A penguin-filled graphic novel about the Grim Reaper for the little ones?
Oh go on then.
Brendan O’Connell & Fiona Boniwell write:
We’re a writer/illustrator team from Cork who have self-published a graphic novel for children (ostensibly anyway) called Death’s New Lease on Life. It’s about Death, or, to be more specific, the Grim Reaper. And the need to feel wanted. And penguins. So many many penguins.
Thirty two pages long, Death’s New Lease On Life taps into children’s fascination with the macabre, telling the story of how a forlorn Grim Reaper comes to a better appreciation of life and, subsequently, you know, himself. It’s funny and joyous, in its own peculiar way. With lots of new words for curious children to learn. And it has penguins. So many, many penguins.
It’s available in Waterstones in Cork, Vibes & Scribes and a number of independent shops around Cork county. Or it can be bought directly from us here. And there’s also digital version to print on Amazon here.
