Read full description of the books:
My girlfriend picked this up for my son, who has recently turned 7.
He's a big reader, and he loves comics. Though he hasn't been tested, is probably reading years ahead of whatever the standard metric is.
Unfortunately, Sarah made one of the classic mistakes here, and judged a book by its cover. In fact, she made the mistake twice.
1. She assumed that because it was a comic, it was probably for kids.
2. She assumed that a book with animal characters is for kids.
This is a mistake that someone who has better comic literacy never would have made. If for not other reason than because they'd read Maus at some point in their lives.
So on one hand, It wasn't a good choice, because it was too much for my little boy. (He read it just fine, but it was too violent for him, and I think the plot of treachery and betrayal was really beyond what he could understand.)
But that doesn't mean it isn't a good book. It is. The art is great, and the comic paneling is excellent in a way that I couldn't have understood 5 years ago, before I'd read several thousand comics.
So while it didn't strike home with my boy. It struck home with me. The story is strong, and the storytelling and art are truly beyond the pale.
What's more, the story was legitimately heroic in ways that I've rarely experienced. The lion's share of the credit for this should go to the art and storytelling, but the fact that the story centers around mice is important, too. The smaller you are, the more bravery means. And you can't get much smaller than a mouse....
So... yeah. I wouldn't recommend it for kids under 10 or so. But if you're older than that it's well-worth your time.
Especially recommended for those of us who always loved Reepicheep, but wanted a whole book about him being a stone-cold badass.
