Awards

Winner of the 1999 Harvey Award for Best New Talent

Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Thompson has crafted an enduring fable in words and pictures — an alternative-comics answer to Saint-Exupery's Little Prince — that will charm anyone separated from a dear and loving friend." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Thompson presents this bittersweet and engaging story in black-and-white panels that flow and tip into one another....Solid storytelling is expanded by the images, resulting in a fully realized literary work." School Library Journal

Review:

"Originally published in 1999, this reprint represents the debut of another promising artist....For characters who must pursue their own destinies, love is as boundless as the sea." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Both funny and genuinely touching in turn, Craig Thompson's Good-bye Chunky Rice is an affecting meditation upon friendship, loneliness, and loss, all delivered with a real feel for the musicality of the comic strip form. This work sings and dances, and you could do a lot worse than to sing and dance along with it. Highly recommended." Alan Moore, creator of From Hell and Watchmen

Synopsis:

This stunning book-length debut is a quiet picture novella of a small turtle, Chunky Rice, leaving his home and his mouse friend, Dandel. A Dr. Seussian cast of colorful characters and lush cartoon-y brushwork shape this into a charming, profound tale of loneliness, loss, and undying friendship.

Synopsis:

This stunning debut novella from the acclaimed creator of Blankets is the story of a small turtle, Chunky Rice, leaving his home and his mouse friend, Dander. His is the classic journey to find one's self, and the deeper meaning of life.
