Review

Tippy and the Night Parade

 

Toon Books continues its excellent comics series of sturdy board books for brand-new readers with TIPPY AND THE NIGHT PARADE. Tippy imagines a series of adventures that happen to her after she falls asleep --- she imagines sleepwalking past a night fisherman and later falling into a deep hole and meeting a bear. All her exasperated mother would like to know is how all these animals got into her room and transformed it into such a mess.

Chicago-based artist Lilli Carré draws an imaginatively evocative book for young ones here. The oranges of the “real” world are contrasted nicely with the deep-blue hues of Tippy’s dream world.

The end of the book features a helpful guide for parents and teachers: How to Read Comics with Kids features several helpful tips to allow kids to develop their own love for reading.
