Ivy and Sprout are curious about the shard of stained glass they found in the woods. And while their friends have many suggestions as to what it is, it isn’t until they visit Wart, the town’s librarian, that its secrets are revealed. Wart shares with Ivy and Sprout the story of the old kingdom, how the korgi’s came to korgi valley, and the evil that destroyed the old kingdom. Ivy and Sprout leave Wart’s happy with their new found knowledge. But evil still lurks around the old kingdom and danger...more
I eagerly await each volume of this title almost as much as my daughter does. The third entry in the series focuses on answering some of the questions and solving riddles that have surrounded the world of Korgis and Mollies from the beginning. The flashback into the history of this land was most definitely unnecessary. The strange creatures that live in this world don't need origins, in my opinion, but the back story didn't detract from my enjoyment of the series either. The world created by Sla...more

Man, I thought the first two were good, and then I read this one! The plot just got so much more interesting! The suspense until the next one is published might just kill me! Ah! Also, I just love all the visual sight gags - my favorite being the poor character who lost his eyeball in the first book, and has been the "post script" of each of the three books in an adventure to try to recapture his rolling, escaping eyeball. This one gave excellent back story that showed how all of the characters...more

The third Korgi book: A Hollow Beginning, harkens back to the adventure of the first Korgi book. Complete with a one-eyed porcupine who knows Archery and an old library inside a tree, this book embodies the spirit of fantasy- and it's a definite improvement from the second book. In this book, we learn about the beginnings of the Korgi Hollow- of two evil princes who are greedy for power, and use the fire-breathing power of the kidnapped Korgis for evil. Ivy and Sprout learn about this history be...more
This next volume starts where volume two left off, with the discovery of the castle image. Ivy and Sprout wish to unravel its mystery. In her search she meets the librarian, who is the narrator, and he tells them a fairy tale; which makes this a fairy tale within a fairy tale. For this part the art style changes into a more cartoony look.

Third installment of the Korgi series, and here we get some of the history of the Korgi and their relationship with the Mollies, as well as of the ruins of the castle on the cliff. Plus, more of Wart! I like this series far more than I ever thought I would, and I'll be excited to see the next volume out, whenever that happens. :)
seems like forever since korgi 2. worth the wait. great book, even thoughi'm a samoyed/husky fan i have a place inmy heart for corgis they are beautiful, intelligent animals! Christian Slade does them well. being wordless, the really young can "read" this
Oh, wonderful! We get some of the back story of Korgi Hollow, and it is full of supercreeps and scary monsters! I love the balance between CUTE CUTE CUTE cuteness and really nasty monsters. Everyone who is, or was a child should read these books!
Although each volume of Korgi can be enjoyed as a stand alone story, its clear that they are all connected chapters of a larger story. Here we get some back story for the world of Korgi, as always with lovely artwork. Can't wait to see where we go from here. I need more Korgi in my life.
As a boy growing up in New Jersey, Christian Slade carried his sketchbook everywhere he went. It was said that he sometimes lived in another world, and it was this other world within the pages of his sketchbook that inspired him to draw from his imagination and the world around him. After thirty years, not much has changed. A former Disney animator and currently a full-time freelance illustrator,...moreMore about Christian Slade...
