Bless you, TOON Books, for the lovely box of new graphic novels! You publish some of the best highly illustrated kids' lit out there.
Written and Drawn by Henrietta, a TOON Book by LINIERS, is my favorite of this bunch. "A box of colored pencils is as close as you can get to owning a piece of the rainbow", Henrietta tells her cat, Fellini. Henrietta sits down to write and draw the amazing story of "The Monster with Three Heads and Two Hats." We see Henrietta's drawings and we see her reactions to her own imagination and the whole thing is fun and funny and delightful.
Flop to the Top!, a TOON book by Eleanor Davis & Drew Weing. Wanda is a Superstar and she knows it. When she goes online and posts a picture with her floppy dog, Wilbur, the Internet goes crazy. Wilbur is a HUGE hit. Wanda is not happy for his fame. Young readers will get a kick out of attention hog Wanda's disappointment and of Wilbur's response to fame and fortune. The ending is super cool, too.
