    1. While his father is engaged in some boring dad talk, Luke takes off after a pigeon, and winds up running amok through the city Cute, though I prefer Bliss s comics for adults.

    2. Luke s dad runs into a friend in Central Park The two dads talk, and Luke gets bored So Luke takes off after the pigeons, eventually chasing them all over Manhattan and across the East River into Brooklyn The comic book is the perfect medium for Luke s zany antics, and the sound effects they entail EEK AAAH YAAAH I also like that Luke and his dad are an African American family having a universal experience Trust me when I say that black kids, and especially black boys, are underrepresented in ch [...]

    3. In this graphic novel for beginning readers, Luke gets away from his dad at a park and chases a long suffering flock of pigeons all over NYC, causing much chaos It reminds a bit of Once Upon a Banana by Armstrong but is not so madcap This is fun but the illustrations are a bit flat, given the surreal nature of Luke s adventures he achieves almost super human feats of leaping and climbing Still, a fine offering from the folks at TOON Books.

    4. The illustrations in this book are phenomenal and they need to be to show the audience all of the reactions to Luke running loose through the city The dialogue is simple and the pictures tell than enough, making it a great graphic novel for younger readers.

    8. The TOON Book idea was simple Produce books for early readers in a comic book format, as created by a variety of different author illustrators Cat in the Hat with speech bubbles, if you will The problem Children s authors often say that novels are easy and picture books are hard I d take that one step further Picture books are hard but easy books are near impossible To be truly great you have to reinvent the genre Seuss did Mo Willems certainly has with his Elephant and Piggie And until now the [...]
