As a lover and advocate of comic books and visual literacy, I had a huge nerd out when I found these books. How amazing that someone else thinks comic books are so important that they're writing them for the littlest readers! I'm so excited to get to share my love of comic books with the next generation. As it says on the back of the book, learning to read pictures is the first step to learning to read words. And what a great message both of these books have! I'm Grumpy and I'm Sunny! are all about how being nice to others makes us feel better about ourselves. Gosh, I just can't say enough good stuff about these wonderful little books!— Heather
