" Mommy says: Too easy for an advanced third grader. Meant for beginning readers. " said.

"I’m an adult, but I honestly thought it a bit boring. I actually think trains are really cool but the story felt so pedestrian. The part about looking for a ticket in order to get an extra page of words and pictures seemed a bit superfluous. I don’t really understand why some books seem to feel the need to be boring in order to appeal to kids… But maybe kids would be more excited by a rather ordinary trip on a train than me. I did like the “instructions” on how to read a graphic novel, but I found that the text was actually not very graphic novel like, with more of the story portrayed in narration with the dialog as asides rather than driving the plot forward. I did really like that the family portrayed was Asian but I wonder if they were maybe too stereotyped? The art was okay but not particularly innovative in any way. While I can’t attest to the quality of the rest of the series, tiles like “Airplane Adventure” and “Bella’s Boat Surprise” seem about as exciting as paste for dinner. I would suggest that if you want some easy to read graphic novel-style picturebooks to try the Toon Books series rather than the My Frist graphic Novel collection. Rather than seemingly forceful creating a series, Toon books seems to give the authors and illustrators more free reign and ends up creating innovative, endearing, strange and wonderful, and coincidentally award-winning picturebooks." said.
