Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers! I trust that your weekends went well or if not at the very least are easy to overcome....in either case I wish you a wonderful week ahead full of good times, great friends, and a little work (hey, no week can be PERFECT....there would never be anything to keep striving for!). Why the jolly good mood? Well, it might have something to do with the feature of today's post....it might indeed, for it is very hard to have a down-trodden demeanor when one is talking about fairies, pixie dust, and Disney! **cue the rainbows, start sprinkling the glitter** Today's book of choice is....
Stefan Petrucha, Giada Perissinotto, and Caterina Giorgetti
Combining the beautiful artwork from the creators of our childhood favorites with magical stories sure to delight readers of any age, this is one graphic novel to take a chance on indeed (and that's coming from someone that generally makes a point of saying "just say no" to graphic novels). What can I say, generally, they strike me as higher priced comic books that are over in a flash (manga & graphic novel lovers out there....put the tar and feathers down....this post goes to show how a little twist on the old fav can usher in even the skeptical non-fans of a genre)...this one was different. You get to join Tinkerbell, Prilla and all their friends as they test the bonds of friendship, help each other discover their inner fairy, go head to head in a little fairy competition and even discover the first blush of love...all in Disney-esque fun. There's nothing risque within theses pages, just simply the thrill of discovery in all its wonder and glory. My favorite of them all? Hmmm....if hard pressed to decide, I think I like The Sound of Friendship best. It's a side of Tinkerbell you don't normally get to see and the celebration being prepared for has wonderful intentions. So clap your hands and join the other "believers" as you take pause to welcome this new addition to the timeless family.
Recommended reading for Disney lovers of all ages! Special thanks to Paula at AME for the review copy! (THANKS!) This collection will hit the shelves tomorrow so be on the lookout!
So, speaking of comic books, graphic novels, manga...or whatever you call the variation you may read....I'm curious to know, do YOU read them? If so, which one is your favorite?
Until next time....happy reading!
