Writer(s): Lewis Trondheim
6x9, 128pp., full color trade pb. with flaps, $14.95
An ordinary man is not a boring man, as the escapades of Trondheim's bird-headed alter-ego shows. Daily life is full of small aggravations, surprises, delights, and challenges, all couched within home and car maintenance, work, marriage, kids and pets. Trondheim chases rainbows, plays pranks, tries his hand at gardening, and plays with his kid's toy light saber, usually when no one is watching. He also lives with petty anxieties and paranoias, endowing them with grace and humor, as if he were Charlie Brown all grown up.
You will want to hold this book, flip through it, and read it repeatedly. It will restore and refresh your own whimsical eye, inspiring you to see your daily life in small, perfect vignettes, and reminding you of the value of goofing off. Catch a preview at the publisher's website.
