Game for Adventure: Andrew the Seeker by Lee Nordling –ADVISABLE

Nordling, Lee  Game for Adventure: Andrew the Seeker 32 pgs. Graphic Universe (Lerner), 2017. $7.00  Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G Violence: G GRAPHIC NOVEL
This wordless graphic novel tells the story of a little boy who thinks he keeps seeing a monster, but when he turns around it is gone. Eventually he follows it into the woods, where it keeps eluding him, though the reader can see how very close it is. Fed up, the boy goes home, prepared to give up. Then the monster gives him an big clue and an invite.
I always like wordless books. I often use them as an activity for across many grades. I like that this one has a very simple plotline with emotions younger students would have an easier time relating to. The illustrations are very bright and basic. Although the plot line is appropriate for Pre-K, they may have trouble following the graphic novel format on their own.
