One of our bestselling books of 2007, and still going strong, is Edward Monkton's Happiness
. We were so smitten by this hilariously bizarre but wise and inspirational collection of musings and drawings we thought, 'We want more!' Well, we're very pleased to say, 'Ta da!', and here they are. Perfect as little meaningful gifts for Valentine's Day, this is one of four books we have chosen that venture deep into the domain of love and relationships, while, of course, preserving the humorous, quirky and surreal 'Monkton' approach.
A fierce dinosaur and a 'lovely other' dinosaur meet and find lots of things to like about each other - he is tender and funny, and she smells so nice. But their differences start to creep in: like his being distant and her keenness for shopping! Thankfully love prevails and they live happily ever after, standing on the hill, feeling the warmth of the sun on their backs. 32pp, 138mm x 170mm, illus. in b&w, hardback, 2004
