Musings of a Book Addict

I'm married to a scavenger of sorts and he often totes home rescued boxes of books that I paw through with shiny, hungry eyes. I pull out the odd and interesting and add them to my teetering stack.

Girls Are Weird

Girls Are Weird - Vane This appears to be a sample book showcasing Vane's illustration skills. The drawings have a high school notebook doodling quality (which is not a bad thing!). It includes a bi-lingual story (in Spanish & English) describing the weird and wonderful world of Girls. I think it might be a great book for a young woman wanting to be inspired in her drawing/comics creation. I also like that the sweet, syrupy little girl hero of the story has a dark side!
