Synopsis

Margarash by Mark Riddle

A surprising book that is also a little scary and more than a little deep, Margarash is about a young boy and a seemingly-nasty monster who realize they need each other. Mark Riddle is a Youth Services Librarian with a colossal beard. He was born in Australia, has lived in Taiwan and Turkey, and now resides in North Carolina with his wife, Kate; their cat, Warda Runciblespoon; and several fish and chickens. This is his first picture book. Tim Miller is a creator of picture books. Snappsy the Alligator (Did Not Ask to Be in This Book), written by Julie Falatko, was his first book as an illustrator. Tim studied at the School of Visual Arts where he earned a BA in Cartooning and an MA in Arts Education. He lives in New York City. This is his debut picture book.

Reviews

Riddle's prose provides a strong momentum overall, driving page turns and inspiring Miller's whimsical, childlike illustrations, which depict the titular monster as a gray, furred creature with a comically toothy underbite. A sweet tale of a mutual passion and an unlikely friendship. (Picture book. 3-7) -- The Kirkus
