Lint Boy by Aileen Leijten
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A wonderful graphic novel for kids. I just love dolls-coming-to-life stories and this one is a bit gloomy and goth with a happy ending. The art is terrific, I especially liked Lint Boy and Pinhead. The graphic format is not typical, using a wide variety of designs. Some pages are more picture book with a narrative square, others still form a picture book page but with word bubbles for the text, and finally others use the typical frames format. There is a mean old hag and stories of doll torture so sensitive kids may be scared but all others will love the tale.
