Jordan Crane's all-ages classic is in paperback for the first time! This gorgeously packaged (yet affordable) children's fantasy has become an instant classic since its original hardcover release in 2005, becoming a perennial bestseller for Fantagraphics in three hardcover printings. This paperback edition — a first — includes five new pages not included previously!

On their way through the city to school, Simon and his cat Jack keep taking shortcuts that lead them through fantasy worlds of wooden monsters and insatiable appetites, just for starters. Will they make back home safely? This is undoubtedly one of the more handsome and unique packages in recent memory, with a brilliant graphic novel inside that justifies its elegant format. The Clouds Above calls to mind everything from Where the Wild Things Are to The Wizard of Oz to The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, with its depiction of a fantastic world that lurks just around the corner from reality and that only children believe exists.

Download an EXCLUSIVE 20-page PDF excerpt (3.1 MB), which includes the beautiful wraparound cover and all-new inside flaps.

"Think Where The Wild Things Are, after a strong dose of electric Kool-Aid." – Entertainment Weekly

"The book is a joy to look at — Crane's loose, gliding lines burst with character, and his compositional gifts make every panel worth contemplating on its own." – Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Best All-Ages Comic of 2006, Wizard
