The Umbelievable Umbies are genetic anomalies who bloom like weedflowers. Set out on a genetic drift, the Umbies think, "If only if" and the twin sisters who share a single heart embark on... More > an archetypal orphan's journey. In this dystopic world, people have the ability to genetically modify themselves to perfection and rejects are flushed away. The Umbies are set adrift and discover their super power of eyesight. On their quest to find another heart, they meet other mutant anomalies along the way like Amoeba boy, Mouse boy, and Skelly. They also try and join the circus of Dr. Gene Splicer and get jobs detecting bacteria at Dr. Dina's Bone and Organ Farm. The magical and delightful illustrations in this adult fable and child's fairy tale help to reveal the world and wonder of the bond between sisters and what it looks and feels like to be less than perfect. It is an allegory of all ages. So if you like the black and white gimlets of Gorey, the bizzarro of Oz and a slice of Seuss, this story is for you.< Less
