Korgi, a Delightful Epic for All Ages

Korgi. Book 1, [Sprouting wings!] by Christian Slade — a beautifully illustrated woodland fantasy about a young girl, Ivy, her Korgi cub, Sprout, and their amazing adventures in Korgi Hallow. This wordless series is the masterful artistic creation of Christian Slade who was a Disney animator for many years. Gaze upon illustrations that are so full of life that the pages radiate the emotions of the characters. No written dialogue is necessary to know exactly what is happening and what is being felt. Join Ivy and Sprout on their perilous encounters with trolls, dinosaurs, and other exotic creatures when they wonder too far from the safety of their village.

If you enjoyed The Invention of Hugo Cabret and Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick, you will be equally impressed with Korgi. If you liked The Hobbit and Owly, you will marvel at the fantasy in Korgi. Let us hope the series continues!
