Sally EstesAn offshoot of the popular adult fantasy line of ElfQuest tales, which includes full-color comics and graphic novels as well as prose novels and short-story anthologies, this graphic novel is intended for children and features stories told to--and by--"young 'uns" of the wolfriders tribe of elves. The individual tales within the family framework are takeoffs on classic fairy tales--"Hansel and Gretel," "Jack and the Beanstalk," and "Little Red Riding Hood," for example--that, avoiding the lustiness and bawdiness often found in the adult works, remain true to the ElfQuest canon, and give fun new twists to the familiar tales. The expected humor and adventure are here, and the full-color artwork, reproduced on heavy, glossy stock, is comparable to that found throughout the ElfQuest saga. Sure to attract reluctant readers, this will also draw those already familiar with ElfQuest.
