  1. Great review! I also have wanted to get to this. Maybe I’ll read it with my daughter for my own little I Read It challenge later in the month. That would be perfect, actually, because I don’t think she’s read it yet, and we could snuggle up and look at the pictures together.

  2. I wasn’t sure what I would think about a graphnic novel so I really liked/appreciated your review of it. I’ve only read one gn and it didn’t mesh with my brain. However! THat said – this particular book is getting rave reviews everywhere and I’m becoming more and more (and more and more) curious about it!

    GREAT review and thanks for posting it!

  3. I looked at this at the library the last time I was there and turned it down because of the comic book approach. I may have to rethink that now and try it out! Thanks for the review. 🙂

  4. This sounds like a very unique book. I’ll look for it next time I go to the library — though it sounds like one likely to have a waiting list! Thanks for this review.

    This is one reason I love 5MFB…I probably would have passed this one by, but your review has me interested so I’ll have to add it to the list! 🙂

  6. I shall put this one on my TBR list and borrow it from the library. I will look for the illustrated version. Thanks for your review and bringing it back to my thoughts.

  7. I’m so glad you opted for this one– my son and I both adored it. You picked an exact passage that I also paused at when I was reading. Just a beautiful book all around. The words and the pictures flowed into each other, it was almost as if I could hear a score playing in the background!
