So how do you assemble a magical story about a family of Aphids? I am not sure, but this sell out volume united the creative vision of Matt Hall, the magical painting of Joe Sorren and the timeless design of Mark Murphy. This limited volume was packaged in a pine box with spoken word CD and archival, collector's edition book. An instant sell out and award winner. It is possible that this may be republished soon.
"Uh-huh." Uncle Michael started to relight his pipe, then stopped and changing his mind, tapped out the ash onto the ground."And what makes you think you're gonna have more time or energy than your father?" Tucking his pipe into his waistcoat, Uncle Michael moved up close to me. "Rosey." He took my face, my cheeks, into his massive palms. "Rosey, your daddy was a great mollusk. He was born to be a Pie-Scout, but you, you were born for other things." Uncle Michael stroked my antennae back, and in the span of those three, maybe four seconds, I saw myself again as a tiny child, and Uncle Michael showing me my first people-book, showing me how to read the words. I saw my first trip to the people-library in Idle Point. I felt again, his hand over mine, showing me how to make the letters, to write. "Don't get stuck here, Rosey. The world's waiting for you. You're young. Young. You've got a gift, and now you've got a chance to make something of yourself. Don't waste it."
