Although the illustrations are stylistically similar, this book was nothing like Robot Dreams. It was a series of vignettes about animal characters doing a variety of things including hosting dinner parties, resolving competition and conflict, and finding cute solutions to cute problems that were a little too cute for my tastes. I would definitely classify this as a kid’s book, though I know classifications pertaining to age/reading “levels” can be somewhat arbitrary and traditional. Varon inclu ...more

The addition of paper dolls and postcards pushes this one to 3.5 stars for me.

I like Varon's style (Robot Dreams, Bake Sale), though this one was neither as moving or humorous as I found those titles. Also, I have a strong preference for color illustrations, and these are mostly black/white, with a bit of blue (though the paper dolls are color).

Sweaterweather consists of many short stories, often where animals go shopping, and then resolve some soft of problem. Some of the stories have zero word
I liked this, but I definitely didn't love it. The interactive aspects (especially the postcards) were really appealing, but since I got it from the library I couldn't fully enjoy them. Sweaterweather is my favorite kind of weather, but the book just didn't live up to the fantastic title.
This is a collection of shorter, more experimental comics. Some of them I really liked, and some were just okay. I did think that there were some things in this one that just are not that kid-appropriate. But her illustrations haven't changed, and I just love them!
Cute, gets under your radar touching. The stories are very short, which makes it a ridiculously quick read. Definitely it would be more fun to own so you could cut of the paperdolls and postcards.
A wonderful book. Just goes to show you that you don't need words to get your point across, The Illustrations are wonderful. And a very funny book.
So funny and creative! I love her use of animals and food. The story with the raccoon protagonist is one of my favorites.

Sara Varon. Cute, but unique, as always. I wish I could use the stamps and the postcards. Write more, yo.
It's really sparse of words. suka banget pas bagian gambar yang dikasih warna biru... so creamy...
Adorable! And slightly weird, but mostly adorable, plus lots of scarves.

Quirky adventures of animal friends. For adults.
