Meet illustrator and author Landis Blair on Oct. 26th at Barbara’s Bookstore in Vernon Hills, as he talks about his book The Envious Siblings.

Landis Blair interweaves absurdist horror and humor into brief, rhyming vignettes at once transgressive and hilarious.

Inspired by the dark imagination of Edward Gorey, “Envious Siblings” is a twisted and hauntingly funny debut. These charmingly perverse creations take ordinary settings—a living room, a subway car, a playground—and spin them in a nightmarish direction.

“Envious Siblings” heralds a brilliant new cartooning talent, and will captivate readers who have thrilled to the lurid fantasies of Roald Dahl, Quentin Blake, Charles Addams, Shel Silverstein, and Tim Burton.
