    Lorena Alvarez has produced a vibrant, yet sinister dreamscape of a graphic novel and one which resonates so much with the constrictive nature of a prescribed education and the apathy of our hand-held virtual lives. This is a beautiful and important story which celebrates imagination and creative th...

    A painfully adorable little book that made me squee more than I am comfortable with. I want every page framed and on my wall. The characters have a gorgeous, wide-eyed Pixar quality to them and the colours are dazzling. The composition and use of white space is phenomenal and really helps to make th...

    Beautiful vibrant illustrations in this children's graphic story / comic. I picked this up as part of a reading challenge, one task of which was to read an "all ages comic". It is nice that the author is from Bogota, Colombia (as I have never read a children's book from there) and apparently this st...

However, when I started to read I discovered that th...

The cover and summary made me think this was a children's book, but as it went along and became more and more dark and creepy, this struck me as being more suited for teens. I was hoping for a resolution at the end, yet ended up disappoi...

    Hmmm...what an oxymoron of a book this is. It is a picture book that is a set up like a graphic novel. It is a children's book that is actually quite sinister and scary. It is vivid/vibrant/bright/beautiful and dark/creepy/scary/confusing. I understand why my ten-year-old gravitated toward this eye ...

    This is by far one of the most beautiful graphic novels I have ever read and I would love to have some of these pages as posters for my walls but the story itself was disappointing. The ideas presented were intriguing but I feel that the author didn't take it very far to the point where it felt like...
