What’s this? Is this my Shoggoth? It sleeps beneath the sea,
It’s bigger than a mountain, and it dreams of you and me,
If he wakes up, the world will end; all life laid waste in dread,
So let’s just sneak off quietly and leave him tucked in bed…
No, this is Great Cthulhu, the Spawn of the Stars. This is not my Shoggoth.
Where’s my Shoggoth?
A children’s Cthulhu parody as picture-book written by me and illustrated by Adam Bolton.
This is available from booksellers and comic shops now, published by Archaia Entertainment. Here are a handful of reviews:
“It really doesn’t matter if you have kids or not, Where’s My Shoggoth is one of those books you can’t help but enjoy. There is a joyful glee that oozes from every page. Bolton and Thomas remind us that sometimes you can find all kinds of fun in the creepy corners of our world. Simply put, Where’s My Shoggoth is a book you can’t miss.”
10/10 – Aaron Duran, Newsarama
“It’s a book you’ll happily put on your child’s shelf alongside Winnie the Pooh, Dr. Seuss and anything Sandra Boykin writes. This is a book that would make Maurice Sendak and Shel Silverstein proud.”
Jonathan Pilley, Omnicomic
“…just right to snuggle up with your budding young mythos investigator on a dark and stormy night.”
Jason Cranford Teague, Wired
“…a pre-Halloween treat for horror fans no matter what their ages, and perfect for the Lovecraft lover in your life.”
BottleImp, Ain’t It Cool News
“This glow-in-the-dark stocking filler draws its inspiration from the works of HP Lovecraft, and treats that elderly (and difficult to get into) work with a joy-filled heart and a tongue rammed firmly into its cheek… This is a firmly recommended gift for anyone in life who has a taste for the bizarre, or if you fancy a pretty-looking and personality-filled book to show off to your friends.”
Ed Fortune, Starburst Magazine
There’s a website all about it: wheresmyshoggoth.com, and a teaser video (the music and voice is mine, too):
