My friend Kate at Midnight Book Girl has this feature called Short and Tweet Reviews where she reviews books in 140 characters or less, like a tweet. With this graphic novel, I didn’t have many notes written, so I thought I’d write a Short and Tweet Review for it.
So here’s my Short and Tweet Review for The Night Bookmobile:
The art reminds me of Waking Life. Love the concept, would love to see my bookmobile! Loved it until the end & I now don’t know how I feel.
