Pants' Books & Stuff!

Hi there! I imagine you must be wondering what the heck is up with my blog name. The short answer is, Pants has become my internet handle in a lot of places where I hang out (somehow). I mainly read YA and comics, and I also frequently read speculative fiction of pretty much any kind. My other hobbies include watching anime and playing video games. Other random tidbits: I have a Bachelor's degree in English Literature and a Masters in Library and Information Sciences. I also have an affinity for tea.
Tiny Titans, Vol. 1: Welcome to the Treehouse - Art Baltazar, Franco While the art in this was super adorable and fun, I wasn't at all fond of the little vignettes. To me, a truly wonderful children's work is one that balances its appeal to both children as well as adults and this didn't deliver on the latter. The punchlines were either non-existent or just not funny. The activities included in the book were cute and a good idea considering the targeted age-group, so I thought that was clever.

Overall, it was okay, but I'm not chomping at the bit for more. It was cute, but it didn't have that spark with me, which is too bad because I really wanted to love this. This would however be an awesome primer to DC superheroes for the younger (~4+ yrs) crowd, especially with parents who might be worried about objectionable content.
