Really? The FIRST Steampunk Picture book?

First – I’m crafting this post just so I can say WHOOT! Janet K. Lee blurbed my book! Who’s Janet Lee?

This is the art of Janet Lee:

Sweet, no? If you know Steampunk or comics or graphic novels – then you know Return of the Dapper Men. Her art. Is FINE!

So here’s what she had to say about Her Majesty’s Explorer: a Steampunk bedtime story:

 The color pallet and style called to mind several books I liked to read as a child–enjoyably retro-and the verse carried the stories along beautifully.  One of the things I always look for when buying a book for my own children is how easy it would be to read the book multiple times each night, and this absolutely passes the test!

I love it! No, wait – SHE loves it.

The other interesting thing that HME has in common with Return of the Dapper Men, is that when you go to amazon and search for children’s books and Steampunk – at least at the time – these two books were the only ones that came up. At least that was true when I started. As Dapper is more of a graphic novel – I totally feel justified in saying this is the FIRST Steampunk picture book.
