- Full Description
Brian Kesinger's first book, Walking Your Octopus, won a Chesley award from the Association of Science Fiction & Fantasy Artists. Brian is also an Annie Award-winning story artist who has worked on over ten Disney animated feature films from Tarzan to Moana. His first two "Octopus" books have our highest recommendation. Now we have an entirely new book which is virtually a paper doll book, with cut-out-able costumes & outfits for both our heroine and her pet octopus. Or just a visual feast of steam-punkish costumes!
It seems a shame to cut this up, bur fortunately this also comes in a softcover edition--so you can preserve this edition and then turn the kids (or yourself) loose and have at it. I could imagine this could be the right kid's dream book, with such imaginative artwork. Come on, even the octopus gets his own zany outfits--cthluhlu, swordfighter, Japanese samurai, chef, tea-server (from Alice in Wonderland)...
And our heroine gets everything from a rocket pack to Scots tartan and bagpipes, full Victorian ballroom dress, beatnik, even a Star Wars outfit complete with light saber. This is a series that appeals to everyone, kids to young ladies to women, yes, mature women. I take these books to conventional antiquarian book shows and they sell themselves.
This special hardcover edition is signed on the first page. And it sports these very cool, ornately designed metal corner clasps on all four of the right hand corners of the book. Look closely at the scan we've done, and then compare it to the softcover edition and you'll see how they look. Pretty cool touch!
Brian's visual mashups combining Star Wars with Calvin and Hobbes have become an internet phenomena. To find out more, visit his website at www.bkartonline.com. You can also find him on Facebook by searching for “Brian Kesinger's Tea Girls.”
