Early 70s France never looked so good. A new middle grade graphic memoir comes to us. A perfect new addition to every bookshelf looking for something familiar and odd all at once.
A smartly plotted dip into the Gullah-Geechee culture of early 60s rural South Carolina, this book weaves family, history, and spooky stuff together like a braid.
In all honesty, I don’t think I can do this book justice when I tell you about it, but I can at least give it my best shot. It deserves only the best.
Today we discuss a book that takes risks, makes mistakes, and comes out memorable in the end. The right snail with the right heart in the right book for the right reader.
Funny and smart, with a sly sense of humor that’s entirely its own, prepare for a series that you’ll want to see much more of in the future.
This book is an utter joy. One of those titles that lives up to, and then proceeds to exceed, the hype. Heck, I’ll say it. One of the best wordless books I’ve ever read. Full stop. Period.
Oddly sweet, melancholic, and peaceful, this is poetry as remembrance as well as healing. It is also very much one of a kind.
The publisher sold this book to me as Doll Bones with a trans narrative and maybe that’s the best description you should hope for. Smart. Original. Necessary. Thank god we have this book now.
Funny and gross, this book is an honestly inventive way of spelling out how the simultaneously disgusting and delicious (eh?) fly is an integral part in not only the food chain but also the world as we currently know it.
Read this book to a child when you yourself need to remember that the world is full of horrible, wonderful, complicated people and that there are millions of their stories out there just waiting to be learned.
