This is a graphic novel in the true essence of the phrase - there are no words. It is set in a very early civilisation I guess where words were not used, so the pictures really have to captivate well the meaning and thoughts behind the action; this book somehow manages to capture this incredibly well. The downside of this book for me is that you can read it in fifteen minutes while standing in the bookshop. It really isn't one to buy unless you are truely passionate about the art and the story; which unfortunately, I am not.

I would rather read Blood Song or Dogs and Water2007I think most reviewer's enthusiasm exceeds my own in this. However, I still found it a good quick viewing for the bathroom. The majority of this book is a black and grey blocky rocky picto-story of a giant stone creature which orders the building of a castle, and the dominance of a colorful small neighbouring tree people. This message is a little too obvious and simple both in delivery and style for my liking. Some may enjoy Sticks more, but I was left dissatisfied in the end.

I was nosing through the graphic novel shelf at BN and found this. I think it's wonderful. I'm at a loss for words. (haha... bad joke, sorry)
