  • Sarah Dillard uses both picture-book and graphic-novel elements in this witty tale of misunderstandings and the challenge of finding one’s place in the world.
  • With six short chapters, bright digital illustrations, and fluid transitions between comics-type panels and stand-alone text, Extraordinary Warren will appeal to kids who are beginning to read independently and those who might otherwise shy away from more traditional chapter books.
  • The back-and-forth between naïve Warren and cunning Rat offers some humorous wordplay: Rat calls Warren “little tender” and tells him, “I’m looking forward to having you and your friends for dinner.” Dillard also peppers her story with ironic elements, such as a very literal take on the chicken and egg paradox.
  • Fans of Chicken Little and other unlikely hero characters will find themselves rooting for the plucky, bespectacled Warren.
