About this product
- DescriptionThe Legendary saga, of The Book of Poems. Once, there was poetry, and the world languished in darkness. But one fateful day, in the thirteenth century, a peasant named Willin stood up and began to recite the first ever poem, in an attempt to save his favorite pig from evil tax-gatherers. Alas, one of these evil men stopped him before he could speak, but Willin was, nevertheless, the first poet. Join Willin, Futon, Sir Richard Langley, and a cast of other wacky poets in 'The Book of Poems', a collection of ten short stories that tell the legend of how poetry came to be, and how it has evolved throughout time. China, Turkey, and Great Britain, are but a few of the many countries visited in this tale, of a book that changed the world as we kw it. A book, that changed history...
- Author BiographyJose Ruiz is an alarmingly young fella, being only twenty-two years of age, and has been writing since he was six years old. The dominant theme in many of his books is comedy, although he does not consider himself a humorist. He prefers to think of himself as a writer of modern-day fantasy, exploring what would happen if magic and myth really did exist, and how people might deal with it. All of his lengthier projects (bar one) explore this theme, and are largely serious stories, that while not real (due to all that darn magic), try for as much realism as possible. They can be sad at times, or emotional, or thought provoking, but he nevertheless, always put in a bit of humor, because humor makes the world go round. In his spare time, he's a computer game designer and farmhand, living right here in lovely Southern California.
