Take a trip into the deep, deep woods with this original all-ages graphic novel.
Billy Hazelnuts is back for the first time since his acclaimed 2006 Eisner Award-winning debut. Life has settled back to normal in the old house. Becky and her mom are getting used to having Billy around, as he performs various household chores, utilizing his amazing strength. Nothing could be better, aside from a jumpy relationship with the cat. until one day Billy hears screeching in the back yard and runs out to find a very large owl attacking his housemate. “I hate that cat, but it’s our cat!” yells Billy, and chases the owl off.
Billy soon discovers that the owl he has just scared off has left an egg in his nest. When the egg hatches, it’s up to Billy to reunite the baby owl with his mother, and the two head off into the deep, deep woods in search of her. The resulting adventure is a crazy potion of all-ages fun, humor, thrills and chills like only Tony Millionaire is capable of.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
If you haven't yet read Tony Millionaire's "Drinky Crow" comic strips or checked out his other Billy Hazelnuts story, you're missing something in your life. Millionaire's mix of bizarre humor, skewed Wonderland-like worlds, and the old, weird America is a heady brew not to be missed. This new chapter in the story of the addled and easily aggravated Billy Hazelnuts (a golem built by mice) is laugh-out-loud funny and comes with a moral to the story--not unlike a script for Sesame Street that's been hijacked by late-night humor writers.
