Adele in Sand Land: TOON Level 1 by Claude Ponti
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This story was originally published in French in 1988 and many could easily call it a picturebook. However, this time as an entry into Toon Books line of graphic novels it easily makes the cut.Presented in a variety of frames with narration (there are no speech bubbles), Ponti makes unique use of the frames.They start as single frames to a page then on to a two-page spread of single frames showing different parts of the same scene to several vertical frames per page showing action such as found in a filmstrip. It's a cute story and with its nonsensical fantastic world can easily be compared to "Alice in Wonderland".
