How many times have you been reading some lame picture book to your kid about green eggs and ham or a boy playing on an island with a bunch of monsters and thought "this is Ok, but what I'd really like to be reading is a story about a dead cat who is struck by lightning and comes back to life to pursue his unfulfilled ambition of being a famous drummer in a rock band. And oh yeah... I'd like it to rhyme"
Well... I can't tell you how many times I've thought that same thought, which is why when the opportunity to illustrate Kristyn Crow's delightful "Skeleton Cat" manuscript (published by Scholastic) came up I jumped at it!

So for those of you who have been walking around all this time with a sad, empty, hollow, miserable, dead kind of feeling inside because of your inability to read a story such as this, I have this to say to you. It's time for you to turn your life around and be happy again by clicking the link here and buying this book. And for those of you who have been wishing for the same kind of story except one that features a zombie hedgehog instead of a cat, you might as well go ahead and buy this one because that's kind of ridiculous and no one is ever going to put out a book like that and this is probably as close as you're going to get, plus there are a few hedgehogs in it too so it's almost the same thing.

I am now pleased to present to you, coming soon to book stores and book clubs, wittily written by Kristyn Crow, lovingly painted in Photoshop by yours truly and published in lush, flexi-plyable paperback by Scholastic. SKELETON CAT!!! available July 1st 2012.
