Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this highly anticipated third graphic anthology of short stories, some of the best artists in the field show their talents. Includes the full-color work of top animators at Pixar, DreamWorks, and other studios, emerging Web cartoonists, and established comic book and graphic novel creators.

Review:

"With truly stellar art from masters of the field, this fantasy anthology is a must for comics connoisseurs and a delight to readers who like pretty stories. Fanciful tales of children, monsters, fairy-filled forests and imagined worlds create an enchanted escape. Some of the stories are entirely wordless, while others are told from a child's point of view. Tony Cliff's 'Old Oak Trees,' recounts how the author's grandmother found a sort of 'Wind in the Willows' gang of talking animals who live and love and play cricket in the local woods. Ben Hatke's 'The Edge' follows two brothers who find out who really lives at the edge of the world. Kean Soo's almost heartbreakingly winning 'Jellaby' is an account of a girl and a monster at a tea party. Multiple Academy Award — nominee Bill Plympton tells the story of 'The Cloud,' a little puff of vapor who just wants to float into representational shapes, but is squelched by its elders. Editor Kibuishi's contribution is also charmingly drawn but far from lighthearted; it details what happens when boys playing soldiers turn into men. Flight mixes the influences of comics, animation and classic children's illustration into a timeless fantasy. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
