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.
I bought this book as a christmas gift for my 2.5 year old based on the reviews on Amazon. Everything I read made me feel like this was the book to buy for her. "appropriate for all ages", "a story of a girl and her dog", etc. What wasn't said was that there are a significant number of scary drawings of monsters. Especially the last page. It's downright frightening. I read the book with her for the first time, and am now afraid that she's going to wake up with nightmares tonight. She was not a fan. I'd say, this is probably more appropriate for a bit older child. My daughter is a very mature 2.5 year old who LOVES the Weisner books (Flotsam, Tuesday, Mr. Wuffles and the Three Pigs). I thought that a wordless graphic novel would be a nice addition to her love for picture books. Unfortunately this is not the one.
On the other hand, it was a cute story with a very cute fantasy world. I liked it ;)
Korgi is a graphic novel in the truest sense: it's all graphic. There's not a single word of dialog. Christian Slade's artwork is absolutely gorgeous (it's obvious that he has Corgis himself, because he captures them perfectly). This book is appropriate for all ages. Personally, I find it a little difficult to get involved in a story when it has no words, but as long as you're expecting a purely visual experience, I recommend this book.
I didn't' realize that this was all written like a comic book. My daughter who loves to read was a bit disappointed, however it is drawn so well that each page is almost a work of art. It's really beautifully done.
