Honeycomb, Hardback Book

Honeycomb Hardback

Illustrated by Charles Vess

Narrated by Joanne M. Harris



An astonishing, richly interwoven story from #1 bestselling author Joanne M.

Harris (The Gospel of Loki, Chocolat), beautifully illustrated by the multiple award-winning Charles Vess (Stardust, The Books of Earthsea). Long ago and far away,Far away and long ago,The World was honeycomb, we know,The Worlds were honeycomb. The beauty of stories is that you never know where they will take you.

Full of dreams and nightmares, Honeycomb is an entrancing mosaic novel of original fairy tales from bestselling author Joanne M.

Harris and legendary artist Charles Vess in a collaboration that's been years in the making.

Dark, gripping, and brilliantly imaginative, these magical tales will soon have you in their thrall. Each original tale is a small piece of the larger picture - a clue or a message, a theme, or a warning - interwoven with the tale of the Lacewing King as he travels the Worlds and encounters a multitude of characters: a toymaker who wants to create the perfect wife; a princess whose heart is won by words, not actions; a tiny dog whose confidence far outweighs his size; and the vengeful Spider Queen, and deadly Harlequin . . . Turn the page, and be swept up in the adventure. Perfect for fans of Sandman, The Djinn in the Nightingale's Eye, Piranesi and The Midnight Library, this tour de force is a beautiful achievement, from two exceptional creators at the top of their game.
