The job of the skin is to keep it all in....And never let anything show.
On the island of Here, livin’s easy. Conduct is orderly. Lawns are neat. Citizens are clean shaven—and Dave is the most fastidious of them all.
Dave is bald, but for a single hair. He loves drawing, his desk job—and The Bangles. But on one fateful day, his life is upended...by an unstoppable (yet pretty impressive) beard.
An off-beat fable worthy of Roald Dahl and Tim Burton, The Gigantic Beard That Was Evil is a darkly funny meditation on life, death, and what it means to be different—and a timeless ode to the art of beard maintenance.
