I knew this would be interesting and educational, but I didn't expect it to be so inspirational and beautifully written. It is a sweet book with gorgeous illustrations and a powerful message of reaching for, if you'll excuse the pun, the stars.

JackOBotts A great story! My son really enjoyed this one. 2d

Mehso-so

This book touts itself as “a devilishly funny collection of 101 comics that explores our most gruesome, hilarious, and bizarre fears....” Should be right up my alley. Totally inappropriate and darkly comic. Unfortunately, the majority of this book was eye-rolling silly, IMO. A few of the comics fit the description - sort of (the photo is of one I thought was ok), the style was good, and it was short.

Cinfhen I think I‘ll pass if that‘s one of the “better” ones 🙄 although the art work is pretty good. 1w
LiterRohde @Cinfhen Yeah. I was not impressed. It got a so-so for the artwork really. I think the problem was (and I forgot to mention this in the review) that the “fears” (if you can even call them that) were crowdsourced. So the author didn‘t even write the material. 1w
Cinfhen Oh well, at least you completed a challenge prompt 😃 1w
BarbaraTheBibliophage Hmmmmpppffff. Sorry it was a dud. But you can still count it—yay! p.s. crowdsourcing in writing is a lame gimmick by an author who isn‘t very skilled. Or is lazy. 🤪 6d

This book is amazing for so many reasons. It‘s written by Chris Hadfield (who also narrates the read along version), he has a pug, it includes the first moon landing and is amazingly illustrated by the Fan Brothers. Perfect for anyone who‘s afraid of the dark. 5/5 #bbrc #AtoZ

This was a wonderfully dark story! I love the character development of Maika, through the good and the bad, and Kippa was so cute 🖤 The story itself beautifully blended events of the past and present, and lessons about the lore of the world, so you could really imagine it. I can't wait to see where the story goes from here 😊

#WanderingJune Day 23: This is a strange little story from Argentina (#DontCryForMeArgentina) about a young boy who is afraid of the dark. I like how delightfully odd his imagined creatures are. While this book has been rightfully critiqued for lacking any kind of resolution or even a discernible growth in the end for the character, I was simply taken by the unique art of Liniers. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-c2W

tpixie Great illustrations!! Looks scary!! ( I think the new Toy Story 4 is scary for young kids too! ) 4w
LapReader Just like a good foreign film. No real resolution. I love that. 4w
BarbaraBB Gorgeous illustrations indeed! 4w
Cinfhen I like the bubble thoughts 4w

If you like #darkromance with a ton of twists that‘s action packed this is a great series. The #audiobook is very well done.
