“So I’ve written a children’s book. The story is confusing and frightening, the artwork is terrifying, and while I’m quite certain it contains a message or moral or some such, I can’t for the life of me parse out just what that message or moral or whatnot might be. This is why I don’t write children’s books.” –Brad D. Sibbersen

Willoughby Winston Winthorpe White finds something unusual on the ground and picks it up, which turns out to be the first in a series of miscalculations that leads him on a terrifying existential adventure. A children’s book most assuredly NOT for children, The Preternatural Plight of Willoughby Winston Winthorpe White addresses alienation, social anxiety, and perhaps something even more profound. Or maybe it’s just a plain-old-fashioned surrealist nightmare. Perhaps it’s up to you to decide for yourself.
