PRAISE FOR Viminy Crowe’s Comic Book:

“This wholly imagined fantasy is well–fleshed out and keeps the pages flying with its extremely clever story within a story . . . A thrilling and imaginative reminder that adventure and magic can be found anywhere, especially where one least expects it.” —Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews

“The numerous black-and-white comic panels help bring the story to life for traditional and graphic novel fans, also bridging the two settings and the story-within-a-story narrative structure. Comic geeks or not, many are likely to enjoy this humorous and action-packed adventure.” –School Library Journal

“The mix and match of the comic book with a story book is a unique approach to children’s literature. . . . The sheer imagination of the authors wins the attention of the reader with this page turner . . . Highly recommended for recreational reading, genre study, discussion groups. An excellent addition to a school or classroom library.” —Resource Links

“[A] well-paced, entertaining adventure story in which comics play an integral role. In fact, Viminy Crowe’s Comic Book celebrates the genre in a way that hasn’t been done in children’s lit before: by combining the format of a novel with that of a comic strip and housing it between two hard covers for the enjoyment of youngsters everywhere.” —The Montreal Gazette
