From the list on early graphic novels with unique vibes.
Who am I?
I'm an author/illustrator of picture books and early graphic novels! I love stories that are immersive, transformative, and moody. Some of my favorite vibes come from: smelling freshly-shaved pencils in autumn, hearing a great song for the first time, and finding exactly the right book when you need it!
Lauren's book list on early graphic novels with unique vibes
Why did Lauren love this book?
The vibe is: eye candy with a heart of gold!
Dog & Hat gently puts down the rule book – and so should you – in order to take a vibrantly original (and amazingly strange) ride. Dog's favorite shirt has lost its polka dots, and Dog & Hat embark upon a quest through the city's sewers to recover them. On their way, they meet technicolor characters and cross through eye-vibrating landscapes.
Every page contains multitudes: from gamuts of color to fun facts to a full tapestry of easter-egg details. Dog & Hat is as much pure art as it is storybook. Expose kids to this book in order to keep their creativity flying through the air in wild, glorious pieces. (First in a series!)
