Mark Newgarden and Megan Montague Cash will be at Comic Arts Brooklyn on November 8 to debut a sneak peak of their new wordless picture book, “Bow-Wow’s Nightmare Neighbors” from Neal Porter Books/ Roaring Book Press.
Visitors to CAB will be able to purchase a signed copy weeks before it is available in any bookstore.
“Bow-Wow’s Nightmare Neighbors” (already awarded a Junior Library Guild Premier Selection and four starred trade reviews) is the long-awaited follow up to their multiple award-winning “Bow-Wow Bugs A Bug.”
“This is a mysterious and perfectly-crafted little book, full of surprises and profundities and infused throughout with an uncanny sensitivity to the current state of canine-feline relations.”–Dan Clowes
“Bow-Wow is like Bee-Bop; you can read it quick or spend your time with it. Either way, it swings.”–Mo Willems
“Bow-Wow’s Nightmare Neighbors” is a wordless, jazzy composition of complicated-yet-simple pictograms, lively cartoon rhythms and surprising pictorial puzzles; unlike most newer children’s literature, it isn’t just illustrated text, but genuine visual art — and is all the more literary for it. I loved it (and I bet kids will, too.)”– Chris Ware
“This book has no words so I have some for it: smart, funny, stylish, spooky, clever and amazing.”– Lane Smith
