Rendered in what seems like a combination of ink and digital coloring, this book describes exactly a visit to a friend who lives in a city. It is sweet and fast and the muted, soft colors and designs are visually appealing. I really enjoyed this book and I will enjoy sharing it with others.

I really enjoyed this Steampunk YA treat. Set in an alternate world created by a Tesla experiment, this world runs on “Myth” to power everything. Their religion is the science of Newton and Tesla, yet there is magic in this world. Full of propriety, feminism, industry and magic, this series is worth following.
I enjoyed this narrator-heavy books! I found the first couple of chapters a little frustrating as they are SO exposition-heavy, but Bosch’s use of writing conventions as plot catalysts is so much fun! The mystery is mysterious and I am excited to not learn more about the secret.
The sketchy, child-like illustrations are dynamic rendered in watercolor and colored pencil. Ralph has a hard time telling his story, until he realizes that a story is just something that happened! Complete with “Writing Tips from Ralph” and plenty of white space to let the vignettes breathe, this book is fun, well-written and worth your time.
