An unexpected journey

I have been loaned some books by my lovely 'illustrated' neighbour, four to be precise, she came round for a cup of tea, had a good look at my recent work, helped me with one or two things then said that I needed to read these books.

They are by this fellow called Nick Bantock...... they are amazing not only
the story but the way it is written, how it is written and how he has presented the the book to the reader.
I went on a journey, a happy and sad journey, one that I hadn't expected, one that I had never imagined
or could have imagined, if you get a chance, give these wonderful books a look....... you need to read all three otherwise you won't know what happens.

I've found his web site have a peek.......

The other book is this one which I've just started reading this evening... A children's book, oh so dark... so far........ a brain kept in a jar of vinegar.
