Guild of Geniuses, The Guild of Geniuses, The

Written & Illustrated by Dan Santat

If Dan Santat were a cartoon character, he’d have ideas and characters and jokes constantly circling his head in goofy thought-bubbles. He’s THAT creative! You can feel the energy vibrating in the lines of his illustrations and in his compositions. But he also has a rare ability to generate stories from the open-hearted outlook of a child. This story is about friendship, and it reminds me of no book more than another story about a fellow and his best buddy, Officer Buckle and Gloria. . . .

Are you having a bad weather day? Try Dr. Lancaster's Portable Weather Machine. Want to rise above it all? Check out Dr. Torrance's Anti-Gravity Belt. Yes, the Guild of Geniuses have created many fantastic inventions to satisfy humanity's most pressing needs…

So when Mr. Pip the monkey seems a little down, his best friend Frederick knows just who to call. The Guild introduces Mr. Pip to other monkeys (to cure his loneliness) and sends him to the moon and back again (so he feels important). But it turns out Fred may hold the solution after all -- and he doesn't have to be a genius to be a good friend.

This is the book for any child who’s ever felt a tiny bit neglected, and any parent who’s ever felt a tiny bit clueless. Check out the illustrations for yourself – they’re chockablock with witty detail!


"Kitschy fifties design and appealingly drawn characters make this a promising debut from Santat. Readers should keep an eye on Santat's attention-getting art and sympathetic monkey hero." --Publishers Weekly

". . . Santat is freshly his own." --Booklist

". . . Children will chuckle over the urbane visual humor in this promising debut." --Kirkus Reviews
