Staff Reviews


Living below the cushions and springs of your couch is the fearsome, eponymous Margarash. Margarash gathers our coins and precious detritus for his ever-expanding collection, and he will wreak revenge on those foolhardy enough to intrude on his realm, trying to claim what belongs to Margarash. When Collin, a resourceful, coin-collecting boy, insists on disregarding his parents' warnings about Margarash...well, I've already said too much. You will never again look at those dark recesses in your couch without a suspicious shiver. Building on Mark Riddle's layered, funny, and poignant story, Tim Miller conjures astonishing illustrations ready to lunge off the page--and drag you into the netherworld of Margarash. Did I mention there's a happy ending?

Description


A surprising book that is also a little scary and more than a little deep, Margarash is about a young boy and a seemingly-nasty monster who realize they need each other.

Mark Riddle is a Youth Services Librarian with a colossal beard. He was born in Australia, has lived in Taiwan and Turkey, and now resides in North Carolina with his wife, Kate; their cat, Warda Runciblespoon; and several fish and chickens. This is his first picture book.

Tim Miller is a creator of picture books. Snappsy the Alligator (Did Not Ask to Be in This Book), written by Julie Falatko, was his first book as an illustrator. Tim studied at the School of Visual Arts where he earned a BA in Cartooning and an MA in Arts Education. He lives in New York City. This is his debut picture book.
