Booklist March 15, ; With GhostopolisBad Islandand the very recent Ratfist still practically hot out of the oven, TenNapel has hit a prolific stride, turning out stories featuring whacked-out science, organic weirdness, and a hefty emotional heart.

The first book in the Nnewts series follows the story of Herk, a lovable Nnewt who longs for stronger legs, something his mother and father wish they could give him. Personalize Common Sense for your family. It’s his sons birthday and he wants to buy him something great but he can’t afford anything. This book shows yet again that TenNapel has done neither.

Review: Cardboard by Doug TenNapel

It’s a strange premise for a story, but I noticed that TenNapel dedicated the book “to the Chestertonians,” which, I think, is actually the key to understanding the crisis of the plot. When Reese is forced to go on a boating trip with his family, the last thing he expects is to be shipwrecked on an island-especially one teeming with weird plants and animals. The next door neighbor drove me nuts! Huge pools of creepiness! The story is unique and truly creative.

After a 4th grade student came in and said she loved this book we had just put it on the shelvesI decided to make this the next graphic novel to read. Now the Nnewts need a true hero to step up and save the day before it’s too late! There are a couple touching moments, but mostly the book is what I think the author intended for it to be- light, fun, easy, and enjoyable.

When the alignment is irregular, disturbed, or even completely disconnected in works such as V for Vendetta by Alan Moore and David Lloydor, or American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang the works are more complex and difficult to read and understand.

Loneliness, grief, and fear show up throughout the story in heartbreaking quiet ways and not so subtle ways.
