Edited By: Chris Duffy
Expected Publication: 9/24/13
From favorites like "Puss in Boots" and "Goldilocks" to obscure gems like "The Boy Who Drew Cats," Fairy Tale Comics has something to offer every reader. Seventeen fairy tales are wonderfully adapted and illustrated in comics format by seventeen different cartoonists, including Raina Telgemeier, Brett Helquist, Cherise Harper, and more.
Edited by Nursery Rhyme Comics' Chris Duffy, this jacketed hardcover is a beautiful gift and an instant classic
I thought this was a great compilation of fairy tales turned comics! It gives a wide variety of different tales, from the Brothers Grimm to lesser known stories. I thought that was a brilliant idea, because it gives children a look into a more variety of fairy tales.
The art work was magnificent! I am always blown away by graphic novels and comics because of the artwork, and this book was no different! We got to see different cartoonists depict the fairy tales. And I think that each had a different quality to enjoy. It added something new to each of the stories, even ones that we all knew already!
To name a few things I enjoyed about this work specifically, I will start with Emily Carroll's illustrations. I thought they were beautiful! And because of that, look forward to seeing more work by her. In addition to that, I enjoyed the story titled "The Prince and the Tortoise." I thought it was funny, as well as having a great moral for children to take away from it. Also, to highlight a tale I personally had never heard of before reading this comic, "The Boy Who Drew Cats." It was unique and cute, something a child would enjoy!
I'm not going to give this book a rating here on my blog, because beyond possibly being too old for it, I thought it was great!! I think it would be perfect for children who are starting to read, and a great way to introduce them into the world of fairy tales!
HAPPY READING!! :)
