Jeffrey Brown is the best selling author and illustrator of the middle grade Jedi Academy series, as well as the Darth Vader and Son series. When he was a kid, Jeffrey always dreamed of growing up to draw comics and make books for a living—and now he’s living that dream! Jeffrey has written a number of autobiographical books for adults (Clumsy, Unlikely, and A Matter of Life, among others, all from Top Shelf Productions), humorous graphic novels about cats (Cat Getting Out of a Bag, Cats Are Weird, from Chronicle Books), and parodies like Incredible Change-Bots (and its two sequels, all also from Top Shelf).
His most recent project has been 40,000 years in the making: Lucy & Andy Neanderthal! Lucy and Andy are a brother and sister living in the stone age, where they struggle to survive mammoths, cave bears, and their own sibling rivalry. Lucy & Andy Book Two: The Stone Cold Age is available now.
Brown follows his autobiographical Clumsy (2003), Unlikely (2003), and AEIOU (2005), which recount a series of disastrous relationships, with a day-by-day chronicle of his interactions with five girls (his word) over the course of three weeks. The most unsettling is troubled free-spirit Allisyn, Brown's first romance (the subject of Clumsy), who re-insinuates herself into his life. The sweetest is Stephanie, who works at the coffeehouse he hangs out at; he is willfully oblivious to her crush on him. Visiting pen-pal Lisa and former roommate Thu have little more than cameos here. Unlike the dramatic, relationship-altering events that shaped Brown's other stories, small moments make up Every Girl, and the rhythms of Brown's everyday life--day job, drawing sessions, video viewing, partygoing, all depicted in his disarmingly shaky drawing style--enhance the aura of the quotidian. If Brown's coterie of sympathetic fans will be relieved at the absence of dudgeon and drama, they're likely also to wish, a bit guiltily, for a little frisson-gendering angst to jack up the energy level.
