Zogg, The Cuddly Menace

We have this book in our house! Note to self, sleep with one eye open from now on!

The cuddly menace, "My Golden Book About Zogg," which is really hysterically funny, is the work of cartoonist and writer Jason Yungbluth of Rochester. He has a huge underground following and a bunch of bizarre comix out there, including "Weapon Brown," -- grownup "Peanuts" in an apocalyptic world where the "bald-headed son of a bitch" crawls the scum with his bionic dog looking for the little red-headed girl.

Funny, we have this book too. Whenever I read it, it strikes me how times have changed: most adults wouldn't understand the lyrical beauty in that book nowadays; for kids, it just seems way too wordy. I love the sense of awe that this book brings me.

And now, I'll be keeping my eyes open for Zogg as I'm reading it :-)
