10 Little Insects by Davide Cali
You already know when dealing with works by the rockstar and illustrator Mr Cali that the work will be beautiful. In 10 Little Insects, the graphics again are colorful and striking with a fair amount of wonderful cheek. Set as a graphic novel, the story is of ten insects with very distinctive personalities that embark on a journey to an island for various reasons. On the island, farcical disasters ensures giggles and, spoiler alert, the eventual demise of all lead characters.
