Cartoonist Ivan Brunetti (Schizo, Haw! Hee!, Misery Loves Company) returns with his first children's book, Wordplay (978-1943145171, $12.95), from Toon Books. It is a hilarious and playful exploration into vocabulary aimed at readers in kindergarden through first grade.
In an interview with CBR, Brunetti describes the book as "in essence a comic-strip story in the format of a children’s book." He continued by saying, "since English is not my first language, I thought it might be nice to play with the language, using my immigrant’s ear. The book is really about daydreaming (which I have much experience with), but compound words are the vessel through which that theme is poured."
Wordplay (978-1943145171, $12.95) is slated to release May 30, 2017. For a preview of the book, see below.
