Adult Storytime

Finished June 27
Mr. Fooster Traveling on a Whim: a visual novel by Tom Corwin, illustrated by Craig Frazier
This is a lovely book, and the illustrations are beautiful, almost like woodcuts.
Mr. Fooster travels with a bottle of bubble soap in his pocket, and uses it when he feels the need.
His travels don't have a particular destination and while he notices things as he walks along (things adults sometimes forget to notice) he also reflects on things. His reflections include musings such as "Who figured out how to eat artichokes?" and "If the brain is made of 80 percent water, what might the ocean be thinking?" which made me muse as well.
He takes things as they come, and adjust to the circumstances he finds himself in.
I found myself mesmerized by this book, and hope there will be more.
