Caught Creatures is the world's finest Monster Haiku book. Yes, that's probably the best way to describe it. It is full of monsters (mostly those that are caught), a Haiku for each one, and well, lots and lots of full color monster art. 48 pages, in fact. Is it for kids? Sure! Is it SCARY? Nope, not a bit. Is it for adults? You bet! Is it educational? There are lots of example Haikus in the book. Is it for fans of monsters or Halloween? Huzzah! Who wrote it? Daniel M. Davis. (The idea was from his wife.) "I created this book for my son Kaid" said Daniel Davis, the artist and illustrator of Caught Creatures. "He's inherited my love of monsters and the desire to hunt them down and capture them for their monster gold." "Though I wanted to make it for a kid, Caught Creatures isn't strictly a kid's book. It's full of references to old americana; video games, chopper bikes, old guitars, and vintage lighting. Most kids won't get it as much as their parents will... it's a wink and a nod to Gen X." Daniel goes on to say that "Caught Creatures is influenced by the 1970's as well as the Pop Surrealism/Lowbrow Art movement; Tim Biskup, Dave Wasoon, Junko Mizno, Mark Ryden, Bob Dob, and tons of other talented folks." Vintage toys, old cartoons, and sugary cereal all have contributed to Davis' unique and fresh vision.
