Product Details


“McGuire’s singular, virtuoso approach to storytelling is again the star….McGuire has given us another original and pleasurable work, as freewheeling, artful and exuberant as the artist himself.” —James Yeh, The New York Times

“Spot drawings are small, and McGuire’s combine the clean lines of comic art, the charm of a good idea, the pleasure of scientific observation, and a hint of story. In each drawing, and in each sequence, there are observations and connections that delight….Why are the drawings so appealing? Because they pay close attention to detail, to the many ways in which humans have invented small, useful things, and because they’re drawn simply and gracefully, with what feels like affection, despite being almost exactly realistic….Removed from the text in which they first appeared, [the spots] allow us to focus on the delicious works of art that they are—subtle, rewarding stories that once complemented other stories….Excellent.” —Sarah Larson, The New Yorker
