I know that it says that this book is for 4-8 year olds, but it's not. They won't get it, and will be quite bored. You need the imagination of a teen or adult to fully appreciate the deeper meanings.
Having never picked up a graphic novel, its less than 100 pages so Im not sure novel is the correct word, before I had no idea what I was in for, but if this is typical of the genre, I am a huge fan.
Short tales packed with great imagery, superb graphics, and lasting memories of great adventures and bittersweet moments. I dont think I am ever going to forget the poem, about poems. Incredible.
The book is designed for the 12 and older set and trust me, the stories are not just for the young, even those of us that have young, can get a whole lot out of these stories. Definitely a book that will stay on the shelf for a long time and brought out again and again when I need something to remind me of the truly important things in life.
The book has something for everyone, take a chance, you wont be disappointed.
