The Sunday Books

Foreword Review — Sept / Oct 2011

Each Sunday during the late 1940s, British author/illustrator Mervyn Peake drew fabulous scenes of adventure for his young sons to accompany stories he sadly never recorded. Over sixty years later, his friend, fantasy writer Michael Moorcock, has invented hilarious tales to celebrate their debut publication in The Sunday Books. The romantic spirit of a devoted father lives on in drawings of buccaneers, bosuns, and scurrilous sorts of every stripe. Ages five and up.
