The Line by Paula Bossio This wordless picture book has a blank background throughout that thrusts the main character, a little girl, front and center. Graphite pencil makes up a majority of the illustration, with the exception of colored pencil to fill in the characters' clothes. The playful use of a line as a secondary character emphasizes the medium.

Cozy Little Book Journal: There are no words...CHILDREN'S BOOK REVIEW: The Line, by Paula Bossio. Imagine a line changing and becoming other things. Love wordless books.
A little girl stumbles onto a line ... and endless possibilities for fun! With a twist and a shake of the line, it becomes a slide, a giant bubble or even a jungle vine. But what -- or who -- could be at the other end? ~I don't normally like wordless books but the illustrations are so cute and lend themselves well to imagining your own story.
This is a wordless picture book, designed to get kids to use their imaginations by talking about the illustrations, which are simple line drawings.

Jane, le renard & moi, by Fanny Britt and Isabelle Arsenault, a graphic novel about a girl who finds hope in the world of Jane Eyre to escape the school bullying that she is victim of.
Graphic novel written by Fanny Britt, drawn by Isabelle Arsenault. Will be published in October 2012 at La Pastèque
Jane, the Fox, and Me Fanny Britt A wonderful graphic novel about acceptance, belonging, and the travails of youth, inspired by Charlotte Brönte’s Jane Eyre
GRAPHIC NOVEL Jane, the Fox and Me by Fanny Britt & Isabelle Arsenault - Helene is an outcast, picked on for being overweight, and she starts to believe some of the horrid things her classmates tell her, until she finds solace in Jane Eyre and a fox. More of a middle grade novel, but good for anyone needing a good read about a girl growing and accepting herself.

Old-Fashioned in a COOL, UNAPOLOGETIC, Way, and one of the most charming covers I've seen in 2013! The interior art's no less affecting. It's able to look modern without the coldness and white space of other picture books in the current "Extremist Minimalist" era of picture books in particular. #CoverLove

The Tiny King - The illustrations were wonderful and this book easily lends itself to being a concept book including shapes and numbers. The story was endearing at first, until the King gets married and then, I may be thinking too hard about this, but the mechanics of the relationship seem a little confusing to me. And the bath tub scene was especially... strange.
