EARLY READER GRAPHIC NOVEL APPEAL: A perfect pick for reluctant and newly independent readers, Burt is an accessible and short graphic novel.
DYNAMIC ART: John Martz has used a limited palette to create an subdued atmosphere, but his goofy style is friendly and widely appealing.
ADOPTION/FOSTER CARE STORY: Burt’s use of story to make sense of his situation, and the loving care of his foster mother Lydia, sensitively depict the struggles of foster children and their guardians in a way that young readers will easily relate to.
THOUGHTFUL AND SWEET: A powerful story with an affecting message that’s subtle yet accessible.
MULTIPLE AWARD—NOMINATED TUNDRA ARTIST: John is not only a fan favorite in the kids’ book and comic worlds, having earned fantastic reviews for his work in How to Give Your Cat a Bath and contributed to MAD Magazine, he’s also Tundra’s art director and a tastemaker in both communities.
LOWER PRICE POINT RE-RELEASE: Previously published in Canada by a small press, this new edition is attractively priced at a newly accessible price point.
