Mcbarron Truly a wonderful book that opens into new worlds. After reading this book we rented a DVD of Georges Mieles (spelling?) films and heartily enjoyed them! My 9-year-old and I read this book simultaneously and he kept asking me... "what part are you on?!"

Recommended for any francophile.....

Isabel I think it was a great book to. The drawings we're so intense!


Dash It was great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kara I don't usually like graphic novels. But I love the way it was done. Having the pictures and text on different pages really helped my reading experience because then the pictures and text are not in competition. I actually feel that the pictures helped telling the story! Incredible for me.

Faith Quick i loved this book too! at first i did not understand what was going on but then i found myself captivated by the story! and my imagination went wild! i found myself more into the visual interpretation of emotion then before! it is a fun book to read/watch!

Wonderful book! Loved the pictures, they were really detailed.


message 7: by Ann (new) - rated it 5 stars

Ann This was so creative and interesting! I haven't read anything like it before, but I, too, found the pictures helping to tell the story instead of just "illustrating" it. And ditto, I became totally captivated!!

Wonderful! The pictures helped me understand better and they were really cool and detailed. Mostly why I like this book is because it has the pictures and text on different pages. You can focus on one thing without being distracted by the other.


Kelsie This was a great book in my opinion. The drawings made this book come to life in so many ways. It was a simple book to read, and I've read in many of times. I think it would be a great book for everyone to read.

i think the author did a great job with this book, the pictures made me have a better picture of everything. I completely loved it.


Ondrea i really enjoyed this book... i kind of like the pictures being a big part of it because it kind of adds a special effect in a way... i would highly recommend this book to anyone!!

REDD A very good read. Hopefully the movie adaptation would be good too.


MizziQ There's a movie adaptation?


message 17: by REDD (new) - rated it 5 stars

REDD Yes....Martin Scorsese...coming in 2012 i believe.


MizziQ Ooh there is! I don't like the actor...or the 3D...but I'm still excited. :) Haha


message 19: by no (new) - rated it 5 stars

no Loved it! I really loved the drawings too! The story was just fantastic. I'm pretty excited about the movie. It was so real reading it. You could practically picture it in your head. :)

Leah Listened to the audiobook before getting the book - so first time missed out on the wonderful illustrations!


MizziQ NO! WHY DO THEY EVEN BOTHER TO MAKE AN AUDIO BOOK?!?!

:> Mental picture is enhanced, especially for the kids who listen to it and have hard time with reading skills. It's also a great incentive to get kids interested in reading, instead of sitting in front of the time-wasting tv.


Lucien yes such a good book! <3
love it! :)


message 24: by Cassandra (new) - added it

Cassandra I love it so much I think in later times i will read it again!!!


MizziQ I give it to all my friends. Just got back from a b-day party. That was the gift. :)


Joanne I bought it for my grandsons, 7 and 9. They like it a lot.


message 27: by Jtl (new) - rated it 5 stars

Jtl awesome book


Richard it was beautiful, but the plot lost the way a touch towards the end - the chase was relatively shoe horned in rather than having dramatic reason and it all snapped shut a little too neatly. it was gorgeous to look at though, and my 6 year old is enjoying me reading it to him


Elizabeth Loved the drawings. Awesome book!


Starburst this was a good story, but looking at all the drawings were kind of tedious.


message 31: by Zi (new) - rated it 5 stars

Zi I loved this book too! I'd heard of it before, but watching the teaser trailer made me get it from the library, as I was intrigued by the automaton (I'm fascinated by them, after playing the game Syberia a few years ago).

It was awesome, and I'm excited for the movie, but doubt I'll get the chance to see it in theaters (it's so expensive to go now, makes me sad).

Agreed! I loved examining the illustrations.


Ashley F My friend and I just picked this book up off the shelf in our school library last year. We thought it was one of the best books ever! I can't believe that the movie is coming out soon! We are deffinatly going to see it together! I thought it was so cool how it told the same story in two different ways! Deffinaly one of my favorites!
