Reviews

Ghoulishly entertaining. The ending suggests that Pablo and Jane's misadventures are just beginningunlucky for them, but lucky for readers."Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW" Filled with alliteration and challenging vocabulary, the story blends adventure, a familiar Where s Waldo concept, myth, and expedition for a new, clever search-and-find. Original art and visually engrossing worlds will have readers visiting this book over and over again."Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW" With the frantic and enthralling pace of an animated cartoon, this graphic novel bends genres to create an exciting new format. [] The art is engrossing, with an abundance of detail and humor matched by its clever text, and the colors are elegant and bright. [] This work will engage readers on all levels with its thrilling adventure and interactive aspects."School Library Journal" Kids who love seek-and-find books will dig this offbeat offering."Booklist" With Pablo & Jane and the Hot Air Contraption, Jose Domingo takes the search-and-find concept, juices it up with his considerable artistic chops, and amalgamates it with a fun, high-octane story. [...] Domingo's created a delightful, lively book, one that's appealing, engaging and fun, and successful in all that it sets out to achieve."Zainab Akhtar""
