Adorable in a totally bizarre way. ( )

A golem, created by mice from garbage, befriends a young scientist in a fantastical world in this beautifully drawn graphic novel.

The mice in Becky's kitchen, tired of being chased by the cat, create a being out of garbage with a head full of flies to act as their protector. Becky, a young scientist, discovers the creature, and replaces the flies with hazelnuts. Billy, as he comes to be known, becomes entranced by the moon, and runs off to find where it sets. In doing so, he attracts the wrath of Becky's would-be suitor, Eugene. The three travel and battle across their fantastic world, where planets collide, ships walk and mice build men out of garbage.

The main selling point of this title is Millionaire's detailed black and white artwork, which is both fantastic and strange. The world of Billy Hazelnuts is like something out of a fever dream, but fully realized and magnificently rendered. The out and out weirdness and dark undertones of this book would turn off many casual readers, but those who like their comics with a literary flare will probably sing the praises of this for years to come.

The plot of this graphic novel somewhat ambiguous. Some mice that live in a small girl's house create this creature to kill the family cat, which fails. The girl then befriends the creature and they have a small adventure rescuing her friend. The artwork was decent, a couple interesting ideas her and there. this might be more enjoyable for children.
