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: Hardcover
This book is a lovely gift for a knitter or a sock monkey fan with a sense of humor. The story is cleverly told in two directions and the illustrations are gorgeous. It may look like a children's book, but I find Mr. Millionaire's books more suitable for adults.

A simple yet clever book. Millionaire brings an endearing quality to this short story with humor and wit. You don't need to be familiar with Millionaire's other work to enjoy this book. Great for all ages.

This is a masterpiece; dealing at the same time with narrative " complex " structures, from the theoretical point of view, and what could and should always be a work of art, on the formal level. This could be a Young person's guide to the work of Tony Millionaire.
Not to mention the subtle alternation of black and white / colour pages of this artistic trick. I highly recommand this one.

I'm a big fan of Tony Millionaire's Sock Monkey books. This one is short, but very cute. It's written as two stories at once. Very cleverly done. Plus the illustrations are classic Tony Millionaire.

This book was really cool! My daughter used it at school with a Sock Monkey Costume for a book parade. We loved it!
