Dog That Bit Son/First Hand

Dog That Bit Son/First Hand is actually two books in one. Set up like an ACE Doubleback, the stories start on opposite ends and meet in the center. Dog That Bit Son is a short tale of a boy and the dog that bit him. It is told in an abbreviated but repetitive form that is reminiscent of the childhood classic "The House That Jack Built". Much like a children's book, it utilizes bold large type and simple line drawings as the illustrations. First Hand is a short tale based on a surreal and gory nightmare. It tells of an artist gone mad believing she is creating art by mutilating her fingers and hands. The drawing style is graphic and realistic.
