Illustrator of the Week: Explorer: The Mystery Boxes

Explorer: The Mystery Boxes edited by Kazu Kibuishi

Seven clever stories answer one simple question: what's in the box?

This is a graphic novel full of short stories by seven wonderful artists Kazu Kibuishi, Raina Telgemeier, Dave Roman, Jason Caffoe, Stuart Livingston, Johane Matte, Rad Sechrist, and Emily Carroll.  My favorite story was The Butter Thief, but I thought all were interesting and fun although I wouldn't say any were particularly deep and are clearly aimed at intermediate readers. So this week's illustrator of the week features all the artists from this collection.
