Takeaway: Monkess the Homunculus has the wonder of childhood, in graphic novel form.
I do not read a ton of children’s book. My daughter is just starting to get to the point of reading slightly longer picture books and I think that this one is just a bit longer than she is ready for.
But I picked a couple of these books up to give as Christmas presents. I found them because Seth Hahne is the illustrator for Christ and Pop Culture magazine (which I very much recommend as well). He is a fantastic illustrator and did this book as a Kickstarter and published it last year.
You can see the whole book on the video below, but I am glad that I bought a couple and kept one to read with my daughter in a few months when she is a little bit older.
The art and story are very good, but I was honestly surprised about how good the quality of the hardback and paper were. This is much better than most children’s books. I picked three of them up for $10 each in a Christmas sale, but this is totally worth the full price.
