Review

SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL -- Gr 6 Up-Struggling to cope after the death of her mother, Marjorie has to look after her father, who has depression, and her little brother; attend high school; and run the family laundromat business, where they all live and work. At school, other classmates bully her, and a pushy man is eager to take over the laundromat. And as if this isn't enough, young Wendell, a ghost who is unhappy being dead and surrounded by other spirits, haunts Marjorie and her business. The characters are distinct, and the villain is delightfully vile and self-absorbed. The ghosts, who must wear sheets to be visible, are every bit as sympathetic as the humans. The artwork is charming, and the backgrounds are lovingly detailed, with amusing and often punny elements. The contrast between Marjorie's warm, candy-colored world and Wendell's stark, monochrome Land of Ghosts adds life (and death) and dimension to the story. Panels vary in size, which enriches the narrative. VERDICT This heartfelt, lingering tale of friendship, family, and forgiveness will captivate children and adults alike, especially those who have experienced loss.-Kelley Gile, Cheshire Public Library, CT




LEMONY SNICKET -- For days after reading Brenna Thummler's SHEETS, I have been wandering my neighborhood, haunted, enchanted, and in need of freshly pressed clothing.




Brian Selznick -- Brenna Thummler's first original graphic novel is a reason to celebrate. She announced herself as an artist to reckon with when she illustrated Mariah Marsden's adaptation of Anne of Green Gables. Now she's illustrated her own story of ghosts and family, loneliness and laundromats. I'm sure you'll be captivated, and as eager as I am to see what comes next!



SHELF-AWARENESS -- Brenna Thummler's first solo work for young readers, Sheets, is a subtle, gentle work that expresses empathy and warmth even while depicting life's more painful experiences. Sheets shows the versatility of the graphic novel medium as Thummler uses color palette and the shape, size and solidity of panels to evoke emotions both pleasant and upsetting.




Dana Simpson (Phoebe and Her Unicorn) -- Sweet, sad, funny, warm, and beautiful. If I can be forgiven for using this word, this is one that will haunt me, in the best way.
