About this deal
Howl with laughter and squeal with delight at this monstrously exciting new picture book from number one bestselling author David Walliams, illustrated by the awesome Adam Stower! We get a slow unraveling of the two children/ adults and their father that shares glimpses of who they are and how their relationships became so disconnected yet strongly gnarled together. One moment, you’re studying the white-pink sand below; the next, you’re over a blue-black abyss and staring into darkness.
Ken Gardner in Chatham contemplates all the money winging its way into his account right now as the deal of a lifetime goes ahead. Inspired by the archetypal story of Cain and Abel, Little Monsters is a kaleidoscopic, propulsive, and sophisticated drama exquisite with the tension of characters careening in and out of one another’s orbits, alternately sharing and withholding secrets from one another and themselves—and with Cape Cod’s magnificence and hidden corners elevating every page. There seemed to be build up to SOMETHING, but it totally petered out, and there was no redeeming ending.
It is clear that none of these characters, even Steph—who is arguably a more objective observer, not having known the family before now—have or even can have a full picture of anything.
