This one made me laugh out loud.

After Bone, Jeff Smith did a cute tale that really is perfect for children. It teaches them how to get dressed and has a great punchline that cracked up my family.

Author and illustrator Jeff Smith, best known for his Bone series for older readers, serves up a sweet and funny tale that is perfectly geared to emerging readers. They’ll readily relate to Little Mouse’s eagerness, and to all the work that goes into getting dressed. Bold lines, engaging artwork, and an appealing hero make this a can’t-miss book. It’s a delightful addition to the Toon Books line of first comics for young readers.

Comic-style illustrations use perspective, bold lines, and a simple background to great effect for focused storytelling.
