Bedtime Story: Graphic Novel Review of Tom and Jerry: Grouchy Cat by Christopher Harbo & Illustrated by Scott Jeralds


Read for: Requested Review/ Netgalley/ Graphic Novel & LOVE Tom & Jerry

Synopsis: "Tom and Jerry are back in an  all-new series of wordless graphic novels for the youngest learners. With simple, easy-to-follow panels, this series develops visual literacy, storytelling skills, and prediction abilities in prereaders and early readers alike. Best of all, these age-appropriate stories are chock-full of Tom and Jerry laughs and surprises that will encourage readers to revisit them again and again."

My Review:  I can't tell you how thrilled I am that Tom and Jerry are making a comeback. Munchkin loves watching the classic cartoons and Tom and Jerry is his all time favorite. I loved that this illustration style is still along the lines of the originals, but the modern elements are added in to appeal to this younger generation. It was a great modernization to revitalize this classic story of cat and mouse. This images are bright and bold, and being a wordless graphic novel it can be enjoyed by readers of all ages. This is definitely a graphic novel that will be added to our shelf and I can already hear Munchkin's laughter as he flips through the pages.

My Rating: I am so thrilled to see this coming out, it brought me back to my childhood and will be a wonderful way to connect with Munchkin. I give it a rating of Four Paws!

I received a complimentary copy of this book via Netgalley, the above is my honest review and opinion.

You can find out more about Christopher Harbo's work on his Goodreads Page as well as Scott Jeralds' on his Goodreads Page, all of which include some great classic comics with a new feel.
