In his new picture book, Etsy indie artist and Monkey World creator Matthew Porter creates a parade of colorful animals that trot, run, and scamper across the pages. A tiger chases a bear, which chases a pig, which chases a fox, and on it goes! To find out who is chasing whom, simply turn the page. Using bold colors and distressed pinewood, Porter creates texture and movement in his artwork. His unique medium puts him in good company with other popular indie illustrators such as Nikki McClure and Kate Endle.
"[Matthew Porter is] the undisputed king of the hipster board book genre." --School Library Journal
