Author-illustrator Matt Hammill has created a tongue-in-cheek adventure story where fantasy and reality merge, with hilarious results. The eponymous hero is an armchair explorer on a quest for a Lost Tablet of Illusion, stolen by an elusive beast. Sir Reginald's quest takes the reader on a journey through figments and flights of imagination on one hand, and through his mild-mannered home life on the other. Is that the deafening buzz of the carnivorous elephant beetle -- or Sir Reginald's alarm clock? Does the tiger-stripe viper lie stretched across his path -- or is it a sock? What is the nature of this Lost Tablet and its awesome power? As Sir Reg veers comically between worlds, the imagination emerges as the most powerful charm of all.

About the author (2008)

Sir Reginald's Logbook is the product of the clever mind and talented pen of Matt Hammill. The original mock-up of this story was unveiled at a student art show held by the Sheridan Institute, where he graduated with a degree in illustration. Matt grew up in the 1980s in Mississauga, Ontario, drawing video-game bad guys and digging for dinosaur bones in his backyard. These days he can most often be found drawing illustrations, making animations ? or watching Star Trek.
