(For Kids and Adults)
Sock Monkey relates the adventures of the titular sock monkey, named Uncle Gabby, and a plush crow named Mr. Crow. Despite being toys, they are able to move, think, talk, and eat, as are most of the other toys in the series. The books are notable for their intricate artwork, dark humor, and quaint, vaulted dialogue. In contrast to the scabrous humor of his weekly comic strip Maakies, Millionaire has said that “Sock Monkey is me trying to rise above all that bullshit, to be more poetic, looking at the bright side, remembering the things that used to delight me as a child.” At the same time, “the main theme to all the Sock Monkey books is the crashing of innocent fantasy into bone-crushing reality.”
1. Sock Monkey: The Inches Incident

4. Sock Monkey: A Children’s Book (2001)
Tony Millionaire’s Eisner-award winning, multi-Harvey-Award nominated Sock Monkey returns in his first-ever full-length book! A mix of comics and illustrated text, this book tells the tale of Uncle Gabbie the Sock Monkey’s origins and how he came to live with the little girl, Ann Louise. Have you ever wondered why Sock Monkey seems so creepy and lovable at the same time? Well here’s the answer!
The Sock Monkey and the other toys in the house marvel at the prismatic spectrum shining on the parlor floor. They notice that the dazzling colors are somehow emanating from the beautiful glass doorknob on the front door. Winter turns to spring and the apple tree at the front of the house sprouts its new leaves, casting a warm green shadow on the door. But something happens to the doorknob, it seems to be broken, the magical light show hascome to a disheartening end.
The Sock Monkey returns home from the University where he has become a Master Poet dedicated to the Science of Un-naming Objects. He embarks on a journey of sentimentality as he rediscovers his childhood home. However, things are not as he remembers them, and he is subjected to an avalanche of heart-breaking realization.
Uncle Gabby, everyone’s favorite sock monkey, is back in a new adventure that takes place in a Victorian mansion big enough to fit two stories at once. The stories start out separate. Pages on the right tell the story of a sock monkey getting snagged on a tack, slowly unraveling as he rambles around Ann Louise’s mansion. Pages on the left tell the story of Ann Louise finding a ball of yarn and knitting it into a sock monkey. As the stories converge, so do the pages, and soon Uncle Gabby’s adventure is off at a galloping pace.
Two stories in one. One is the story of a sock monkey helping a displaced spider search for a home. Will the spider’
s new home be a weathervane? A dollhouse? A goose-wagon? Sadly, no, no, and no! The other story tells the tale of Ann Louise’s grandfather, who smashes down trees throughout the woods and leaves the birds and squirrels homeless. Grandfather needs the lumber for something he’s building. Is it a new home for the spider? The answer is in the pages of these interlocking yarns.
(For Kids and Adults)
Famous for his bad-boy comic strip, Maakies, and his children’s books starring benign versions of the strip’s antiheroes, Millionaire here essays a third stream of his peculiar creativity in a graphic-novel marchen, or Germanic folktalelike narrative. The title character is a truculent little manikin made by mice out of garbage.
Billy Hazelnuts transmutes nursery rhymes and the golem myth into a storybook about Becky, girl scientist, her friend Billy Hazelnuts (who was created from cooking ingredients by tailless mice), and their journey to find the missing moon while battling an evil steam-driven alligator with a seeing-eye skunk.
2. Billy Hazelnuts and the Crazy Bird
Millionaire’s backyard golem returns in this winning follow-up to 2006′s Billy Hazelnuts. Rescuing the family cat from an attacking owl, Billy finds he has caused the abandonment of a newly hatched chick. This foundling attempts to hungrily devour Billy even as he quests forth to find the “crazy bird” ’s mother.
3. Billy Hazelnuts + Billy Hazelnuts and the Crazy Bird

2. Mighty Mite the Ear Mite
Mighty Mite unfolds via a uniquely inventive formal approach: the left-hand pages tell Gabby’s story, the right-hand pages our eponymous hero’s, and not before the last page does the intertwined fate of both become clear. Mighty Mite’s pages are presented in luscious full-color, Gabby’s in stark grey. Presented as a lovely yet inexpensive hardcover objet d’art, Mighty Mite is a wonderfully unique and elegantly crafted story for all ages and a perfect introduction to Millionaire’s absurdist blend of gung-ho humor and exquisite pen and ink illustrations.
