More About the Author

I was born in the fishing town of Gloucester Massachusetts, a town full of fishermen and seascape painters. My grandparents were artists, they taught me how to use ink pens and oil paint. My grandpop showed me lots of old newspaper comics he had saved, old ones, Roy Crane, Lionel Feininger, Winsor McKay. When I was in college I discovered R. Crumb and S. Clay Wilson. I drew a lot of perverted comics, until one day I discovered George Herriman, the grandfather of American comics. The true master. People often ask me if comics are "art." Whatever, I don't care what you call them, but when you're immersed in a collection of Herriman Sundays you understand what they're getting at.
I love funny comics but I love moving, emotional, poetical comics, too. Preferably a mixture of both.

Format: Paperback
The Sock Monkey tales are great stories, full of fantastic illustrations. Tony Millionaire's art is unique and impressive, and is strongly inspired by early 20th century art. The Sock Monkey tales are a great read and are innocent enough to be read by children (unlike Tony Millionaire's Maakies).

Format: Paperback
The title does not make it clear that this is a compilation of volumes three and four. The cover looks very similar to the first book. These stories are odd and wonderful. The best story by far is the one where Inches the doll finds a "pony" by the seashore, hitches it to her milkwagon and then has to deal with the Oceanic Society.

If I could, I'd give this 4.5 stars, knocking a half star off for the fourth story, which just isn't as well executed as the first three.

Otherwise, more Millionaire brilliance.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book to accompany a sock monkey toy for my granddaughter. But I was unable to give the book to her because it is too dark and graphic for a child. My mistake for thinking this was a children's book.
