Adventures in Cartooning: Christmas Special! Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Christmas is coming! The Magic Cartooning Elf and his friend the Knight join forces to make a Christmas comic for Santa to give to all the boys and girls in the world.

As with previous installments in the Adventures in Cartooning series, Adventures in Cartooning: Christmas Special is a zany adventure story seamlessly integrated with nuggets of practical cartooning tips: how to write, illustrate, print, and distribute comics! It's a terrific holiday gift, and after reading it, kids will be inspired to make more gifts…with comics!

Review:

"Kids are asking for high-tech gifts instead of old-fashioned ones, and Santa is not all that happy about it ('Instead of toys, we elves write code,' a helper tells him. 'Then we connect to the server... and upload!'). Santa hits on the idea of a Christmas comic book, enlisting the help of a certain elf and knight (seen in the two previous Adventures in Cartooning books). Along the way, readers get an uproarious lesson in what makes a great — or at least salable — holiday story ('This book is as good as the Scrooge — and the Grinch!!!' boasts the knight. 'I don't know about that, but it'll do in a pinch!!!' responds the elf) and how comics are made. As smart as it is funny — and it's very funny. Ages 4 — up. (Sept.)"

Synopsis:

Christmas is coming! The Magic Cartooning Elf and his friend the Knight help Santa make a Christmas comic. But will kids put away their iPads, smart phones, and video games long enough to read a book? 

The latest in the beloved Adventures In Cartooning series, Adventures in Cartooning: Christmas Special will inspire children to pick up a pencil and draw up a snow storm! No charger or batteries are needed for this terrific holiday gift.
