why did nobody tell me the director of the Amazing Spider-Man films is called Marc Webb?
Tony Stark progress gif (eventually).
Not 100% happy with him, he still needs some work. And apparently I hate facial hair. HATE.
Okay, this is a children’s book. Okay, I was attracted to it because it’s purple and furry. Yep, furry. But it’s fast-paced, witty, and generally great fun. There’s a gryphon, a yeti, a witch-nanny, a lipstick-wearing tarantula, and a baby called Damp. There are Italian mobsters and computer hackers.
Not convinced? There’s also a dragon. Who doesn’t appreciate a book with a dragon?
“‘You’ve lost your father?’ muttered Tarantella through a mouthful of lipstick. She puckered up at her reflection with a kissing sound and continued, ‘How very careless of you… I ate mine.’”
"Damp stretched like a small starfish. Her parents on either side of her groaned and clung onto their tiny allowance of edge-of-bed."

”[…] when people tell you what to do it is usually confusing and does not make sense. For example, people often say ‘Be quiet,’ but they don’t tell you how long to be quiet for. Or you see a sign which says KEEP OFF THE GRASS but it should say KEEP OFF THE GRASS AROUND THIS SIGN or KEEP OFF ALL THE GRASS IN THIS PARK because there is lots of grass you are allowed to walk on.”
”[…] a murder victim is usually killed by someone known to them and fairies are made out of paper and you can’t talk to someone who is dead.”
"Eventually scientists will discover something that explains ghosts, just like they discovered electricity which explained lightning, and it might be something about people’s brains, or something about the earth’s magnetic field, or it might be some new force altogether. And then ghosts won’t be mysteries. They will be like electricity and rainbows and non-stock frying pans."
