morris dancing

Yay, the book Giles Andreae and I put together, Morris the Mankiest Monster goes on sale TODAY!!!! You can buy it in UK bookshops or online, Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.fr, etc.

Just because it's my first book in the UK, and I'm way too excited, I'm offering this Morris painting to the first person to write an interesting review on Amazon (or another big book selling website, I'm just picking Amazon 'cause I'm a Seattle girl). I need this baby to sell and sell, so, uh, I can pay my studio rent. Woo hoo! Leave a comment here on LiveJournal when you've posted your review, and when I see it's gone up, I'll get your address and send off your piece of original artwork!

Edit: Congratulations to Rick Eades in Manchester for winning the Morris painting! By the way, he's eadesmust and he writes brilliant comics, have you seen them?

Funny, disgusting and brilliant!!!
By Mr. Ra Eades
If you like laugh out loud childrens books that appeal to both adults and kids, then this is one to add to your collection. Wonderfully written and illustrated throughout this book had both me and my children, aged 3 and 7 in hysterics and going 'YUCK!' in equal measure. The level of detail in the artwork is amazing and my children loved pointing out all the little creatures who inhabit Morris's world. If you want to please your kids with a book that you and they can reread over and over or if you just like books about monsters who floss their teeth with slugs, then buy this NOW!

Let me sign your book this weekend at the British International Comics Show, where we'll officially give Morris his launch!

Picture size about 10x10cm, competition not open to people sent free advance copies of the book, although I might bake them cookies or something.

Sarah, congratulations on the new book, it's amazing! I pre-ordered my copy from Play.com and it arrived last Saturday?! Me and my kids love it, it's so funny and I'll be amazed if it's not a hit. The kids favourite pages are the ones with flossing slugs and the Morris's rather disgusting collection of food jars. I've shown the book to a number of friends and the general reaction seems to be 'Ewwwwwwww!' followed by belly laughs! I've posted a rather ham fisted attempt at a review over on amazon? Congrats!
