Writer David Quinn is a versatile and imaginative creator. Although he is best-known for co-creating the adult horror comic book series Faust: Love of the Damned, and for writing Doctor Strange for two years at Marvel Comics, Quinn has written a wide range of material over his 30 year career.
Quinn’s newest project is in collaboration with illustrator Ashley Spires. Go to Sleep, Little Creep is a rhyming picture book about baby monsters and their monster parents who are trying to get them to go to bed.
Quinn was kind enough to e-mail me a preview copy of Go to Sleep, Little Creep. It was a very charming read. Quinn’s prose is sweet and humorous. Spires’ wonderful illustrations are adorable and funny. The designs of the baby monsters are wonderfully sweet.
By the way, as a huge fan of both cats and scary stories, I think the Mummy Cat, the pet of the Baby Mummy, is very cute.
Go to Sleep, Little Creep is for children ages 2 to 5, although I honestly think older readers, and even adults, will find it charming. It is scheduled for release on July 24, 2018 through the Crown Books for Young Readers imprint of Penguin Random House.
Previews and behind-the-scenes info can be found on David Quinn’s blog, In Walked Quinn, where he discusses the conception and development of the book.
I definitely recommend Go To Sleep, Little Creep to genre fans, both those with and without children. No matter how young or old you are, it is an enjoyable read.
