Dragons love Tacos
Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin (unknown Edition) [Paperback(2012)] - Adam Rubin

Written by: Adam Rubin 

Illustrated by: Daniel Salmieri 

 

This book made me laugh out loud from beginning to end. It is about all the different kinds of tacos that dragons like. This is especially important information for those who are hosting their very first party for dragons. But beware: they hate spicy salsa! So don't bring any of it to the party. What could possibly go wrong with spicy salsa... 

 

I think this book is good for 2nd and 3rd graders. I would use this as a fun book where the students could plan their own party with a certain animal! They could then mention all the different types of food that animal likes and dislikes. It would be like a mini story the students could write and share with the class.

How to Talk to Girls At Parties - The Graphic Novel
How to Talk to Girls at Parties - Fábio Moon,Gabriel Bá,Neil Gaiman

I listened to this in an audio collection of Gaiman's stories once and found this graphic novel representation on par to that listening experience.  I don't mean to toot my own horn...but I think I've got a pretty ok imagination, and Gabriel Bà's illustrations of the girls, the party and the experience were all vivid representations perfectly matching the feeling I got from listening to the story.  The huge slightly unfocused (or focused on things far beyond my reckoning) eyes of the partying girls, even the various rooms or stages of the house and beyond are beautiful, alien and slightly scary.

 

Nice short graphic novel with beautiful colors and details that will absorb readers for days.

How to Talk to Girls at Parties - Fábio Moon,Gabriel Bá,Neil Gaiman

I received a copy of this book through Book Riot.

I have not read the original short story that this graphic novel was based on, so I really had no idea what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised by the weird, yet intriguing story and the beautiful artwork.

While I still have no idea what actually happened in the story, it was a fun read with interesting art, which created a cool experience. The book was definitely not what I was expecting, which turned out to be a very good thing.

After reading the graphic novel, I would like to go back and actually read the short story, because I think it many ways the visual representations of the events were limiting and may have been better expressed through words.

Overall, a cool story that is a quick and fascinating read.
