Cast Away on the Letter A: A Philemon Adventure (Toon Books) by Fred
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I like this a lot. An English translation of a French "comic strip", as they call them over there, this is the adventures of Philemon and there appear to be many others available in the original language. Toon Books has chosen to translate and print this one in its "Toon Graphics" series, virtually a level 4 coming after the graded readers. This book is a large oversized one, like a picture book, and as is common with the French style the book's design is presented with many square panels per page. This is a fun story of adventure. Philemon sees a bottle with a message in his hardly ever used well and when he climbs in discovers an entirely new and different world. I like Philemon already and will watch for the next one to come out.
