Saints is the second book in the two book graphic series, Boxer & Saints While it is shorter than Boxers, it still packs a lot of story. We see how Four-Girl (later Vibiana), the unwanted fourth-girl of her family, defies the odds by living and dealing with a strict, old-school Chinese family ruled by her Grandfather. We even see how her story connects with Boa’s in Boxers. A tie-in with Joan of Arc brings this story into the Christian story of the Boxer Rebellion. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
When Thomas wanders off while spending a day on the beach with his family, he finds a book about a boy named Thomas who is having a day on the wintery slopes. He too, wanders off and finds a book about a boy named Thomas who is a having a day out in outer space.... How long will this go? And will Thomas get back to his family? Like the story itself, the illustrations are an imaginative adventure. They bring to life a familiar tale, with some unfamiliar elements. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
Bauer combines science and spiritually. Both story and art create a beautiful way of showing the science of art and the art of science with poetic text and art. The illustrations are bold, rich, deep, abstract and a hit to the gut. The colors blend, melt, splatter and roll off the page. They are dark, with the right amount of light when and where needed. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
We follow Lu in the last book of the Track series, as his changes include not being a full-time runner but is also doing the hurdles (which, of course, is a metaphor for his life), learning about his father’s past, his mother’s surprise pregnancy, overcoming bullies and fears he has. Not to mention the day-to-day issues of being an albino. Yet, Lu, while having self-confidence issues, also has a good hold on who he is. That is, until he starts to have the changes occur and he redefines himself. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
