Equipped with a backpack full of supplies, Polo sets off on a little boat--and on a series of delightful adventures that take him across (and under) the ocean, to an island and a frozen iceberg, to space and home again, with a world of magical encounters along the way. Polo's journey is packed with incident and expression; 80 pages of seamless, satisfying picture storytelling are perfectly targeted to the youngest reader. Unique, dynamic, and playful, The Adventures of Polo calls to mind the worlds of film animation, comics, and classic books from Harold and the Purple Crayon to The Snowman--and has style, appeal, and substance all its very own.

About the Author:

Regis Faller studied at the Ecole des Arts Decoratifs in Strasbourg, France, and is the illustrator of over 20 books for children. He lives in Paris.

From Booklist:

PreS-Gr. 2. Polo is a smart little dog who leaves his island tree house looking for adventure. His backpack bulges with supplies for every situation--his xylophone, which he uses to play in a monkey jazz band; the sticks and string he pulls out for a lava-side hot-dog roast. He sails through fog, rides a balloon, meets a snowman, and climbs a ladder to the moon, making new friends along the way. Although this may look like a picture book in terms of size, it's really a graphic novel. Faller uses sequential art to perfection in a charming, exceptionally clever, well-told story totally reliant on the art. The tale was originally published in France, but the story has universal appeal, and children will easily relate to the tales' strong sense of adventure and share Polo's curiosity about the wider world they don't yet know. Best of all, the wordless approach gives children space to add their own imaginative interpretations to the pictures. Tina Coleman
