BOTTLE IMP OF BRIGHT HOUSE Signed

Availability: In stock

$17.99
Signed bookplate! Highly Recommended. By Tom Llewellyn. Art by Gris Grimly. Think of a wish. Go big with it. A winning lottery ticket. Eternal happiness. School vacation for a year. Now, answer this question: If you know this wish will come true, would you still make it if you knew someone else would somehow have to pay for it? That's the catch thirteen-year-old Gabe Silver faces when a mysterious millionaire sells him a bottle containing a wish-granting imp. Inspired by a Robert Louis Stevenson novella, this is pithy, dark, and very, very funny. It has an endearing, wacked-out cast of characters brought to life by illustrator Gris Grimly with an embossed color cover and black and white art throughout.

Think of a wish. Go big with it. A winning lottery ticket. Eternal happiness. School vacation for a year. Now, answer this question: If you know this wish will come true, would you still make it if you knew someone else would somehow have to pay for it? That's the catch thirteen-year-old Gabe Silver faces when a mysterious millionaire sells him a bottle containing a wish-granting imp. Inspired by a Robert Louis Stevenson novella, this is pithy, dark, and very, very funny. It has an endearing, wacked-out cast of characters brought to life by illustrator Gris Grimly with an embossed color cover and black and white art throughout. 

Any time Gabe makes a wish, someone else, somewhere, is going to lose something--maybe something big.That means each of Gabe's wishes should be an ethical dilemma--but as he scores a Ferrari, a hot tub, and all the pizza and sub sandwiches a kid could want, he's certain a guilty conscience is worth it...isn't it?

Gris did a special drawing for this exclusive signed bookplate.
