Dark, intense, hard to push through at times, and so well written. But hard - hard to get into, because Drew is not inviting, and hard to finish once you know where the story is taking you.

I enjoyed the world and quirks of the story, but never quite clicked with the characters. Lovely writing and atmosphere, the museum was fascinating, but the plot was a wee bit predictable (although perhaps not if you haven't already read dozens of mi...more

Floca's charming illustrations perfectly match the endearing nature of the true story - an elephant seal who, against the odds, keeps swimming back to her favorite spot near a riverbank in New Zealand. The book, like Elizabeth, is lovely.

A fascinating story of how the author connected with animals (the only times he didn't stutter) and grew up to work with jaguars. Some of the pictures are gorgeous and moving, while in others the insets felt choppy and distracting. There's a very bri...more

Not quite wordless, and not at all your typical graphic novel, but those two descriptions are better than anything else I can come up with. Most pages are four horizontal panels of watercolors - sometimes monochromatic, sometimes saturated, all evoca...more

A cute story with illustrations that just beg to be looked at again and again. Also, I love Maria's modern-but-cozy house and wouldn't mind moving in. Fabulous detail, often with pages split horizontally to show both Maria and Mouse Mouse's worlds. T...more
