‘Giggleworthy graphic-novel goodness.’ Kirkus ‘The purpose of junior fiction and junior graphic novels is to really get kids hooked into reading, and Gustav and Henri has all the required ingredients: a lot of fun, three different bite-sized adventures, and a bold, appealing hybrid graphic-novel design with plenty of entertaining little trimmings on the page. The first in a series, Gustav and Henri will excite readers and make them look forward to more reading. Did I mention there are also riddles, activities and a recipe for victory nachos? Reading rules!’ – Readings ‘This series is off to a fun start. The characters are well established right out of the gate and consistent throughout all three stories. Gustav is the impulsive one and Henri (­actually short for Henrietta) is always there to get them out of trouble. Matthews makes the story fun and fast but never rushed. Despite a limited palette of blue, gray and black, Thomas’s art is a fantastic complement to the story. Every page is creative and interesting to look at.’ School Library Journal ‘This will be a popular series for elementary and middle school age kids who love humor, science fiction and fun.’ School Library Journal'This hilarious graphic novel ... promises enjoyably absurd adventures.' – Publishers Weekly
