My rating: 4/5 cats
One StarOne StarOne StarOne Star

this book is a collaboration between tony millionaire and matt danner, who was the director of The Drinky Crow Show. it’s a prose reworking of previously-seen adventures of drinky crow (just mr. crow here, although his discovery of the joys of drink is included within), uncle gabby, inches and ann-louise.

so, if you’ve already read a bunch of tony millionaire’s books before, why would you want to revisit them again in a book that is mostly words and not page after page of dark and alienating drawings? i mean, who wants to read, right???

WHY??? WHY???

because THIS, is why:


this book is basically the treatment danner wrote for the sock monkey MOVIE! and how great is that teaser, huh?? pretty freaking great. i love the way he walks. and his smile. and i wanna see more. so even though some of this might be familiar to you, suck it up and READ IT. because i figure any money made from the sale of this book will funnel directly into the project of “making this movie happen.” and i am on team “making this movie happen.”

and it’s not like there aren’t plenty of great illustrations here.

this feels gauche, but when i announced i was starting a blog, everyone assured me this is a thing that is done. i’m not on facebook, i’ve never had a cellphone or listened to a podcast; so many common experiences of modern life are foreign to me, but i’m certainly struggling financially, so if this is how the world works now, i’d be foolish to pass it up. any support will be received with equal parts gratitude and bewilderment.
