Description

When Rumpus the rhinoceros calls out "sick" from work to spend the day pursuing his art, he doesn't expect to be eaten by a giant, flying whale, or end up in a reality completely different from his own. Nor does he realize he's following the footsteps of his beloved grandfather, who disappeared years ago. But when he finds himself on an island in need of help, oppressed by a regime that keeps the populace under control through mind-pacifying cupcakes, Rumpus realizes he can't just walk away. With the help of a tiny bee-eater, a raucous lion sage, and a brave and impetuous griffon, Rumpus learns that imagination, music, and art may just hold the key to a brighter future. The Resound Fields is an all-ages chapter book, mixing comic-style storytelling, full-page art, and murals (from around Kansas City, Missouri that Scribe painted) with a wild prose adventure that everybody of any age can enjoy!

Although this is a lovely book, it by no means is a graphic novel. It does have lovely drawings in it though. I would say this is just a regular book with lovely, artful pictures in it. There is a lot to read if the child is used to the reading speed given by graphic novels. The story is really nice, the artist rhino is a sweet character. The alternate reality is a nice setting.
