This remarkable book has been unavailable for nearly a year. Now, Baby Tattoo is thrilled to announce the renewed availability of this popular title that has been virtually ignored by big retailers. Animus is the story of a little girl’s encounters with a vicious dog. The book utilizes a unique mix of traditional paintings and cleverly animated pop-up elements to bring its characters and their emotions to life. Ken Johnson, writing for the New York Times, praised Ms. Hong’s “expertly realized retro-modern style,” and commented that “the paintings are beautifully made and the imagery is mysteriously touching.” Readers will relate to this story¹s well-intentioned protagonist, and to the notion that some bullies are destined to remain bullies no matter how hard one tries to change them. Family Friendly.
