Jill Thompson, a graduate of the American Academy of Art in downtown Chicago, has spent all of her adult life and most of her youth drawing comics, having worked as a professional in the field since the ripe old age of 15. Over the years she has garnered critical acclaim on titles such as THE SANDMAN, SWAMP THING and WONDER WOMAN. She still lives and works in Chicago, where she is currently developing new SCARY GODMOTHER stories.From Booklist:
*Starred Review* It’s not every day you see a work that manages to capture universal themes and imagery in a distinct and wonderfully sophisticated style, and that reinvents the familiar in a wild crackle of creative energy. But you’ll see it four times over in this new collection compiling all four of Thompson’s original Scary Godmother stories plus extra goodies. Told in often-rhyming prose and word balloons on vibrant pages that balance a visually lavish picture book aesthetic with sequential-art page composition, the stories burst with complex color tones and creepy cartoon figures. Whether little Hannah is giving the mean big kids a scare with the help of Scary Godmother, putting a stop to cousin Jimmy’s Grinchian plan to stop Halloween from coming, helping find out who Scary Godmother’s secret admirer is, or taking over Halloween chores when the Boo Flu strikes, the wonder of secret childhood friends and the thrill of ghosts and goblins are magically evoked and rendered. With a sense of weird, Seussian fun, Thompson casts Halloween monsters as the most inviting group of playmates ever, and young readers will want to visit them again and again. This book deserves a prime place in every graphic novel collection. Grades 3-5. --Jesse Karp
