Product Details


★ “Drawn ‘with a deft hand that could convey the speed of hurdling space projectiles,’ Guillaume Perreault’s The Postman from Space is the jocular story of Bob, a spacial postman who is really quite ordinary. . . . Perreault makes excellent use of blank space to keep his illustrations uncluttered, his panels drawn in a thin, uneven black line with many pages free of panels altogether. He makes the art all the more dynamic by visually differentiating Bob’s new delivery stops with individual color palettes. The Postman from Space is an imaginative graphic novel perfect for both solo and shared reading experiences.”—Shelf Awareness, Starred Review

“Light and spirited, the book dazzles, especially in its final pages, which carry a warm optimism about life that’s cheery and instructive. The Postman from Space is a brilliant, funny, and heartwarming tale.”—Foreword Reviews

“The worlds created here are delightfully unusual, transporting readers to planets full of intriguing and inquisitive inhabitants. Each individual vignette contains interesting visual details to be explored on second readings. An early elementary tale fit for all ages that serves as a reminder that trying something new can bring delightful and unexpected results.”—Booklist

“A visual feast to remind kids that new experiences and challenges create memories that last a lifetime.”School Library Journal

“The drawings are so masterful that they become a sort of understated joke. The more marvels Bob sees, the more desperate he is to end this day of mishaps. But even Bob has to pause, a few pages from the end, and admire the sheer beauty of the world outside his window.” Kirkus Reviews

“This is a younger comic with a gentle lesson of trying something new. It’s easy to forget about comics for those younger readers sometimes . . . it’s essentially a short story for kids. It all boils down to getting out of your comfort zone and how that often isn’t a fun experience at first, but can grow on you.” A Fuse #8 Production
