A powerful graphic novel that takes an in-depth look at how alcoholism affects a young family.

A story, sensitively told, about a family and separation and sadness and alcoholism.

Nice illustrations, but the story and characters are very childish. For preteens (but I sense they would be bored). And two female authors creating a male protagonist? Not authentic or credible.

Touching story about a family's ongoing struggle, as well as the tragic consequences of giving in to your fears and weaknesses vs the benefits of being brave and taking a chance. Highly recommend for tweens and teenagers, and I would also recommend the same authors' other graphic novel, Jane, the Fox & Me.

Amazingly beautiful illustrations! The contrast of grey and color bring this emotional graphic novel that accompanies Louis and Truffle as they process their parents separation.

A stunningly illustrated and quiet graphic novel about the power of family and how sadness impacts children.
