As the holidays approach, the pickings get slim. So many publishers target summer, and the gift books have already come out. Still, there’s one book I’d like to draw your attention to from your local comic shop.
Buzz!, by Ananth Panagariya and Tessa Stone, is a hyperactive look at spelling competitions with very clever use of the comic format to really get the reader involved in the face-offs. How Scott Pilgrim uses video game allusions, Buzz! uses words. Check it out, particularly if you have preteens looking for their next comic read.
