The weekly post where I recap some of the KidLit books I’ve been reading. Ocasionally, I’ll also talk about some adult fiction books as well.
The cover of this book caught my eye at the library and I am so glad that I checked it out. I absolutely loved the illustrations. They are so layered with texture and images. It reminded me of diving in the ocean and having things like fish, shells or rocks come in and out of visibility as you swim along. The text is quiet, which went perfectly with this beautiful book.
I have not read any of the previous fox books, but we have been taking lots of trips to the skatepark this summer so this skateboarding fox grabbed my attention. It is really cute and has made me want to check out the others in the series.
Another creepy middle grade! I have really been enjoying this series and I cannot wait for the third book to come out in a few months. You can read my full review here.
Overall, I have enjoyed the entire Amulet graphic novel series. In this one, I was surprised and happy to see some of the subplots being wrapped up nicely. There is a lot to remember in the series, so I find myself needing to go back and reread the previous books, or do a quick cliff notes reading online. Can’t wait to see what the finale will bring.
