Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Edwin Mullhouse, a novelist at 10, is mysteriously dead at 11. As a memorial, Edwin's best-friend, Jeffrey Cartwright, decides that the life of this great American writer must be told. He follows Edwin's development from his pre-verbal first noises through his love for comic books to the fulfillment of his literary genius in the remarkable novel, Cartoons.
