Check Out My Ass!

few reviews have appeared of the new book, The Golden Ass, which I illustrated for author Mark D. Usher.

Of my contribution, The School Library Journal says, "Motley's pen-and-ink illustrations are terrifically detailed and cartoon like and are reminiscent of John Tenniel's work in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland." They also say the book is "perfect for humor-loving middle schoolers."

Vermont's Seven Days Review called my illustrations "cleverly allusive."

A starred review in Kirkus says, "Motley's elaborate illustrated initials and pen-and-ink drawings add satiric bite," and calls the book, "an entertaining romp, even without the raunchy bits."

One can find it at Barnes and Noble and Amazon and, who knows?, maybe your local bookstore.
