The Gigantic Beard That Was Evil

by Stephen Collins - £18.99  Vintage (Jonathan Cape Ltd) (2013)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9780224096287 | ISBN 10: 0224096281

The job of the skin is to keep things in...
 
On the buttoned-down island of Here, all is well. By which we mean: orderly, neat, contained and, moreover, beardless.
 
Or at least it is until one famous day, when Dave, bald but for a single hair, finds himself assailed by a terrifying, unstoppable...monster*!
 
Where did it come from? How should the islanders deal with it? And what, most importantly, are they going to do with Dave?
 
The first book from a new leading light of UK comics, The Gigantic Beard That Was Evil is an off-beat fable worthy of Roald Dahl. It is about life, death and the meaning of beards.
 
(*We mean a gigantic beard, basically.)
