NEW! 10th Anniversary Edition.

Updated artwork for a more media-centric modern world and yes - you guessed it... even more creeping vines!!

(NOW AVAILABLE!)  A young boy discovers that lounging on his favorite sofa playing videogames around the clock is not all it's cracked up to be. His lack of attention to life's basics such as bathing, good food, fresh air, sunlight, and old fashioned exercise wreaks havoc on his young body, and before long our little lad finds himself a prisoner of his own designing, as well as the fascination of many an onlooker as he becomes literally joined at the hip with his increasingly disgusting environment.


After watching the snowstorm of the season blow into his neighborhood, a young boy wakes to find his town literally buried beneath a mountain of snow. Possibly stuck inside his house for the rest of the winter, survival questions of every shape and size race through his mind- including one that tugs at his thoughts to the very end of his adventure. The Question is a wild journey through the mind of a child, with an ending so honestly relatable, you can't help but smile.
