With appearances in such anthologies as Zero Zero, Blab! and Kramer’s Ergot, St phane Blanquet has been delighting and terrifying readers with his super-slick, ultra-detailed creepiness. So it makes perfect sense that his first book from Fantagraphics should be…a children’s book?! Yes indeed. The hero, attending a Halloween party in an embarrassing pink bunny costume (he wanted to be a pirate), stumbles across a secret society of damaged, forgotten and angry toys in the basement of his friend’s house – including the terrifying Amelie, a sentient assemblage of broken toy parts!
