Book Review - Green Pieces: Green From the Pond Up by Drew Aquilina

Thursday, July 1, 2010

I received Green Pieces: Green From the Pond Up - A Cartoon Collection by Drew Aquilina for review here on my blog. I had mixed emotions going into this read because you see no matter how much I love animals and the environment I don't what you would call 'love' comic books. But this book taught me an important lesson. There is a big difference between comic books and comic strips. Now I don't know if that is technically true but it seems that as for me I don't enjoy comic books but I DO enjoy comic strips.

Green Pieces follows the lives of Iggy, Radic, Cabby, Roc and all the other animals around the pond. How they live and get along out in the world and interact with humans as they encroach on their land. It's a fun and informative look at life in the wild, not the kind of wild what most of us never get to see but the kind of wild that is right in our backyard or at a neighborhood pond. This would be a great book to share with a young person in your life, the cartoonish drawing would get them reading and they just might walk away having learned a little something.

You can learn more about the pond and it's colorful characters at their home here on the web.
