"While Mildred struggles with her feelings for Lee, a bad boy she met in detention, Sonny is intrigued by the mysterious new girl in school, despite his reluctance to move fully into adolescence. Mildred's troubles are compounded by Lee's still-current girlfriend, from whom he is unable to break away, and by Mildred's friends, Lottie and Shauna, who are full of unhelpful advice. Meanwhile, the usual problems of school and family cause their own stresses for the teens. As in the other volumes of the popular webcomic series, Allison seamlessly blends realistic teenagers, full of both silliness and angst, and fantastic events, in this case, Sonny's crush, which has a strange connection to both a fur pelt Lottie found on the seashore and a weird, hairy man who has been seen in town. Allison's bright colors perfectly highlight his expressive art, with each character having his or her distinct personality. The result is a charmingly odd story that will appeal to both teens and adults." - Booklist
"Allison's art conveys the energy of the story well, with very expressive characters and vibrant line work and colors that is effective in both the fun and serious aspects of the story. Suitable for middle school readers and above, The Case of the Fire Inside offers a fun, mythological mystery while aptly capturing the heady feeling for first love - and first heartbreak." - Diamond Bookshelf
About the Author
Born in a hidden village deep within the British Alps, John Allison came into this world a respectable baby with style and taste. Having been exposed to American comics at an early age, he spent decades honing his keen mind and his massive body in order to burn out this colonial cultural infection. One of the longest continuously publishing independent web-based cartoonists, John has plied his trade since the late nineties moving from Bobbins to Scary Go Round to Bad Machinery, developing the deeply weird world of Tackleford long after many of his fellow artists were ground into dust and bones by Time Itself. He has only once shed a single tear, but you only meet Sergio Aragonés for the first time once. John resides in Letchworth Garden City, England, and is known to his fellow villagers only as He Who Has Conquered.

Story-wise, the script was a good deal more thought-out and better crafted than material aimed at a similar age group. Surreal as a anything, surreal is something John Allison is an absolute master at, but solid. Not a small achievement. Don't read this first, though, as your brain will escape through your ear. Go through the series to build up an insanity tolerance first.
