THE CLOUDS ABOVE is the cutest book ever

Call it a comic, call it a picture book, call it it a graphic novel, call it whatever you want. The clouds above by Jordan Crane is adorable. I picked it up yesterday with some other new books from my midtown comics shopping extravaganza, and I have to say that I am not disappointed in the least. I try not to go there with books in mind. I just browse around till something jumps off the shelf at me, and the fact that they have members rewards (for every $100 you spend they give you your next $20 off) it’s hard to to buy a few too many books on occasion. But this book is by far my favorite of the year! It’s a super-cute story of a boy and his cat and his adventure in the clouds. I really don’t want to ruin it for anyone so thats all I’m saying. If you a real book collector I recommend getting the signed number edition here. And just in case you like kids comics as much as I have grown to love them check out this awesome blog I stumbled upon today Kid’s Comics, maybe there is something else that is just dying to be added to your library.
