Product Details


★ ”[A]n illuminating ode to the enduring power of storytelling in this freewheeling graphic novel adventure through the stacks . . . thin, intricate linework paired with a monochromatic palette that shifts between warm and cool tones to demarcate day and night impart mood and tension to the supernatural chaos. Via playful interweaving of literary references and puns, Lincoln pays homage to classic tales and the characters who populate them. All told, it’s a heartening tale of personal growth, mutual appreciation, and the unbreakable bonds of family, wrapped in a visually captivating package.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

★ “[A] love letter to libraries and to literature, Lincoln’s absolutely delightful graphic tale incorporates influences from many recognizable literary work . . . The fluid artwork features scribbly lines, interestingly laid-outpanels, and creative use of a strikingly unusual color palette . . . Charming, highly original, and sure to secure its own place in the graphic canon.” —Kirkus, starred review

“[A] wonderful adventure filled with fantasy high jinks, snarky middle grade comments, and plenty of literary references that any library lover will appreciate. But the real star is Lincoln’s artwork—his classic yet cartoony Quentin Blake–inspired style brings the book to life with its many illustrations. The vintage feel of the character design pairs well with the many classic literary elements and gives a timeless feel to the piece as a whole. Magical and inventive—a great adventure.” —School Library Journal
