Joe Murray paints, writes and creates independent animated films which have shown at many festivals, including Sundance and Annecy. He is most widely known as the creator of the odd, Emmy-Award winning animated series Rocko's Modern Life. Joe, his wife, Carol, and their two daughters, Daisy and Casey, live in Southern California, with their three cats. One of those cats only has three legs. This is the second book he's written, but not the second book he's read.
Reviews - What do customers think about The Enormous Mister Schmupsle: An ABC Adventure?
Offering a deftly written story Nov 17, 2003
Offering a deftly written story, Joe Murray's The Enormous Mister Schmupsle is not your typical ABC book. It is a bit more involved than that. A group of young people race after a gigantic and very hungry cat while playing an alphabet game, in a whimsical tale distinguished by Murray's dramatically exaggerated yet brilliantly colored illustrations. Especially recommended for children ages 2 to 8.
