Man, that was one depraved story. Yeah, but I liked it!
After reading this book, I will never think about squid in the same way ever again. Squid Lincoln was my favorite by far and the drawings by William Pauley III were really great too.
I like that Jordan Krall can make fun of himself. Unlike the other books I've read of his, this one has a more patched together feel, especially at the end: "I still don't get the ending. Pancakes, something about death, squid, and a desire to sink one's teeth into smelly shoe leather." I didn't get the ending either Jordan but with descriptions like that, I'm sure glad I went along for the ride!
