Guest Post: Chuck from WhatchaReading Talks Zoötrope

Today, my good friend Chuck posted about reading Zoötrope by Andrea Tsurumi, which looks at a troupe of talking animals getting ready for a big performance.  I loved Chuck’s review, so I had to share!

I’m not usually the one around here who talks children’s lit, that falls on the ever capable shoulders of Rosemary , but while looking over the ComiXology Submit Releases from last week this book caught my eye…

With decidedly surreal and moody artwork, and a somehow both soothing and frenetic pace, Zoötrope tells the story of a theater company on the night of a big performance. The troupe is populated by talking animals and the performance is anything but smooth sailing.

Read the rest of his review over at WhatchaReading, then go check out the story!
