When a gapper gets near a goat it gives off a continual high-pitched happy shriek of pleasure that makes it impossible for the goat to sleep, and the goats get skinny and stop giving milk
Gappers are these cute but horrible orange ball things. You have to see them. They look like a Pokemon that might have appeared in Naked Lunch.This book is what children’s books should be. It is zany, with wonderful characterizations of the rigorously unimaginative neighbors of the man character. Also, like the TV show Fraggle Rock, it presents a fantastical ecology which is an allegory for real-world problems. The art is superb as well, using a style reminiscent of a collage. I’m not sure I agree with the reviewer’s comparing it to Ukiyo-e however.
