Growing up I watched the film adaptations for all the books mentioned below, they were a definitive part of my childhood. So I was excited to read the stories that they were inspired by, and what can I say except that overall I was left rather disappointed. E.B. White had quite an odd story style, it would jump about quite a bit (especially in Stuart Little). I also wonder what set off his love for talking animals. I have recently learned that the reason Stuart Little is quite rushed is because for some reason he felt like he was about to die and had to finish. But then went on to live for many years after. That being said, if I were about to die. I would not want to compromise my work in such a manner as he did with Stuart. I’m glad I read them, but once was probably enough. The Trumpet of the Swan and Charlotte’s Web I will probably read to my future children. But as for Stuart, I might just stick to the film.

So I have decided instead of having my graphic novel reviews solely on Goodreads, I might start doing little batches of mini reviews here. I might try and have them all linked to a similar theme or series in the future (what do you guys think, leave any thoughts or suggestions in the comments below).
The theme for this batch of mini reviews, are that these are all graphic novels I received from Andrews McNeel Publishing through Netgalley, in exchange for my honest opinion. I thoroughly enjoyed all of them, and would highly recommend reading any of these.They all brought a smile to my face.
