Book Review: Last Night I Was A Magic Marker

Mudd, Jerry Q. Last Night I Was A Magic Marker. Northern South Dakota University Press, 2017, 3.14 pp., $15.92 hardcover.

Last Night I Was A Magic Marker attempts to combine the magic of the Harry Potter series with the surrealism of Roald Dahl. Unfortunately, it fails, and fails completely.

For starters, the illustrations (which compose about nine-tenths of the books) look like they were drawn by a drunk elephant with his eyes shut, using a broken ball-point pen.

However, I could be mistaken about all of this, since I didn’t actually read the book.
