Summer Reading 2015 Gryphons Aren't so Great


The lovable and hilarious characters from Adventures in Cartooning return for more hi-jinks and laughs. This time the knight and faithful steed Edward are out having fun. When they discover a gryphon, the knight is tempted by the desire to fly. Poor Edward is left earthbound and alone. But, as usually happens with glitzy new acquaintances, the knight comes to see that Edward is a true friend and gryphons aren't so great.

The book (as do all those in the series), has "how-to draw" guides for Edward and the knight, and this time gryphons and bats are added. Even the youngest readers can easily create their own versions of the characters and write their own adventures. It is amazing how much emotion can be displayed by an armored helmet or a horse's body language with just a few strokes of the pencil. Old and new fans will enjoy this latest outing and be eager for more.

I read an e-book provided by the publisher through NetGalley.
