Shuna's Journey | Hayao Miyazaki

I had a hard time finding a book for my last #BBRC prompt #AdultAGraphicNovelFromTheYearYourWereBorn but this Miyazaki 1983 classic has just been translated into English for the first time. It‘s an amazing little story based on a traditional Tibetan legend about barley becoming their staple crop. With adaptations that tell a larger political story. It‘s beautifully done and unlike anything I‘ve read before. Very glad I picked it!

IndoorDame This is the first emonogatari I‘ve read and though I tend to love more fluid graphic novels, it took me quite a while to get the hang of reading from right to left without the guide of the traditional style of panels and quote bubbles. 3w
LibrarianRyan yeahhhh 3w
Aimeesue Miyazaki ❤️❤️❤️ Spirited Away is one of my favorite movies. Well, almost all the Studio Ghibli movies are. (edited) 3w

The Nature of Witches | Rachel Griffin

I really enjoyed this book. At times it could be a little too ya. The magic system was cool. Each witch has a designated season which they are strongest in controlling except Clara, she is an Everwitch & has power through all four seasons but she can't control it. I'm really looking forward to the #SundayBuddyRead discussion @TheBookHippie

Cute mystery great for older kids, like 4-6/7? Fun for a story time I‘d think. #bbrc #picturebook:A #boookspinbingo #BINGO #scarathlon #teamslaughter +46ptd

The Handyman is one of Little's more gruesome stories & just as Cujo reminds us to make sure our St. Bernards have their rabies vaccines, Handyman is about the importance of making sure the people who work on our houses are licensed & bonded.
The other 4 are entertaining ghost stores that Tamed Wild put together. The La Vampire is one that is credited in helping give Anne Rice ideas for Interview 👻

In case I need reminded, manga is really not my favorite reading genre, but I completely understand the appeal. Just not for me!

This is the first in the well known Sailor Moon series, so provides the background on the rise of Sailor Moon and her allies, plus the mysterious Tuxedo Mask. The illustrations are fun. #BBRC #TeenAngst #ShojoManga

TheBookHippie I can‘t do it. My niece loves it! 1mo
LibrarianRyan Ohh. Too bad. I love it but I grew up with it so it‘s a bit different for me. 1mo

Interesting adaptation of The Great Gatsby. The illustrations worked very well with the story, and though it‘s been years since I‘ve read the original novel, I think this edition captures the essence of the story. #TeenAngst #GraphicNovelVersionOfANovelAlreadyInExistence #BBRC

LibrarianRyan I think there were 2 different graphic novel editions done. I know I read one of them. i am glad you like it. 1mo

I hadn‘t read this collection before… but it collected all my favorites, and even though it‘s poetry- had poetic excerpts from some of the great short stories too. Perfectly packaged for young readers. #scarathlon #teamslaughter +6 #bbrc #mg #youngreaderedition

Meh. Maybe ok for a story time? But it wouldn‘t be my first choice. Very simple illustrations and story, so maybe just for the young lap-sit ages? #bbrc #picturebook:M #scarathlon #teamslaughter +26

Didn‘t love this one…. It‘s kind of weird. Or maybe the idea has been done so much better than before (ie: Where the Wild Things Are). Just never felt comfortable with it or compelled to believe in the story. #bbrc #picturebook:H #scarathlon #teamslaughter +6

Loved this! I love how the author/illustrator demonstrated how it feels to be a person in a new place and don‘t understand the language. It‘s a difficult concept, it he nailed it here. #bbrc #picturebook:G #scarathlon #teamslaughter +6
