March Grand Prix: (omnibus, 1-3)

Kean Soo finally comes out with a new graphic novel since the Jellaby books. Like those, this is adorably illustrated but unlike Jellaby, Grand Prix is mostly suited to the younger audience; Jellaby was also for children, but it had a second level that appealed to the adult audience. March Grand Prix is all for the kids. This is a bind-up of three books available separately.  A lovable set of rabbit siblings, each has a special talent hobby though the family shares an interest in car racing with March Hare being a professional driver. The first story is how he wins his first race. These are good entertaining stories, three in all, which are independent of each other though they do briefly mention events from prior stories. While I do think the stories are fun and entertaining each one does unmistakably have a lesson to teach without trying to hide that they are. Soo is a great cartoon-style artist and I'm thrilled to see this Canadian bringing out another series as it's been a long wait since Jellaby.
