The Encyclopedia of Early Earth

The Encyclopedia of Early Earth is by Isabel Greenberg. A charming graphic novel relating the supposed-mythology of Early Earth. Many of these tales will sound eerily familiar, although the names have been amusingly changed. The tales are all linked by the plight of a storyteller who is traveling from the North Pole to the South Pole to find the missing piece of his soul, while being both aided and impeded by the gods. The stories are entertaining and the artwork is lovely.

Ratings: 9th grade - 8 out of 10.
