This is the most amazing kid's comic I've read in a long time, and I'm not just saying that because the author is the colorist of American Born Chinese. The artwork - gorgeous brown brushstrokes paired with wistful, cloud-like watercolors - is absolutely stunning. And the stories! The stories have this slightly nonsensical charm that'll knock the grumpies right outta ya.
Yes, Lark is a dear friend. But even if she were my worst enemy, even if she had punched me in the face and stolen my lunch money every day of my life, I'd still have to give this book props. My first-grader boy can't get enough of the fold-out page!
Check it out!
