Book Reviews

Unshelved Book Club

This week in the Unshelved Book Club you'll find books about orphans in Pittsburgh, teens vs. aliens, a day in the life of a toddler, an abducted boy who returned home after seven years, a history of everyday foods, a lonely mouse, the solar system, and the Louisiana Purchase.

And here's a bonus picture of Jon Chad, author of this week's featured book Leo Geo.

Jon Chad

(Notice the CMYK tatoos on his left arm.) I had a chance to meet Jon at TCAF earlier in the month, and picked up the four issues of Bikeman that he's posing with, along with several of his amazing minicomics.

I'll be posting about TCAF, along with several interviews I did there, over the next few weeks.
