Lordie Jones is a twisted tale about a boy who tried to cheat the Tooth Fairy by painting grains of corn with liquid paper. In revenge the Tooth Fairy puts a living pig fetus in Lordie Jones' bum. Not necessarily a book for children, but fans of Marc's work will appreciate the hatch style drawings and trademark absurdist storytelling style.

26 May 2005 at the Lanes Gallery, Hazelton Lanes, Toronto.
The launch was a huge success. The Lanes Gallery was a fantastic venue for lounging around, enjoying some tea and cookies, and the giant "rug couches" were the perfect spot from which to catch the show.
Thank-you to everyone who came out and made the events so awesome, and especially to Bahman, Neil and Dave for all the hard work and generosity!
