When two simple hobos-a pigeon and his elephant buddy-are wrongfully
accused of murdering Mr. Mouse Mouser, the consequences are dire.
'secretimes delineates an alternate universe-a world that fa- vors the
rich and grinds the poor and unfortunate into paste. Each page is a
brightly colored nightmare populated with vapid celebrities and lazily
Keith Jones creates a pop parable that is stunning and alluring
to look at and hellish to live in. Graffiti- covered walls, melting
neon figures, idiosyncratic sound effects, and anthropomorphized bros
meld together in this satire of modern life and mod- ern values. His
sense of humor is manic, snick- ering, and surreal, each line imbued
with a rich sense of irony. Jones's pacing gives each page a frenzied
paranoia that belies his charcters' fantasies of utter control.
'secretimes is darkly funy in Jones's irresistibly offkilter signature
other story before or since. This charming edition is the ideal
gift book for children of 5 to 55.
