What if you combined Shel Silverstein and Tim Burton with a dollop of Dr. Seuss? You’d get Attaboy. With his theatrical eye for the absurd and unbridled paintbrush, Attaboy’s hilarious anthology of poems will amuse readers of all ages. Off-the-wall characters (a child who is a sock magnet) meet the adorably peculiar (a hugging cactus) and the bizarre (zombie clowns). Then there's the title story. Because of his beastly behavior, Gustav's parents hire an expert to determine if their son is truly a monster! Enjoy hidden jokes and hilarious wordplay in this collection from an irreverent twenty-first century imagination. "Attaboy's creepy cool monsters are an insane delight. They'll leap off the page, squirm through your optic nerve, and haunt your brain forever. And that's a good thing." - Mark Frauenfelder, founder of Boing Boing "If you like weird fun, then you'll love this book. It's like a candy store for your brain and eyes. A creative explosion of colorful stories, poems, and characters." - Liam Lynch creator of The Sifl & Olly Show, director "Tenacious D. and the Pick of Destiny" and Sarah Silverman's "Jesus is Magic"
