Description

A laugh out loud funny parable for the digital age. There once was a lady who was very creepy. She moved about the world in seemingly normal ways, except for one tremendously bizarre tic. First she sought out kids transfixed by their screens, staring blindly and blank-faced at nearly any device, and then she would snatch something precious from them. In this picture book for grown-ups, sibling duo Keiler Roberts and Lee Sensenbrenner render a compelling and downright creepy modern fable about kids who are hooked on their digital devices. Creepy is the contemporary answer to the shocking tales of the Brothers Grimm and bedtime moral stories like the boy who cried wolf or the princess and the pea: in it, Roberts and Sensenbrenner provide a shrewd and comical commentary on the increasing digitization of childhood. Known for her award-winning autobiographical comics, Roberts s signature deadpan humour is on full display in these vibrantly painted pages. It s safe to say that no one tackles the peril of screen time as vividly or absurdly as this pair.
