Book Reviews and Guest Strip by Jim Ottaviani and Maris Wicks

Unshelved Book Club

Today's guest comic review of The One And Only Ivan comes to us courtesy of Jim Ottaviani and Maris Wicks, creators of Primates. Jim also authored this past review of The Double Helix. We love Jim.

Elsewhere in this week's Unshelved Book Club you'll find books about a man who takes in two pregnant girls, a fractured U.S.where fiefdoms are ruled by those with superpowers, skiing squirrels, a family reassembling a famous flying car, cartography, a love that lasts seven lifetimes, a young man in hospice care whose uncle shows him how to live, and a book of poems made of words formed from letters found in a single word.

Remember, when you see a sponsored book marked Giveaway it means you have a chance to get a free copy. Look for the friendly yellow icon!
