Boris and Bella is about a messy monster named Bella Legrossi who lives next door to a tidy monster named Boris Kleanitoff. Needless to say, they don't get along. Chaos ensues. I won't beat around the bush here — this book is about me and my husband. I'll let you guess who the neat one is and who the messy one is.
Gris Grimley illustrated this book. His work is utterly grotesque, gruesome, ghastly, horrifying, shocking, and downright scary. So of course I absolutely adore him.

Ian Lopez and his animation students at NatColl Design School in New Zealand did this animated retelling of the book. It is amazing — http://vimeo.com/36924753 .
