Korgi: Book 1 by Christian Slade

Korgi by Christian Slade

Top Shelf Productions, Portland, 2007

Borrowed from my library.

A lovely, wordless fantasy graphic novel created by a former Disney animator.

Korgi tells the story of Ivy, her dog Sprout and their adventures in Korgi Hollow.  The artwork is black and white pencil drawings and the action moves along surprisingly quickly, due to the wonderful expressive nature of Slade’s characters.  Ivy and Sprout learn new things about each other and about their surroundings. I loved this little book and am anxiously waiting for Book 2 from my library.
