The Rabbit Hero: Book One - illustrated novel



In stock

  • Handmade

This prose/poem/graphic novel ("proemic") begins the story of young Amy Miss, a melancholic gravedigger poet who finds her own story deeply entwined with that of the legendary Rabbit Hero, the folk hero of stories. Combining original characters and postmodern concepts with elements of folklore, mythology, history, and more, The Rabbit Hero: Book One is a story unlike any other.

Written and illustrated by Tony Brandl, The Rabbit Hero: Book One is perfect for fans of imaginative whimsy such as The Phantom Tollbooth, The Little Prince, and works of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett.

5.25"x8.25", 134 pages, with a matte finish cover and a mixture of color and B&W illustrations.

This book is phenomenal. The story of, well, a story. It’s mentally stimulating, a treat to look at, interestingly detailed. The illustrations are deliberate, and add character. I absolutely cannot wait to read more. And I will read it again!

So fun and really well done. I would’ve read it in one sitting but foolishly started it far too late in the evening. I look forward to a Book Two ^_^
