Copper by Kazu Kibuishi

Copper by Kazu Kibuishi

Graphix, an imprint of Scholastic, New York, 2010

Borrowed from the library.

I first learned about Kazu Kibuishi through his amazing Flight collections.  When I heard he had a book for young readers I had to see it.  Based on Kibuishi’s webcomic, Copper is visually lovely and contains gentle stories about friendship and trust.

Copper and his dog, Fred, have interesting adventures together.  Fred is often down-hearted and fatalistic but Copper always manages to put a pleasant spin on things and Fred learns a lot about humans and their behavior.  The characters are cute, but not too cute, and the art is beautiful.  The comic is available on the website but it is wonderful to hold the book in your hands.

  1. I’ve been wanting to read this forever! I’m so happy you enjoyed it. Now I really want to read it! Have you read Kibuishi’s Amulet series? It’s great.
