Book" will bring this cry for reason and understanding of science to a completely new audience which is exactly as it should be. (Upcoming 4 Me)

Tim's cleverly worded and rhymed prose full of passionate and articulate arguments that just make sense.
The poem is brought to life by fantastic illustrations that fit the poem flawlessly. This book comes highly recommended and it doesn't disappoint.

(We Love This Book)

he book isn't a direct copy of the animation. There are extra and alternative scenes. This comes as a pleasant surprise as it made the book well worth reading despite having now seen the animation many times. The book is as good. It's as engaging. It's as clever. (Geek Native)

Storm is an edgy pictorial tour de force that will delight and enchant readers who love the funny and fantastic but never forget where the horizons of fantasy end and the borders of imagination begin... (Comics Review)

Turner and King's artwork is all angles and points, Picasso by the way of Bryan Lee O'Malley's SCOTT PILGRIM series...it's razor sharp satire and funnier the second time around (Starburst Magazine)

Book Description

Dazzling illustrated poetry from the magical mind of Tim Minchin. This is a deluxe limited edition of his first ever book and features a foreword from Neil Gaiman.

"I'm a musician with a swollen sense of my ability to articulate my insignificance." - Tim Minchin. He also loves to articulate other people both brilliantly and often satirically. He's insanely clever and this song and the illustrated book are brilliant for a light and entertaining graphic novel. Highly recommended.

Graphic novel as comic strip style of images throughout. Not my style of reading but script content is excellent. Given how brilliant Tim Minchin obviously is, I just wish he would write more . Tim, more music, musicals, comedy shows please! 👍🏻

I've seen the animated version, I have the t-shirts. I didn't think Storm could get any better, I was wrong. This one is awesome! Buy, read, study, enjoy!

I first heard Storm a few years back in one of a handful of Tim Minchin gigs I've been lucky enough to get to and it's always been one of my favourite pieces. This book, following on from the funkily animated short film, is a real treat and I'm looking forward to juxtaposing the reading with the listening :)

Awesome job. Tim Minchin's Storm is great and the art in the book is good. The price is a bit high though.

When I first heard Tim Minchin recite this, I loved it - heck, any of his poems/songs are worth a listen for their sheer cleverness.

Along came the animation to accompany the poem, and now the book. Bought as a present, this was an immediate success.

If you're into homeopathy, astrology, and quackery (yes, I'm looking at you David Tredinnick, MP), then this is the book for you. Maybe it'll open your eyes to how idiotic your ideas are.
