SUMMARY FROM NETGALLEY.COM:
Join Russell, Penny, Blythe, and all of the pets for these brand-new adventures based on the hit animated TV series and toy line.MY TAKE:
I don't think I've ever actually seen the TV show, but I couldn't resist giving this a try anyway.
In The Littlest Pet Shop, readers join Blythe and the different pets that stay at The Littlest Pet Shop on their adventures.
This book contains 10 (if I counted correctly) stories. Most of the stories focus on the pets, but there's one story, plus several other subplots that focus on Blythe.
One good thing about this comic is that even if you haven't seen the show or aren't familiar with the toy line, it's easy enough to learn and remember who the different pets are.
The stories are all pretty amusing and fun to read. My favorite, though, is the one that had Blythe doing a Great Gatsby class project with the Biskit twins. The ending to that story was a little unexpected but definitely made me smile.
The book makes use of vibrant colors and illustrations that wouldn't be out of place in those Disney comics magazines I used to read when I was a kid. That's a good thing, though, since kids tend to be drawn to this style.
Thanks to NetGalley and IDW Publishing for the e-ARC.
