Last Saturday, I reviewed two fantastic early reader graphic novel from Toon Books -- NINA IN THAT MAKES ME MAD! and BENJAMIN BEAR IN FUZZY THINKING. Booking Son and I are HUGE fans of this entire series, and these two books were especially cute.
Summary: What makes Nina mad? Lots of things—lots of little, everyday things, frustrations that all children will recognize. But Nina knows how to speak her mind and that makes her feel much better.
In a series of humorous vignettes, Hilary Knight, the artist who brought the enormously successful Eloise to life, applies his magic to a text by veteran children's book writer Steven Kroll, and brings to life a spunky character who will show young readers how to articulate their feelings. -- Toon Books
Summary: BENJAMIN BEAR DOES EVERYTHING IN HIS OWN FUNNY WAY, whether it's drying dishes on a rabbit’s back or sharing his sweater without taking it off.
In this series of gags starring a very loopy bear, Philippe Coudray creates a zany world that makes kids think and solve puzzles, drawing all readers into the game. -- Toon Books
