"The circus life sure is grand, but let's face it, I'm no flea! I'm an earmite, I gotta get me an ear!" So declares Mighty Mite the earmite, a wandering hobo of an insect whose discovery of a toy boat allows him to set sail out of the wild and in search of a "home sweet home," but not before a stint in a traveling flea circus along the way. Meanwhile, speaking of circuses, a lonely ape named Gabby has fled one himself and now scrounges for food and shelter in the back alleys of a strange city. But what does this have to do with our hero? Mighty Mite unfolds via a uniquely inventive formal approach: the left-hand pages tell Gabby's story, the right-hand pages our eponymous hero's, and not before the last page does the intertwined fate of both become clear. Mighty Mite's pages are presented in luscious full-color, Gabby's in stark grey. Presented as a lovely yet inexpensive 4" x 4" color hardcover objet d'art, Mighty Mite is a wonderfully unique and elegantly crafted story for all ages and a perfect introduction to Millionaire's absurdist blend of gung-ho humor and exquisite pen and ink illustrations. Deceptively simple yet ornately packaged, this is simply a wonderful little book that will command reading after reading amongst children and adults alike.
