Stephen Collins is the author of books: The Gigantic Beard That Was Evil, Some Comics, Baby's First Bank Heist (Baby Frank 1)
On the buttoned-down island of Here, all is well. By which we mean: orderly, neat, contained and, moreover, beardless.
Or at least it is until one famous day, when Dave, bald but for a single hair, finds himself assailed by a terrifying, unstoppable... monster*!
Where did it come from? How should the islanders deal with it? And what, most importantly, are they going to do with Dave?
The first book from a new leading light of UK comics, The Gigantic Beard That Was Evil is an off-beat fable worthy of Roald Dahl. It is about life, death and the meaning of beards.
(*We mean a gigantic beard, basically.)
Move over, Bonnie and Clyde, because there's a new criminal mastermind in town . . . Baby Frank!
He's the world's most unlikely criminal, but he's about to pull off the most daring baby bank heist ever.
Why? To get money for a fluffy new pet, of course.
This baby is dangerously cute and desperate for a pet. You have been warned . . .
