As usual, we are forever indebted to Twitter for enabling us to come into contact with the top notch work of Koyama Press.
Their graphic novels really stood out for us and we particularly liked the look of ‘A Cat Named Tim’ by John Martz.
Get lost inside this graphical feast for the eyes, with an array of colourful characters as mini stories unfold with minimum text but maximum impact.
Welcome to the world of Tim the cat, where he, a duck named Doug, his friend the mouse and Connie the bob-sporting rabbit love nothing more than a party and a pizza and plenty of surreal adventure. (And who can blame them?)
Let your imagination run loose as a couple of happy old pigs wait months for a bus to arrive, only to miss it as they check to see if they’ve left the oven on and a cat practices his golf put on the back of a whale, with hilarious consequences.
The range of varied layouts and sumptuously coloured spreads, coupled with the injection of humour and utter absurdity, will appeal to young children and many an adult.
This visually stunning tome would be an asset to any bookshelf and look out for more offerings from Koyama Press.
