Well worth a re-read every so often. A simple story with twists and turns...a touch of Dali....a touch of Kafka...a touch of Roald Dahl with the wisdom of the ancient philosophers!

Stupid book. Did not at all live up to the reviews or my expectations.

Mr. Fooster is truly a beautiful book. The simple story follows no rules, taking you on a series of journeys where you never know what's around the next corner. There is nothing predictable about it, each page reveals another little surprise, from a bubble that turns into flying fish to the lead character sprouting roots and becoming a tree. Corwin delivers a message without preaching - it's silly and serious and most importantly, fun to read.

The illustrations are delightful. Craig Frazier is brilliant, his illustrations bring the words and Mr. Fooster's clever world to life with elegance and charm. I'm definitely a fan.

This is a wonderful gift book for adults and kids. I'm stocking up!

Tom Corwin's Mr. Fooster Traveling on a Whim is the quickest of reads, a hundred odd pages, half of them full-page illustrations, the other half light on text. It's a sort of fable. The eponymous Mr. Fooster goes for a series of walks in what feels like a dream. Strange things happen to him that don't quite make sense, in the way of dreams. He befriends a giant bug, for example, and blows a big bubble that turns into a drivable car. Along the way he ponders questions like Why is yawning contagious? and How come you never see baby pigeons? The moral of the story is banal: basically, one shouldn't lose one's open-mindedness or sense of wonder lest one become rigid and miss out on life's bounty. Unless I'm missing something. Perhaps I'm just too old and embittered to appreciate the book. Probably in final form (I read an advance copy) it will be a pretty book: you can see the quality of the illustrations and hear selections of the text at the book's accompanying web site. But while the short text is trying to be meaningful, to me it seems not deep, but merely precious

I wasn't sure where this "visual novel" would take me. But take me it did. Mr. Fooster seems to have the kind of time I always wish I had -- free, open, abundant. He uses it well and during his wanderings, discovers life lessons, natural truths and things that make you breathe deep. The illustrations are extraordinary - complex, fluid, full of surprises. I'm sure Mr. Fooster has more stories to tell us. For now, I bought this one several times to share with friends and family.

Mr. Fooster reminds us of that child like and innocent fascination with the world that many of us loose sight of as we grow old. When Mr. Fooster ponders questions like: Why is yawning contagious? How long do frogs' tongues get? Why do grown-ups loose their sense of wonder? I feel as though my inner child has been stirred to life again.

Tom Corwin's fantastic narrative coupled with Craig Frazier's rich and whimsical illustrations, leaves the reader with the enigmatic if not totally inspirational postulate: "Think yourself free."
SupperDom
A quick, but mostly aimless read. Dude decides to go for a walk and strange things happen. The book is designed in a way to make you think there is some underlying deep, spiritual message but the surreal absurdity distracts too much for this one to be taken seriously.
Adulthood can be such a lonely place. As children we had the luxury of losing ourselves in fantasy. Stories were a major part of our lives as children. This amazing masterpiece will give any reader of any age the experience of being a child again. It will spark the memories for the older readers and will help to broaden any child's imagination. This little gem is like a warm blanket on a winter's day. Close your eyes and imagine! Meet your new best friend, Mr. Fooster.
