Stats, schmats. We all know that numbers can be fiddled or tweaked or interpreted to back up pretty much any argument. But when it comes to cold hard sales on a minute by minute basis, you just can't argue with Amazon!
Today (for possibly a limited time only - but who's counting) Monkey Nuts and the Diamond Egg of Wonders has leaped into the big time and planted it's sequential feet firmly in the top fifty bestselling children's graphic novels at a respectable 46!
Let's take a look at what that means...
Firstly, joining this club has placed us alongside dear friends like Jamie Smart with 'Find Chaffy', Garen Ewing and his wonderful 'Rainbow Orchid' books, and the mighty 'Mezolith' by Ben Haggarty and Adam Brockbank. We're directly flanked by Kazu Kibushi's highly successful Amulet series and some old chuffer names Hurgo or Hugo or something.
To be rubbing shoulders with the likes of Schultz, Goscinny, Uderzo and Jeff Smith - no matter how fleeting an experience it may be - is pretty wonderful so a HUGE thank you to everyone who helped make this an extremely memorable Wednesday!
Keep up the good work and we may even have a stab at the top twenty!
