Another one for the nephew as he liked the first one. I thought this was just as fun as book one. I really enjoyed the side story with Shark and Legs.
I also read the two Disney books but will skip reviews. The Wild Robot #3 is on my TBR.
I never get tired of stories considering the place of death in life, stories with a personification of Death. Stunning. Impressively imaginative (never read POV of a cigarette before, or seen a temple speak), gorgeously illustrated (the colours chosen as much as the art itself 👨🏼🍳💋), wistful bordering on melancholic, and yet so vibrant and hopeful. I will be seeking out other works by both the author and artist. 👌🏻
I read a stack of great picture books this month, which reminds me: Goodreads dropped picture books from their readers‘ choice awards this year. I‘m not sad about that because they tended to have crappy picture books on the voting list anyway.
Visually I had troubles with this because I really didn't enjoy the art style, and the nature of the main character (complex inner monologue/hyper intelligent thought processes, plus any dialogue happening between other characters) means a high concentration of text boxes fighting the art for space. 1/3
