About the Author

Tom Llewellyn is a writer, marketer, father, and letterpress poster artist in his hometown of Tacoma, Washington, where The Bottle Imp of Bright House is set. If he were offered a bottle imp, he'd turn it down. So many of his wishes have already come true that he doesn't want to push his luck.

Gris Grimly has been drawing since he was old enough to hold a pencil. Since then, his elegant, haunting, and critically acclaimed art has graced more than two dozen books including The Dangerous Alphabet by Neil Gaiman, a clothing line for a national retailer, and more. Gris lives with his family in California, where he is wary about deals that involve insidious little imps.

Reviews

"Gather your Dahl and Snicket fans . . . Llewellyn writes with an edge and with heart, and Grimly's loose ink-and-watercolor illustrations have a whimsical creepiness that matches the tone perfectly."--Booklist

"Exciting and irresistible, this effort casts a spell."--Kirkus Reviews

"Fans of Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach or Louis Sachar's Sideways Stories From Wayside School will appreciate Llewellyn's morbid sense of humor."--School Library Journal
