My Review of Volume 1: The Tiger

Synopsis: Frederic Brremaud and illustrator Federico Bertolucci turn their lens on a northeastern woodland setting to follow a single fox through its daily journey through the trees and along the seafront. Only this is not just another day -- a spectacular volcanic eruption throws the area into chaos, sending creatures of all kinds scurrying for safety. But the intrepid little fox surprising decides to run into the danger instead of away! What could send this tiny hunter towards the danger? This all-ages title will appeal to children and adults for its breathtaking illustration and gripping adventure drama.


Review: The cool thing about this series of graphic novels is the lack of dialogue. The story in each volume is told with beautiful artwork. In this second volume, a fox is followed during a volcanic eruption. There are many other animals featured trying to escape from the aftermath. 

The elements are shown at odds in beautiful panels. The nature is exquisite throughout the graphic novel. 

I give this graphic novel a 4/5. It's a very interesting way to tell a story. You can read it as quick or as slow as you wish depending on how much time you want to look at the details and contemplate the situations on each page.
