(Taken from GoodReads)
Middle Grade Graphic Novel/Comic. Based on the Bark and Howl FaceBook series, The Big Adventure.
A new kind of graphic novel, with a new kind of eco-hero. 3-D Suki & Finch travel the globe investigating the welfare of all 36 species of wild cats. They start in Canada where they gather data on the Cougar, Bobcat and Canada Lynx – Volume One. It’s one big adventure (8 Volumes in all), full of exciting travel and lots of misadventures. Learn about the threats facing all wild cats – loss of habitat, poaching, trophy hunting – set against the backdrop of an ongoing drama. Linked to Google Maps, readers can find Suki & FInch in the Great Bear Rainforest, crossing the North Pole, and landing on the Volga River in Moscow. In Volume Two they’re off tracking Eurasian Lynxes and Siberian Tigers in Russia, Snow Leopards in Mongolia, Asiatic Golden Cats in China and the rare Pallas’s cat in Nepal. Things never go as planned.
What did you think of the book?
Wasn’t entirely sure what to expect, but I wasn’t disappointed with the results. Definitely a new kind of graphic novel for kids that I think they’ll gravitate to. It would really be good to hear that there’s a tie-in interactive website to go along with this series – kinda like with the wildly popular The 39 Clues series.
Either way, an unexpectedly good read! Great for kids.
