9780966640403: A Search for Meaning: The Story of Rex

A little fox travels aboard a rocket, a giant insect and a sea beast, is carried into an alien dimension of weird creatures, including darkness and horror personified, dodges comets and finds madness, before finally discovering a ribbon of "truth".

Gagn's wonderful b&w illustrations illustrate this imaginative fantasy in a style that reminds us of the best in Disney animation. A simple but captivating tale that's not just for children. Recommended. -- Bud Plant
