I grew up loving the Just-So stories and enjoyed seeing how the stories can be adapted to the graphic novel format. Appreciated that at the end of every story there are facts, vocabulary definitions, discussion questions, and personal research ideas. There are some interesting online eBook resources as well for this story. My son explored the eBook editions this summer and we enjoyed them quite a bit.
