Beanworld

Series by Larry Marder. Milwaukie, OR: Dark Horse Books, 2009

These books contains adventure; a thoughtful look into the meaning of life, love, and family; sing-song-dialogue; and invigorating word play.

The fun begins with the title of the first book, “Wahoolazuma!” to the names of his characters (such as Mr. Spook and Professor Garbanzo), to his Chow Band songs, to his playing with familiar and newly-coined words, and just doesn’t end.
