    Island Book looked like it would be a very sweet and fantastical read, but instead, I got an art style I didn t enjoy, a narrative voice I found boring and slow, and a plot that meandered before firmly burying itself in the end I have no idea what has happened, or what the purpose of this graphic novel was I suppose it s one of those...

    What did I just read No seriously, I don t know The art style is cute, but I HAVE NO CLUE WHAT I JUST READ Is it a book about a journey Facing your monsters Finding friends from strange places No clue I m kind of flabbergasted that after all that I have no answers to what I read I don t know if the ...

    This is a book about what we know and don t know It s about assumptions, myths, and legends It s about the courage to explore, and the ways explorers bend the truth of their travels in the stories and poems they weave when they return home There is no curse, there ...

    Sola lives as an outcast within her small community on an island She is cursed that s what everyone says because a Monster came to the Island when Sola was a child everyone around her ran, but Sola alone stood before it, and it reached out to her The destruction left in the monster s wake, coupled with its interest in Sola sealed it the rest of the Island branded her As Sola reaches adolescence, she s curious what drew the Monster to her Tired of living with everyone s fear, and wanting answers, Sola leaves the island, taking to the open water As she travels, she discovers that the Island isn t alone there are new lands and people to meet.Island Book is Sola s story A quietly strong female protagonist, she faces adversity at home and has a curious streak that contributes to her own community s distrust and fear of her The plot meanders on a bit in spots, but is mostly a solid story about courage and curiosity about friendship and working together, and about opening oneself up to new ideas and experiences The characters are humanoid but not human the artwork is bright and the nature is beautifully depicted.The first in a new series, Island Book is a good choice for middle grade book discussion groups, too Ask kids if they ve ever felt like Sola, unable to change someone s mind or looked down on because of ...

    I ve been a fan of Dahm s work for many years now and count Rice Boy as one of my favorite books graphic novels ever, so I jumped at the chance to read an ARC of his latest work.I didn t know it was a middle grade book at first, and while it didn t bug me that it was, it definitely meant that the surrealness of Dahm s usual works was toned down Where the surreal illustrations and pop surreal color schemes dominant Dahm s webcomics, the surreal architecture wasn t there aside from some Kay Sage inspired architecture on the White Island and the color palettes were muted The color washing of the background sky boxes though were still inherently symbolic and thematic with the worlds, which was nice The artwork overall is also lovely in its own right, don t get me wrong It s just not the style I was expecting.The story itself was definitely on par with the standard questing tropes that Dahm s other works focus on, but with of a purpose and moral this time Sora has been cursed by the Monster and quests to go find it and learn why it singl...

    This kicks off with a whole lot of telling and backstory, which is disappointing, but still, I was interested in where this might go Somewhere around panel 40, this becomes interesting Luckily, with this simple format, you can progress to that panel quickly, so just hang in there through the rocky start The artwork is very simple and clean with mostly muted colors that I really enjoyed It gives everything a nice, moody feel There s actually a lot of visual depth in the scenes, and you can feel the action and motion in the drawings, especially in terms of the movement of boats and water Honestly, the artwork is probably my favorite things about this one In the first 40 panels, most of the characters look identical, so that is confusing However, the side characters from the first world don t really seem to have names, personalities, or much of a purpose, other than to interact with Sola, the MC, so once you figure out which one is Sola, the scenes start to make sense I think that the simple format and storytelling is good for the intended audience, overall This just completely lacks character development and clarity in the world building, other than what you can guess at from what you see in the artwork It basically becomes a long journey with multiple stops to add new underdeveloped side characters The dialogue tends to be a bit vague and often awkward or cheesy It doesn t always move the story forward effectively I have to confess that I liked the wordless pane...

    I was captivated by this gorgeous book The art is truly beautiful and imaginative with a dream like feel to it The use of panels and color is exceptional I found the story interesting and compelling, wanting to turn the pages to find out what happens next but also wanting to linger over the illustrations I m a bit amused by the variety of ratings for the book on Goodreads and while I can understand people s reactions to the ending, it is notable that those reactions underscore one of the themes I found the ending both oddly satisfying and thought provoking.There are several strong themes here friendship, teamwork, the crippling insularity that fear can bring, and ...

    Beautiful, strange, and perfect Told in the narrative style of a fairytale and dreamlike artwork, this was a fantastic little story I picked up on my lunch break and couldn t put down until I finished While I felt like the story...

    I especially appreciate the strong themes that are revealed through this quest, especially the power of fear to create a dominant narrative I wonder about the abrupt shifts or endings, which leave much unsaid and require the reader to infer or continue the story in th...

    A lovely middle grade graphic novel, I just feel like the author could have gone much in depth with the plot I enjoyed the mood and colors, and I liked the look of the different islands Also, I first thought that one of the protagonist s companions was meant to be a ninja turtle
