Summary of Synthesized Information.

Theme: to never judge a book by it's cover because there is a lot of unsuspected things that give it a dream like quality. These books throw off your whole concept of reality. It is so random and weird what you see in these books that it just seems like this guy is crazy.

Tone: the tone of this book is weird but funny because of the theme and the way that he could make a book without words. You can't understand these books because they are so weird. He makes his books seem like a dream with his illustrations.
