First Impressions 9/19

Peter Panzerfaust #6 - Not as intriguing as the previous issues, but still entertaining. I’ll be reading the next one, and the one after thata.

Adventures in Cartooning: Christmas Special GN - Cute! Encourages kids to send a comic to Santa, rather than a letter.

The Hypo: The Melancholic Young Lincoln - Favorite book of the week! Lovely art and compelling storytelling; things that are not always present in biographies.

Mr. Big: A Tale of Pond Life - I was a little disappointed in this book. It does teach kids about ecosystems, but in a rather sideways manner. I’d be curious to hear kids’ reactions to it.

The Secret of the Stone Frog - Reminiscent of Little Nemo, Alice in Wonderland, and the Dapper Men. Surreal art, and an abrupt end to the story. I enjoyed it, but didn;t feel compelled to take it home.
