Well… he’s reading!

Fish has a new favorite book written by Joaquin Ramon Herrera and Horris, an indestructible monster friend.

The book has 92 pages in all.  Half are small type and the other half are great black and white illustrations. The illustrations remind me of creatures from Foster’s Home For Imaginary Friends.

The book has a myriad of topics all equally disturbing.  Did you know Lobsters are oceanic bugs in the arachnid family?  Did you know that piranhas can attack a drinking cow and pull it under the water to eat it?  DId you know that humans used to burn each other up on bonfires?  Did you hear about the woman who bathed in blood because she thought it would keep her young and beautiful?  In addition to these scientific and historic accounts Herrera also included imaginary terrors:  What would it be like to run out of air, or freeze to death in outer space?

All in all it’s a pretty scary book delivered in a matter of fact and sometimes comical manner.    A gruesome six year old boy loves it dearly.  We buzzed through it yesterday afternoon.  Yes, the whole thing.  And he’s taken to carring it around with him today.  Hmmm… what else does Joaquin Ramon Herrera have to offer?
