THE BIRTHDAY ABC

This hilarious romp through the alphabet serves both as an introduction to the letters as well as a celebration of of the reader's birthday, featuring an array of remarkable animals in period costumes. The cast of characters includes the tall Giraffe, who has a long and throaty laugh, the crested Newt in his Sunday suit, and the grizzled Vulture, a vulgar chap with little culture.

But then comes the unannounced visit by Lady Hortensia Dogmont, Mugsy's mother-in-law from not-so-merry Olde England. Her mission to make "proper englishmen" of the twins sets up another American Revolution -- Uncle Mugsy style!

A note from the author

“It’s better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.”

Anyone who knows me knows I try to live by that motto. As a writer and creative artist I think there is nothing more important than creating things that are good, beautiful, and true. As a father I see that most of what is peddled toward kids is none of those things — and like any parent I know whatever my daughter or any child is exposed to should be something that is worthy of them. It should be something good and beautiful and true, something that they will want to pass on to their own children someday. So these three Mugsy books — illustrated by my dearest friend and creative partner Tim Raglin — are my most ambitious effort toward that end, toward lighting a candle in the proverbial darkness. I hope parents and grandparents everywhere will want to grab a candle and join us!
