"Wake up and smell the coffee " --Patrick McDonnell (Mutts, Cartoonist)
THE BOOK OF JOE follows the journey of Joe, a coffee cup who experiences a series of hapless relationships with other beverages. Following these tragic break-ups, albeit hilarious, Joe spirals into a self-destructive state as he struggles to move on. That is until he befriends a monkey named Oscar.
A coffee cup with a big heart. A world with harsh realities. A monkey with the key to life. The Book of Joe is a story of overcoming heartbreak and adversity told through raucous humor, endearing characters and bold black & white illustrations. Sharing the nostalgia and comfort of a children's book, The Book of Joe adds a grown-up twist to a familiar format reminiscent of a time gone by.
