Bravo, Frank Viva. And glub, glub, glub." - Lemony Snicket, author of A Series of Unfortunate Events "Truly heartbreaking!

About the Author

Frank Viva is an award-winning artist and designer who lives in Toronto, Ontario, with his family.

His art has appeared in many places, including regularly on the cover of the New Yorker.
