Gustav and Henri: Volume #1

Andy Matthews, Peader Thomas

Opposites attract in this humorous illustrated graphic novel series about two best friends.   

Meet Gustav and Henri. This is their book.  It’s a bit about friendship and a lot about snacks.   

They love doing normal things together, like:       

finding a lost shuttlecock - IN SPACE! 

returning an overdue library book -  100 YEARS AGO! 

or making cakes - IN THE BATH!    

You know, completely normal things.     

Join them for 100% of your recommended daily intake of adventures, escapades, and capers - all in one book!   

With the visual appeal of Narwhal and Jelly and the irresistible humour of Dog Man, this is the perfect series for kids who love comics and funny stories. 

Each book contains 3 stories in 1, for maximum value, and maximum snacks!

Review

The purpose of junior fiction and junior graphic novels is to really get kids hooked into reading, and Gustav and Henri has all the required ingredients: a lot of fun, three different bite-sized adventures, and a bold, appealing hybrid graphic-novel design with plenty of entertaining little trimmings on the page.

The book’s first adventure takes readers to space, with friends Gustav and Henri travelling to the moon in a pig-shaped ship in search of a lost shuttlecock. The second adventure is a time-travel story: who hasn’t dreamed of accessing a time machine to help return an overdue library book? The third, final and perhaps most chaotic adventure is a festive mystery: Pig Day is the opposite of Christmas, and a missing, likely stolen, cake is jeopardising the celebrations!

The first in a series, Gustav and Henri will excite readers and make them look forward to more reading. Did I mention there are also riddles, activities and a recipe for victory nachos? Reading rules! For ages 6+.
