    This didn t work for me It has an interesting concept and some good messages about art, self acceptance, and dealing with emotions, but I wantedworld building and a lot less metaphor Clearly, most readers liked this, and I m glad that they did, but I had a hard time following the story Because the author never grounded his magical realism plot within a framework of communicated rules for the fantasy world, what happened seemed random and choppy to me.

    What a sweet comic It s simultaneously a book about the joy of making art, a book about mental health, and a book about celebrating differences all wrapped up in colorful, artsy, kid friendly package I loved it.

    Doodleville comes close, but doesn t quite hit the mark, in its depiction of mental issues and insecurity While I appreciate the diverse cast and will likely want to readabout them, I don t feel a strong connection with this one If given the choice, I d go for Cardboard Kingdom instead.

    Cute kids graphic novel about the importance of art, not suppressing emotions, friendship, teamwork, and creativity The art style is really engaging and some of the doodles the author has been drawing since he was a kid and while it wasn t my favorite graphic novel, I m not the target audience But I d buy it for my kids Thanks to the author, publisher, and NetGalley for giving me a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

    With the diverse cast of characters, everyone will find someone with whom they can identify The plot is funny and action packed and I love the teamwork angle.

    Drew loves to draw She is in an art club with several other kids that have unique talents However, when one of her drawings starts attacking her art club s work she must team up with them to stop it Art Overall I thought the drawings, especially the doodles, were really cute I liked the moments when the doodles were playing with the real paintings However, sometimes the art for the other characters got kind of ugly I also think the other characters could have haddistinct art styles Drew loves to draw She is in an art club with several other kids that have unique talents However, when one of her drawings starts attacking her art club s work she must team up with them to stop it Art Overall I thought the drawings, especially the doodles, were really cute I liked the moments when the doodles were playing with the real paintings However, sometimes the art for the other characters got kind of ugly I also think the other characters could have haddistinct art styles They all drew something that Drew could have drawn It s probably the limitation of only having one artist If only he could have collaborated with some other artists Story I liked the themes of cooperation It s great to see such a diverse group of characters come together to achieve a goal It s also a reminder that everyone has something to offer in their artistic expression I also liked the leviathan as a metaphor for anger, depression, or artistic funk Some of the dialog was a little stilted and could have been stronger Overall, I d give this a 3.5 5 stars rounded up to 4 A cute graphic novel for kids ages 8 12
