Synopsis

Norman Enormous by Dave Hackett

Norman Enormous lives by himself, all squished and squashed in his normal-sized home. The one thing he hopes for at the end of each day is to find a real-true-good-fun-very-best-friend. But will he? Dave is an original. This one is a meld of Edward Lear, Dr. Seuss and probably a thousand other influences - but it's somehow 100 per cent Dave Hackett.
