The Unsinkable Walker Bean by Aaron Renier
The Unsinkable Walker Bean

GraphicLady, January 1, 2011

Graphic novels are books too! And this is a great one. This graphic novel has it all--amazing art and design, an original and exciting story, and suitable for younger readers while still being engaging enough for adults.

Walker Bean is a young boy who idolizes his remarkable grandfather, who tells him fantastic tales of adventure. Then one day it turns out that one tale may be true, and it is up to Walker Bean to save his grandfather's life by returning a cursed skull to the bottom of the ocean. Along the way he must survive pirates, soldiers, and shipwrecks, solve cyphers, and discover a shocking truth about an ancient horror! This top-notch story is paired with amazing art, full of rich detail and a few hidden surprises for observant readers. A wonderful book that truly exhibits the potential of this storytelling format.
