The 13 Clocks
By James Thurber
Introduction by Neil Gaiman
Illustrations by Marc Simont

Thurber’s satirical tale is “… a rousing concoction of adventure, humor, and satire that defies any conventional classification.” —Los Angeles Times

The Wonderful O
By James Thurber
Illustrations by Marc Simont

“… about a tyrannical pirate who bans everything on an island that contains the letter O—because his mother was once stuck in a porthole… Full of word lists and wordplay, with charming illustrations by Marc Simont, it is a verbally ambitious little classic for logophiles.” —The Sunday Times (London)
