The internationally bestselling author of Griffin & Sabine returns with his newest literary mystery—a charming assemblage of his illustrated stories. These invitingly strange “drabbles,” each paired with its own comical creature, each total exactly one-hundred words. His tales, enjoyable in any sequence, compel the reader to bask in ambiguity—or even help to solve the puzzle therein.
Little is known of the fascinating manuscript that Nick Bancock has come to possess. It was discovered in an attic in North London, stuffed into a battered cardboard box, and unceremoniously delivered directly to Bantock.
Inside the package lay one hundred evocatively absurd stories, one hundred humorous drawings of quirkish glyphs, and a cyptically poetic note signed only as “HH.” (Perhaps it may be the well-known, eccentric billionaire, Hamilton Hasp?)
In these stories—each consisting of precisely 100 words—strange creatures slip through alleyways, and eerie streets swallow people whole. Taken altogther, they may constitute a puzzle that no one has been able to solve thus far. Could there be one missing story?
For those perceptive readers with a curious mind, the celebrated author of Griffin & Sabine cordially invites you to find your own path through his beguiling conundrum of drabbles—or even to contribute one of your very own.
