“Flyboy Action Figure Comes With Gasmask” by Jim Munroe

This book is original, funny and set in Toronto, which makes it great on three counts. The author, Jim Munroe, is an inspiring story. You can read more about him on his website (No Media Kings) but the jist of Munroe’s story is this: He had a deal with HarperCollins and when he found out Rupert Murdoch, the scary guy who runs FOX, owned parts (or the whole of) HarperCollins, Munroe said “f-this” and started his own publishing company. Pretty cool. And he used to (maybe still does?) live in the Annex. I also used to live in the Annex. That’s why him living there is cool. Just so you know. ‘Cause…um…ya. Hmmm. (shoulder shrug and awkward walk away)
