Allie Jones, a Round 1 judge for Graphic Novels, has a blog title we can all relate to: In Bed With Books. You might know her by her online handle Liviania; on her blog she reviews a wide range of books and graphic novels, both YA and grown-up, and also posts interviews and other items of kidlit interest. Fun Fact: when she was a kid, she was on a competitive ice skating drill team.
One of the Cybils GN nominees she reviewed was Cardboard by Doug TenNapel, whose name will be familiar from past Cybils nominee and finalist lists (and, for those who like video games, he was the creator of Earthworm Jim!). In this latest offering for MG readers, some cardboard creatures made by a young boy and his dad come to life and run amuck. In her review, Allie says:
CARDBOARD can be enjoyed many ways, from creepy adventure to morality
play. Although aimed at children, there's plenty for adults to enjoy.
