1 Review
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.

These days he can most often be found drawing illustrations, making animations ? or watching Star Trek.
