THE NIGHT RIDERS
Back in print at long last.
In Matt Furie’s glorious debut, a nocturnal frog and rat awake at midnight, share a salad of lettuce and bugs, and strike out on an epic dirtbike adventure toward the sunrise. As the friends make their way from forest to bat cave to ghost town to ocean to shore and beyond, new friends are discovered, a huge crab is narrowly avoided, and a world is revealed. Packed with colorful characters and surprising details on every hand-drawn page, The Night Riders is the ideal book for anyone who has ever wanted to surf to the mountains on the back of a dolphin.
Praise for Night Riders:
“Stunning… The Night Riders is my favorite book of the year. It will soon enough be referred to as a classic, and I hope it spawns many sequels.”
“Kids will dig it, but so too will adults.”
—Benn Ray, Owner of Atomic Books
“AMAZING. This book just zoomed to the top of my all-time-favorite-kids’-books list.”
“Presented in a mix of sequential panels and full-spread views, this easy-to-follow debut tale is rich in both drama and sights that are less dangerous-looking than delightfully strange.”
“Oddly heartwarming [and] filled with unexpected turns… On every page, Furie imagines ever more pleasantly surreal plants, trees, and animals.”
“Wonderfully written and illustrated.”
