The graphic novel was a cute read about friendship and coming of age. The two beetles were a fun treat to read about their adventures. The graphic novel has a few jokes but, had a bit more humor.
Because it’s utterly charming, and richly philosophical in a way that kept the attention of both the parent and the kid, and that’s a tall order. The stories never go where you expect, and the bug friendship is sweet, but also thoughtful and sophisticated, despite feeling pared down and seemingly straightforward.
Last night when my son came to give me a hug goodnight, he insisted I call him Stag-B, and he said “Goodnight, Rhino-B!” to me as he ran off. Of course, we all love becoming submerged in the story we are reading, but that Knetzger’s delightful work was able to push Darth Vader out the window? That’s pure magic.
