Adventures in Cartooning is a great idea - and we have some of the books in our school library. They introduce several characters and by building a story around those characters, the basics of cartooning are explained to the readers. This new book is actually a complete story in a blend of comic and picture book with the familiar characters of the knight and Edward, the horse. Edward and the knight are going camping, with Edward carrying such an enormous amount of supplies that he gets hung up on the portcullis and then pops loose. After repacking, the twosome find a camping spot and have fun toasting marshmallows. But when bedtime comes, there is a major problem - the knight's teddy bear is missing! With lots of funny situations, this story is sure to have readers laughing and then practicing their own cartooning skills.
I read an e-book provided by the publisher through NetGalley The title will be released in stores on April 14, 2015. While you're waiting, you can find out more about the whole series from the publisher's website, or check out the copies we have in the library.
