by James Kochalka Only Kochalka could produce a book like this and get away with it; and not only that, but get it printed in a full color, glossy, squarebound edition. What is it, exactly? Well, basically, it takes the implicit sexuality of the funny animal genre and makes it explicit. Sort of. There's no pornography here, but rather overt, undisguised sexuality. Yes, it's pretty bizarre, but it is instructive in that it addresses the issue of funny animal sexuality (and its corollary, childhood sexuality) in a manner that seems entirely uninfluenced by Crumb, whose interpretation seems to have been taken as the last word on the subject by too many. It is an intriguing if somewhat disturbing book. Needless to say, it is not appropriate for children.
