Jeanette - Special Orders in Manchester

After a long day of cruisn’ through the various adventures in life (Indiana Jones has nuttin’ on me), nothing hits the spot like…chocolate. But once you say chocolate that’s all you need say. So these pages are dedicated to a few of my other passions: alligator wrestling, bull riding, reading books (big books, little books, picture books, no pictures books, even little black books), listening to music (from A to Z and back again) and a variety of other things. So take a minute to browse some of my faves and I hope they become some of yours.

This powerful adult graphic novel about contemporary issues is done in a poetic manner. Hard hitting text where one word says a thousand things.
