LIBRARY JOURNAL REVIEW - "This lovely work from Argentinean cartoonist Marcos Severi’s uses minimal text and spare yet striking images, mostly drawn in black crayon but with occasional, delightful bursts of color. Many of the illustrations are metaphorical, like visual poems—a middle-aged man watches himself melt down a drain, in a commentary on aging that might go over the heads of some readers. Still, they’ll be entertained by other entries, like a hilarious cartoon of a caveman accidentally squashing a fly while making cave art, which feels straight out of The Far Side. Others are thoughtful and hopeful—a beheaded plant, with the text “Your roots are intact, you’ll flower again.” A quick read that will leave those who pick it up wanting more. Readers who enjoy poetry, art, or comics in the vein of The Far Side will be enchanted."
