At first glance, I was wondering what was going on in the illustrations of UK illustrator Gemma Robinson. Marmite! Shoulda known! I’ve become familiar with this British oddity courtesy of my significant other, who just loves to smear the questionable stuff all over his toast. So heck, a whole book full of adorable illustrations about marmite and all its very useful applications. I might even find myself rethinking my tepid relationship with that sludgy, musty smelling stuff.
