The Encyclopedia of Early Earth
Author
Isabel Greenberg
ISBN
9780316225816
A beautifully illustrated book of imaginary fables about Earth's early -- and lost -- history. Before our history began, another -- now forgotten -- civilization thrived. The people who roamed Early Earth were much like us: curious, emotional, funny, ambitious, and vulnerable. In this series of illustrated and linked tales, Isabel Greenberg chronicles the explorations of a young man as he paddles from his home in the North Pole to the South Pole. There, he meets his true love, but their romance is ill-fated. Early Earth's unusual and finicky polarity means the lovers can never touch. As intricate and richly imagined as the work of Chris Ware, and leavened with a dry wit that rivals Kate Beaton's in Hark A Vagrant, Isabel Greenberg's debut will be a welcome addition to the thriving graphic novel genre.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Isabel GreenbergPublisher: Little Brown and CompanyPublished: 12/03/2013ISBN: 9780316225816Pages: 176Weight: 2.24lbsSize: 12.07h x 8.47w x 0.88dReview Citations: Kirkus Reviews 10/15/2013Booklist 11/15/2013 pg. 32Shelf Awareness 12/10/2013Booklist Ed Choice Adu Bk YA's 01/01/2014 pg. 12
