by Nathan Laxague
This little book of whimsical verses by Nathan Laxague really does tickle the funny bone. A very fat snake stuck in the drain, or a telltale fart – just about any humorous or off-the-wall reality might be Nathan’s subject, in styles ranging from Edgar Allen Poe to vintage Dr. Seuss to…pure Nathan Laxague.
