The artwork is gorgeous and varied in superb manner. I love the multiple styles in here, and also that these nursery rhymes are depicted in punchy, one or two page spreads for the most part. Some of these adaptations are pretty literal:
|A rare non-Love and Rockets Jaime Hernandez piece.|
|This picture just makes me smile.|
|Dave Roman rules!|
|Not going to lie. I laughed out loud at this one.|
All of the reviews I have read about this book have gushed as much as I have here. Kirkus Reviews gave it a starred review and summed up, "As much as the visual styles may vary, the high levels of wit and invention never falter." Elizabeth Bird wrote that this book "gives kids everywhere a new way of encountering some essential cultural touchstones." Stumptown Trade Review called it "a fun and unexpected delight."
Nursery Rhyme Comics was published by First Second, and they provide a preview and much more here.
