This week, I posted:
–Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge Wednesday– Read my reviews for:
–Celebrate This Week– This week, I’m celebrating various little things that made me happy.
[***] Stillwater the Panda returns for another round of lessons- this time about patience, sharing and kindness despite overwhelming odds.
[***] A playful easy word game for beginning readers. A silly question is asked and answers can be found in the playful illustrations or spelling out the different-colored text in a word.
[***] A beautiful imaginative take on the magic of books.
[***] A girl befriends the moon and worries when one night her nocturnal pal doesn’t show up. Playful illustrations and I love the depiction of the phases of the moon at the back endpaper.
[***] A sheep finds a crown and proclaims himself king of his kind. But the power gets into his head and starts handing out unfair decrees. A sudden wind of change will deliver an unexpected ending if not necessarily a satisfying one.
[***] Cute illustrations help young observant readers find the culprit(s) in each of the question asked.
This series is a great introduction to the talented graphic novelists featured in the books. However, I didn’t think fables worked well in this medium. Check out Fairy Tale Comics.
A little mechanic girl finds a lost robot. This new instant friendship is threatened not only by a big robot intent on bringing back the little robot where it came from but also by the girl’s jealousy when the little robots searches more of its kind.
Reminiscent of Disney’s Lilo and Stitch and Pixar’s Wall-E, this almost wordless graphic novel will appeal to young readers.
[Agatha Christie Reading Challenge][Off the Shelf Reading Challenge]
This is one of those books everybody seems to have read. I was approached twice by random strangers wanting to talk about it.
While I didn’t really get into it until halfway through and I found the ending rather anti-climactic, I really appreciated the originality and the scope and the experimentativness of it.
There’s usually a story-within-the-story in each issue plus some added documents to supplement the graphic novel story. The presentation was very stylistic as well.
I’m glad I read this even though it wasn’t my cup of tea.
