About This Book

Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore

The Gimme: You’ll likely share Sloan’s affection for his characters. Charming and witty, a rare side benefit of Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore is that other than a few off-hand mentions of boobies (friend Neel’s company has developed the software for anatomically-correct modeling of them), it’s clean, so you can let your intelligent children read it.They will not only be entertained, but painlessly learn interesting stuff about museum storage (really), typography, and the history of printing.
