To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
And take a hike, Tintin! There's a new classic in town, and that classic is Korgi. the tale-without-words that cannot suffer from translation.
If we're talking comparisons, the story is a charming as Brunhoff, as exciting as Herge, and as creative as Jansson. But it brings in something new. The absence of dialogue isn't a gimmick, not when it's this well handled. It is instead a brilliant means of making a true collaborator of the reader. Everyone who picks up this book will find something new in it, and bring something new to it. In fact, perhaps the brief expository notes at the end should be cut altogether, and Forums started in which every reader can contribute their own interpretation.
It demands nothing- my first "reading" was a simple glide along with the events of the art. Only on the second view did I start fitting names to characters (many different from the "actual" in the end notes). And that's how I'll probably continue- but continue I will.
Ran into the first of the series in a quaint shop in Salem, Mass. when my daughter and I took in Halloween at Salem. My sister has had Corgi's and is an artist so I knew these were for her! This is the third of the series and she loves them ! I look at them as ways to use your own imagination.
