Space Dumplins
Space Dumplins | Craig Thompson
Highly acclaimed graphic novelist Craig Thompson's debut book for young readers about a plucky heroine on a mission to save her dad. For Violet Marlocke, family is the most important thing in the whole galaxy. So when her father goes missing while on a hazardous job, she can't just sit around and do nothing. To get him back, Violet throws caution to the stars and sets out with a group of misfit friends on a quest to find him. But space is vast and dangerous, and she soon discovers that her dad is in big, BIG trouble. With her father's life on the line, nothing is going to stop Violet from trying to rescue him and keep her family together. Visionary graphic novel creator Craig Thompson brings all of his wit, warmth, and humor to create a brilliantly drawn story for all ages. Set in a distant yet familiar future, SPACE DUMPLINS weaves themes of family, friendship, and loyalty into a grand space adventure filled with quirky aliens, awesome spaceships, and sharp commentary on our environmentally challenged world.

A few #spaceoddity graphic novels I pulled off the kids' shelf. I haven't read either. ?
I tend to prefer "quiet novels about ordinary life" and few of them seem to take place in space. ?

Space Dumplins by Craig Thompson is a vibrantly colored, action-packed space adventure about friendship and a young girls' determination to save her family.

When this graphic novel was recommended to me, I immediately requested it from my local library. I'm so happy that I was able to get my hands on it so quickly!

Well, this certainly isn‘t Blankets. This middle-grade graphic novel has some good stuff - great art, interesting characters, intriguing setting. But then it has really weird elements like whale diarrhea thrown in. I liked the family dynamic and the friendships, but this book tries to do too many things, and it ends up not doing any of them expertly.

A whole lot of weirdness, but cuteness, but weirdness...🤔 I liked it overall! Probably hitting the hay here before too long. Today was a long, stressful day with Irma, and last night I didn't sleep until around 3 am. I'm exhausted! Thanks to everyone who checked in with us during the storm! Y'all are truly the best 💗

Yesterday's comic read also suits today's #inagalaxyfarfaraway prompt for #maybookflowers. I didn't know that Craig Thompson had written this all-ages comic set in space. Violet's dad, a space lumberjack, is missing and she sets off to find him. It's a cute colourful scifi comic aimed at a younger audience but still fun for everyone else. Great illustrations too!

Really weird! Whales, diarrhea, fashionable aliens, clunker vehicles, chicken evolution, creepy surgery -- odd, odd, odd but a fun space adventure for kids. The color brings a new whimsy to Thompson's lovely rendering of characters and settings. And i love seeing his decorative motifs in space! #mommyreads #comics #ebook
