Even though it's won a bunch of awards because of the clever story design - horizontal, telling all three stories at once - I didn't enjoy it very much. It was wordless, and I love words, and the preschooler didn't understand the story. Definitely not a young kid book.

In this wordless graphic novel with a unique layout, a bird, cat, and dog share their intersecting tales. Events can either be read by following one of three rows, or by reading the panels in the normal way. Each row represents the perspective of one of the three creatures, but only by looking at everything do you get the full story. Colours define the individual tales, further drawing the eye across the page. While going about their lives, these three encounter another member of their species, and while they are all driven away by the end, the creators remind us that they too are heroes in their own version of the story. This is how we all perceive ourselves. Kids can learn from this lesson, and thanks to the cartoony look, kid-friendly adventures, and wordless format, the book can be enjoyed by a broad range of ages.
