Manga/Graphic Novel/ Video Game Novel Challenge 2013 Review

So this year since I said that I would try to get to Level 3 of the Challenge That means I need to have at least 25 books read before the end of the year. That's at least 2 books a month. (and one extra one in at least one of those 12 months)   As a change from last year I'm gonna be putting the reviews up here as I get them done and then linking them in the monthly round-up at Mother/Gamer/Writer.  I also plan to try to remember my update my Challenge page at the end of the month. Want to see what the other people in the challenge are reading this month? Click here!

When people told themselves their past with stories, explained their present with stories, foretold the future with stories...the best place by the fire was kept for...The Storyteller! Archaia and The Jim Henson Company are proud to present all-new tales of fantastic wonder and extraordinary myth, as told from the tongue of The Storyteller and his loyal canine companion!

My Review:

I grew up on Jim Henson and the stories he told.  So it was with great anticipation that I started reading The Storyteller. 

I enjoyed all the stories in them.  Some I was familiar with and some I wasn’t.  There were also some that I was familiar with the name, but were changed.  All of them were fun and interesting.  Also they really reminded me of a lot of the Jim Henson work I had seen as a kid.  So reading them brought back found memories.
To a lesser degree I enjoyed the artwork as well.  Some of it was more cartoonish than others.  Some more detailed.  It’s an anthology of different writers and artists so I can understand that every story isn’t going to be the same.  It’s just some I enjoyed the artwork more than others.

I definitely recommend picking this one up.  It’s great for all ages. There’s nothing I wouldn’t say a kid shouldn’t read.  As for adults, I think they will enjoy the stories and the artwork as well as the nostalgia that comes with them.

I was lucky enough to get a digital copy of this through Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.
