Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Michael Jung PhD
Enter the magical village of the Korgis—friendly, fox-like creatures—and their companions the Mollies, woodfolk with remarkable abilities of their own. Although life in Korgi Hollow is idyllic, the Mollies and Korgis must be careful not to venture too far into the woods where ogres, giant spiders, and other monsters lurk. Unfortunately, when Ivy, a young Mollie, and her Korgi cub Sprout are caught in a bad storm they end up meeting these monsters and get caught by a nasty ogre with a taste for Korgis. Now, Ivy and Sprout must use their courage, wits, and a few hidden talents to escape back to the safety of Korgi Hollow. Told almost entirely through black-and-white pictures with no written dialogue or captions, this first volume in the "Korgi" graphic novel series is a wonderful example of classic fairy tale-style illustrations combined with the visual storytelling techniques of more modern graphic novels. Although author/artist Slade includes a brief introduction giving a short history of Korgi Hollow and the main characters, the text is not necessary to appreciate this story, which manages to be both lighthearted and suspenseful. Much like Andy Runton's "Owly" books (which also tell stories based entirely on pictures), the "Korgi" books are an excellent all-ages series that transcends language barriers and celebrates whimsical fantasy.
