    Petro and the Flea King





  • Description:

    From an award-winning children's book author and illustrator comes a wordless graphic novel full of whimsy, tradition, and fun for all ages. Petro the lazy boy, goes on an out-of-this-world adventure as he tries to save a small town from the torments of the Flea King and his minions. 4.5 out of 5 Stars “...a fable with classic roots and modern touches that will feel timeless whenever it’s pulled off the shelf.” - Manhattan Book Review “This creative and imaginative graphic novel works on so many levels, and while it can’t really be read aloud, I’d venture to say that just about any kid would have a lot of fun narrating what is happening on each page.”- Readers’ Favorite 5 Stars! - LitPick Review In recognition of author's previous book, "A Box Story": Pinnacle Book Awards Winner 2012 for Children's Interest (March 2012) - From the National Association of Book Entrepreneurs 2012 Children's Book Award Finalist - From the National Indie Excellence Book Awards Literary Classics Seal of Approval (March 2012): Young audiences will surely find enjoyment within the pages of this clever little book. Kenneth Lamug's, A Box Story, comes highly recommended, and earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval. Kirkus Reviews (2012): Drawings and overall aesthetic are lovely...Lamug presents a minimalist, well-designed take on the elemental idea that children can have hours of fun with a plain cardboard box. ForeWord Reviews (June 2012): With a nod to the fact that containers often interest kids as much as what's inside, a web designer meditates on the many uses of this most practical (and abstract) of packages: "A box can keep your secrets . . . or reveal an unexpected surprise." Lovely and inspiring. This Literary Life (March 2012): Something that I found incredibly remarkable about the illustrations is that the box stays in the same place on every single page, but becomes something new and exciting every time you flip to a new page. This gives the reader the impression that it is in fact, the same box being used for a myriad of adventures.The words are simple but thought-provoking. They help build the imagination while simultaneously challenging the reader to find a purpose for their box. A purpose all of their own. Every child will want to build a life inside a box after reading this story.
