The ineffable nature of grieving and belief inspires a tender, gritty, and breathtaking work of graphic storytelling from the creators of The Savage.

(Ages 7 & Up)


"Slogger, man," I said. "Your dad’s dead."
"I know that, Davie. But it’s him. He’s come back again, like he said he would."

Do you believe in life after death? Slog does. He believes that the scruffy man on a bench outside the butcher shop is his dad, returned to visit him one last time. Slog’s friend Davie isn’t so sure. Can it be that some mysteries are never meant to be solved? And that belief, at times, is its own reward? The acclaimed creators of The Savage reunite for a feat of graphic storytelling that defies categorization. Eerie, poignant, and masterful, Slog’s Dad is a tale of astonishing power and complexity.

Review:

A very touching graphic novel * The Bookseller * This is every bit as powerful, as moving, as magical as The Savage...Almond and McKean have created something just as wonderful as The Savage, and Slog's Dad is an incredible work. * Forbidden Planet * An incredible work...Almond and McKean have created something just as wonderful as The Savage. * Forbidden Planet blog * The sad, evocative story is mostly told through Almond's prose, but McKean's pictures don't just illustrate the events in the story. Rather, they amplify and add to them, bringing an extra dimension of meaning to a story already packed with emotion. * The Irish Times * This extraordinarily beautiful and sensitive book by the award-winning team of Almond and McKean almost defies description - it's a stand-alone story with stunning graphics that expand the book's heart-rendering message...Simply stunning. * Daily Mail *
