Hope Larson’s art just isn’t for squares.
That may be why you won’t find many at all in her 112-page sophomore book, Gray Horses.
Following French exchange student Noemie through her forays into the mysteries of Onion City (A.K.A. Chicago), readers are treated to some sweet visual candy, with pages of panels that break out of the six-panel grid and roll and flow gently into one another. But it is in Noemie’s dreams, of a dark-haired girl named Marcy and, of course, horses, that the visuals are taken to someplace truly unique.
Gray Horses is worth buying simply so you can read it more than once.
