The Gigantic Beard That Was Evil

Author : Stephen Collins


Rossiter Books

Address: The Corn Exchange,Ross-on-Wye,HR9 5HL



It’s a well known and universal truth that cartoons books are for all ages, and not just for children. In this, his debut novel, leading UK cartoonist Stephen Collins has put this beyond all doubt. Perfect for all ages (whether they have facial hair or not), The Beard That Was Evil is a wonderful, readable tale that held me riveted, unable to put it down. Collins’ beautiful drawings and sparse, stark prose complement each other perfectly, creating a compelling piece of art. But it isn’t all just pretty pictures. The Beard That Was Evil is a poignant, ‘off-beat fable’ about life, death and the idea of being normal. Oh yes, and about absolutely massive beards!
