Grumparar's the New Creatures, An Adventure and Field Guide by T. E. Breitenbach

At last we learn what those fleeting images of movement are, the ones you often see out of the corner of an eye, but which quickly disappear when you turn to look! They are the New Creatures. With the aid of the magical Grumparar, we join the author on his journey to the creature’s homeland where he befalls adventure, mystery, and narrow escapes, as he seeks to learn more about the host of funny, warm, and frightening New Creatures. And—as if that isn’t enough—along the way we find answers to many of life’s imponderables: how sneakers get holes, where houseflies go in winter, and how mountains talk to one another, to name just a few. The text is well-illustrated with dozens of creatures and maps, while an included "field guide" pictures and describes over 200 New Creatures. Conceived by artist T. E. Breitenbach, well-known for his humorous Proverbidioms series of paintings, this is an imaginative, allegorical adventure like none you have ever been on. So, sit back, put your feet up, and prepare to be entertained!

About the Author

T. E. Breitenbach is best known for his painting Proverbidioms, a raucous and comical depiction of over 300 common proverbs and clichés. He also collaborated with Jim Morrison of The Doors, before Morrison's death, on a painting intended for use on his An American Prayer album. Breitenbach studied architecture and fine arts (in an independent study program) at the University of Notre Dame and was the youngest person to receive the Rome Prize Fellowship in visual arts. Inspired by the castles of Europe, he returned home and began to build a studio/castle to house his art and eventually become a museum. Breitenbach went on to work in many other media too. Besides his illustrated fantasy novel, Grumparar's the New Creatures, he has written a book of painting secrets and two musicals (music and all), including Hieronymus a partly autobiographical story about medieval fantasy artist Hieronymus Bosch and his over-active imagination.
