Description

“The Weather Clock said knife o'clock, so I chained Dad up in the shed”

In Scarper Lee's world, parents don't make children—children make parents. Scarper's father is a wind-powered brass construction whilst his mother is a bakelite hairdryer. It’s also a world without birthdays, only deathdays, and Scarper's deathday is fast approaching. With just three weeks left to live, Scarper is forced from his routine and strikes out into the unknown—where relationships are tested and authority challenged. An edgy and surreal fantasy from internationally acclaimed writer/artist, Rob Davis, Eisner-nominated for The Complete Don Quixote

“Brimming with invention, Davis subverts and deepens the school adventure yarn and asks if anyone can escape their fate.” – The Independent 

“You’re drawn in by its strange world and you come to care about its characters, and both are so vivid that the result is an outstanding piece of work.” – SFX Magazine

“A graphic novel of incredible resonance and absolute, inscrutable beauty, at once a coming-of-age and coming-to-terms tale…” – Library Journal
