Mini Review: The Singing Rock & Other Brand New Fairy Tales

Review: The Singin Rock & Other Brand New Fairy Tales by Nathaniel Lachenmeyer and Simini Blocker

A genie just wants a chance to grant a wish to the frog who accidentally let him out of his lamp—meanwhile, the frog just wants to be left alone. A witch is tormented by the cheerful (and awful) singing of a persistent bard, but when she finally snaps and turns him into a rock, he just keeps on singing—somehow the power of terrible music overcomes all magic. A wizard wants a pet. An ogre just wants to make beautiful art. Four original, wry, and utterly charming fairy tales comprise this new collection for young readers.

With a deft, lively text from Nathaniel Lachenmeyer and eye-popping, painterly art by Simini Blocker, The Singing Rock is the perfect read for kids who love a good yarn—and good comics!

Mini Review: I love anything that has to do with fairy tales, so as soon as I heard about this graphic novel, I knew I needed to read it. I'm happy I did! This was a delightful collection of new fairy tales, and I enjoyed reading all of them. My favorite was probably The Sorcerer's New Pet, but they were all good. I really loved the art in the book! I would love to read more graphic novels with this artists work. Overall, I highly recommend this book!

I checked this book out from my library.
