Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Alternative cartoonist Millionaire (Maakies; Sock Monkey) planted himself firmly in the children's section with his last book, That Darn Yarn! The seventh in a series that began with five adult-oriented books, Little and Large continues the children's vein of Yarn. It shares characters with the first book, and is written with the same interconnected plot technique that made Yarn! stand out from other children's books. The first story, about a spider whose home is destroyed when a tree is chopped down, is in color, while the second, about what the wood from the tree becomes, is black-and-white—and the two mesh nicely in alternating panels as the spider explores possible homes in a weathervane, a dollhouse ("I'm crazy about those curtains!"), and a goose-wagon. Millionaire's deft line drawings and soft colors are the perfect counterpoint to the bizarre workings of his mind, and evoke a world in which geese pull wagons, sock monkeys wear hats—and spiders always find a place to call home. Children who enjoy Shel Silverstein or Mo Willems should enjoy Millionaire's last two books—though parents should be warned to stay away from the first five, which live up to Millionaire's alternative reputation.

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.

Classic Tony Millionaire. Uncle Gabby finds a poor little homeless spider, and does his best to find the little guy a new home. Loved it!

I' m a Millionaire fan, especially when he explores the odd side of life and paradoxal events in short elliptic stories. Therefore, the construction of the narration, based on two apparently parallel stories coming to one at the end, twisted and simple at the same time, is quite innovative.
