    Sticks and Stones GN (2004 Three Rivers Press) 1-1ST

    1st printing. Story and art by Peter Kuper. Kuper's astonishingly expressive illustrations depict the story of giant Rock Man's volcanic birth and his subsequent attempt to lead a tribe of little rock people. Kuper's characters - including Stonetop, Rock Man's loyal supporter, and Black Rock, a rock woman who opposes Rock Man's militaristic aggression against the neighboring Stick kingdom - all spring to life as wonderfully developed personalities. With illustrations that convey kinetic energy and engaging humor; a crisp, comic, dramatic story that rings with the truth of an ancient myth; as well as a slyly persuasive political message, Sticks and Stones is a legend for our times. Softcover, 8-in. x 8-in., 128 pages, PC/PB&W. Cover price $13.95.
