A sock monkey named Uncle Gabby and his button-eyed friend, Mr. Crow, live with their human friend, Ann-Louise, and all of her other toys in a lovely and peaceful Victorian home. Yet Gabby's curiosity and guile — routinely foiled by his innocence — lead him and Mr. Crow into outrageous (and outrageously funny) tales of misguided derring-do, occasionally nightmarish fantasies, and unrequited love. Tony Millionaire's vivid and brilliant Sock Monkey stories evoke the dark, surrealist wit of Roald Dahl, while echoing the classic illustrative styles of E.H. Shepard's Winnie the Pooh or Johnny Gruelle's Raggedy Ann and Andy. It's a recipe for a timeless classic to be enjoyed by generations.
This handsome storybook collects over 300 pages of Tony Millionaire's Sock Monkey and Mr. Crow adventures including:
• The only full-length Sock Monkey graphic novel, The Inches Incident
• The full-color storybook classic, "The Glass Doorknob"
• The full-color graphic novella, "Uncle Gabby"
• Eight other essential stories: "Heaven," "Borneo," "Dollhouse," "The Trumbernick," "The Hunters," "A Baby Bird," "The Oceanic Society," and "Heartbreak."
