Whenever I happen upon this book in my apartment, and I'm not doing much of anything, I tend to pick it up and read the entire thing. This probably takes about an hour. It makes for an hour of astonishing contentment. I try to get other people to read it, but it never takes. I can see how it could come across as kiddy and maudlin, but I prefer wide-eyed and sensitive. So I'm a sap, is what I'm saying. Also, it's Canadian, and that's always weird. And there's a comfort with nudity here that's alternately jarring and refreshing. Obviously I still haven't pieced together what it is I like so much about this graphic novel, which may explain why I keep turning back to it. Please, someone, read it and like it. Validate me over here.
