Jim went to public school and was a terrible student. So it was a real shock to everyone when he wrote "Felines of New York" and it became a New York Times Bestseller. But it was a shock to no one that the book is half pictures.
Here's some of Jim's other work, some published, others rejected by the most prestigious publishers in the game.
