Chuck Ballooniac's Guts [Nov. 22nd, 2008|04:29 pm]

All scholars of the literary works of Crumbly Snickerdoodle agree that the Holy Grail of their research would be to find a copy of Chuck Ballooniac's Guts, his first children's book about an overweight boy who avenges himself upon his tormemtors. Sadly, all known copies were burned to ashes by the League for all that is Good and Decent. Imagine my surprise when, at a literal fire sale, I discovered two charred pages that bookend this extraordinary tale. With careful handling and digital restoration, I can now present them to you as they were originally published:

(The origin of this bit of madness.)

Better written than what we were talking about before, that's for sure. Maybe you should contact his publisher. ;)
I particularly like that his victim's head is on backwards. It's sad that Chuck loses his toque, though.

Argh, now I want to know the rest of the story!

This reminds me of Tim Burton's Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy, which is a great set of children's stories not for children.
