Book Review - Snug Harbor Stories: A Wallace the Brave Collection!

Snug Harbor Stories: A Wallace the Brave Collection!

About the Book
The follow up to the Eisner-nominated collection of Wallace the Brave comics, featuring beautifully illustrated scenes of childhood imagination, friendship, outdoor exploration, and adventure.

Think "Peanuts" if Charlie Brown were less of a mope or "Calvin & Hobbes" if Calvin weren't a bit of a psychopath. "Wallace The Brave" is about a family. There's Dad, a fisherman, Mom, a gardener, their almost feral young son Sterling, who never met a bug he wouldn't eat, and his older brother Wallace, a rambunctious, imaginative kid big on exploring. Mostly we see the world of the strip through Wallace's eyes, a sleepy East Coast beach town called Snug Harbor where the streets are lined with ice cream shops and the beaches are dotted with rocky tide pools ... The world of childhood depicted in the strip is a timeless, outdoorsy one reminiscent of strips like "Calvin & Hobbes" and "Cul De Sac," both of which Henry cites as influences. — NPR's Glen Weldon

My Take on the Book
Wallace is a great character that you will simply love. He truly lives life to the fullest and for me is one that many of us would love to aspire to be in our own lives. Outside of Wallace though, he is surrounded by great characters such as his best friend Spud and their friend Amelia. Both of these characters are completely unique but so much fun as well.

This book will have you laughing out loud! My daughters were laughing as much as I was too. This is a great book that will make you keep coming back for more, not only with the illustrations, but with the overall story too.
