    1. Reason for Reading: Graphic Spin is my favourite series from this publisher!Loved this one even more than the Camel book! In this book the narrator tells the story, and the animals & Ethiopian can hear him. They talk back to him quite often and it's quite hilarious. It doesn't mention who the illustrator has worked for in the past as an animator, but these animals facial expressions had me thinking Dreamworks' "Madagascar" big time. They are that personified. Though nobody dies in the book d [...]

    2. Okay, now you'd think, even as a fan of Rudyard Kipling from a very tender childhood age, I would have had enough of 'varients' of his work but honestly, what these artists did with this story, is fantastical.They gave it an almost steampunk-ish or 'modern mythpunk' style to the art, presented it as the work of a great scientist (and who's to say he wasn't!) and given us a whale of a story that provided giggles all along the way.The art alone in this book, even if you're familliar with the story [...]

    3. A graphic novel adaptation of Kipling's story. Overall, a funny way of explaining something as complex as camouflage. The animals can hear the narrator and make comments about how he's telling the story which I think will appeal to young readers and dial right into their sense of humor. Animals are drawn in a cartoony way (think of the Madagascar movies). Back matter includes a bio on Kipling and both the retelling author and the illustrator. Terms are defined and discussion questions follow the [...]

    4. I grew up loving the Just-So stories and enjoyed seeing how the stories can be adapted to the graphic novel format. Appreciated that at the end of every story there are facts, vocabulary definitions, discussion questions, and personal research ideas. There are some interesting online eBook resources as well for this story. My son explored the eBook editions this summer and we enjoyed them quite a bit.

    5. A really nice format with facts, a glossary, and some suggested discussion questions. The interaction between the characters and the narrator goes a long way toward updating Kipling's story and adding humor, however, this particular story still feels dated and even potentially offensive. Others in the series may avoid this pitfall.

    6. This was a fun graphic novel! I enjoyed it veyr much and look forward to others with Sean Tulien. It was a nice change of pace.

    7. This is an incredible graphic novel that would be a great contribution to any classroom. I would consider this book funny, a great read, full of academic content like vocabulary, puns, etc and a graphic novel that nonchalantly touches on important themes such as patience, the experience of changing and the circle of life. It also contains the idea of having facts about animals and hunting with a glossary at the back of the book and pages with great illustrations that covers concrete, educational [...]

    8. I liked the animals in it. There are leopards, kudus, zebra, and a giraffe in it. And a man too. I like the part when they change in the story.
