  1. There’s something about both the Thumb pictures that makes me think of Dr Seuss. Do we get a clue about what Thumb is about? Or is there a whole section on it that I can’t find?

  2. Think Indiana Jones meets Kafka :). More information to follow. If it looks like a creepy Dr Seuss that’s not a bad thing. At the moment I’m trying to aim for a German Expressionist feel – similar to the films of Murnau.

  3. Hi John,

    I love the art, but even more, your premise. It’s definitely my type of read. On another note, I just finished listening to the audible version of “A Monster Calls: Inspired by an Idea from Siobhan Dowd” by Patrick Ness. I have a feeling you might like it, and while I’m sure it’s a wonderful read, I recommend the audible version. The narrator is spectacular!
