My Pictures After the Storm

I love a book that makes me laugh out loud. And Eric Veillé’s book? Oh, people. It came through again. And again. And again.

Publishers Weekly agrees with me. See?

“Unexpected giggles await with every page turn.”―starred, Publishers Weekly

Please take a look at one of the spreads:

You guys, I was almost CRYING when I saw the after lunch picture of the boiled spinach. That spinach made me need to BUY THIS BOOK!


And the piece of ham? C’mon! That is GOLD.


And just look at those eyeballs and the neatly labeled feathers! Omigoodness!

Seriously. If your life is calling for a book that is a little off its rocker, My Pictures After the Storm is the book for you.



Congratulations, Susan Roberts! You won a copy of But the Bear Came Back.
