Meet Mister Mess. Back in 1992, I collaborated with an ambitious young couple who wanted to create a series of books based on their characters, the Little Applehead Gang. Each character was going to get their own book. It was a fun project. I don't know if they ever published the other books because I lost contact with them soon after. But, Mister Mess --- though truly a mess --- (I still blame his possibly neglectful mother) --- didn't want to take a bath, eat properly or even go to bed on time. And check this out!!! I swear it wasn't intentional, but Mister Mess is wearing Bart Simpson's outfit!!!!
