Auggie over at Auggie Talk seems to have gotten her hands on a review copy of Once Upon a Time Machine.
She may not be a regular comics reader, but she gave the book a chance…and, well, I’ll let her speak for herself! Here are some clips from her review that made us feel the most tingly inside:
“When I received this book for review I wasn’t aware that it was a comic. At first I was wary, but it was actually very entertaining and spectacularly well done.
“I zoomed through the 400+ pages of AMAZING illustrations and FANTASTIC fable twists. It took a creative bunch of people to come up with such different perspectives on such old fables.
I can’t tell you how impressed I was with the presentation of these stories. Just as the synopsis stated this comic is for both young and old. There is nothing particularly disturbing drawn so parents should have no problem with youngins picking it up, but there’s enough meat in the story that older readers will find enjoyment just as readily.
“I have to tell you my favorite story and my favorite depiction. My favorite story in the bunch was “Rikki Tikki Tavi” (I watched that movie over and over and over again as a little girl) and my favorite depiction was “Little Red Riding Hood.”
“I do very much recommend that you snatch this up when it becomes available in October.”
Thank you, Auggie! We are flattered!
