Thank you Netgalley and the publishers Oni Press for providing me with the digital arc of this wonderful book. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The story, the illustrations, the colour palette everything was just gorgeous and so vibrant. Can't wait for the next book in this series.

SO many wonderful lessons in this sweet little book! The illustrations were darling, and the message of supporting those in your life was an important one. I enjoyed that rather than being told what they needed to learn, the characters lived and learned and reflected on what the experience had taught them. My son enjoyed the facial expressions of the characters and enjoyed their interaction. The style of the book was appealing, with an almost comic book layout. Overall, this book was sweet and amazing. It would make a great bedtime book.

Tiny Fox and Great Boar is part picture book part graphic novel. The format is that of a graphic novel/ comic book as well as the length. However, the prose and art is more akin to a picture book. The artwork is delightful and fun. The use of color is a fantastic example of how to convey emotion and changing seasons. The message in the book is that of being a good friend, confronting challenges, being brave, and working together.

This book is a great example of how simple prose can still be well done and not simplistic. Children and adults will enjoy this adventure.

One lovely autumn day tiny Fox is hanging out under his favourite tree. He lives a solitary life where he is happy and very glad to do things he loves to do solo. Along comes a Great Boar who decides he too would like to stay under the same tree! Little Fox finds it hard to share his time and space with this intruder.

As time goes by Great Boar disappears and little Fox has no idea where he went. He begins to miss his tree-mate and comes to the conlusion that it's more fun having someone there with him than being alone.

Finally Great Boar reappears and he too confesses that he missed little Fox. They realize that life is better together, rather than apart. The now two friends help each other to be brave and co-exist. They now experience the world and all the adventures it has to offer as a duo.

The watercolour illustrations are beautiful and the format of this first book in the series is create in a graphic novel, comic book style. I love the tender, positive message and I look forward to more books by this talented author/illustrator. I highly recommend "Tiny Fox and Great Boar Book One: There! "

What gorgeous watercolour illustrations!

The story of the Tiny Fox and the Great Boar is not only about friendship. Sometimes we are forced to leave our comfort zone by external circumstances. Other times, even though it would be easier and safer to follow our daily routine, it's worth choosing the road less traveled. Tiny Fox and Great Boar can show a shy kid that amazing experiences await them if they are brave enough to explore new things.

A cute story with stunning artwork.

Many thanks to NetGalley and OniPress for an Advance Reading Copy.
