Book 1

Book 1

Interesting and enjoyable.  It was a stretch for me because of the graphic format but I wanted to read it to be able to recommend it to students.  And I will certainly recommend it. I know several students who will become faithful readers of this series. 

This book is told in a graphic book format along with regular pages of words.  I liked that.  Too much comic book style just tires me out.  I like the flow of words and sentences and paragraphs.  This graphic novel did not have too much comic book style for me.  But, the text is not to much for those who find reading a chore.  The illustrations told much of the story and make the reader aware of things not told in the pages of text. 

The setting is somewhere (hopefully a long time from now) when humans no longer inhabit the earth.  Some animals can talk and even learn to read.  Thelonious is a chipmunk who gets carried away from home by a flood.  He ends up making friends with a porcupine who lives in a bookstore and a female bear who built and flew an airplane.  Their goal is to get the bear back to Fog Mound.  Of course, there are those with evil intent who want them stopped. 

I can’t wait to get this one into the hands of the students and I can almost bet they will be sending me back for the next two in the series.
