Horn Book Review

Andrew sketches a purple blob; next thing we know the creature's outside his window and a (frustrating) game of hide-and-seek ensues (Seeker). During Belinda's game of musical chairs with classmates (including Andrew), each time the music starts the gymnasium morphs into a candy-colored playland of animate musical notes (Unbeatable). These companion wordless comics both convey volumes through facial expressions, perspective, and dynamic panel progression. [Review covers these Game for Adventure titles: Andrew the Seeker and Belinda the Unbeatable.] (c) Copyright 2018. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
