Our review for the day comes from Cybils veteran panelist Travis Jonker, who blogs at 100 Scope Notes. An elementary school librarian and School Library Journal reviewer, Travis has been reviewing books at his blog for the past 5 years and has participated in Cybils for several of those. This year he's a Round 1 judge for Fiction Picture Books. Fun Fact: He has a whole section of his site devoted to Book Covers, and he also does Toon Reviews.
His review of Fiction Picture Books nominee Green by Laura Vaccaro Seeger is traditional rather than toon, but he discusses the content, structure, and artwork of the book in some detail. In his review, Travis says:
Dramatic, reflective, and playful, this is a concept book that works on multiple levels, and succeeds at all of them….Although it debuted in the spring, this is a book for the whole year.
