Vern and Lettuce

by Sarah McIntyre

Reading Age: 8+

Interest level: 8+

by Sarah McIntyre

A collection of humorous comic-strip stories that follow best friends Lettuce the rabbit and Vern the sheep as they meet a range of equally likeable characters.

 

Follow them as they dig to China, make costumes, learn to play an instrument and have fun in other short, self-contained adventures.

 

A great introduction to comics for young readers, as well as encouraging reluctant readers to see that entertainment can be found in books.

 

Sarah McIntyre's drawings are beautifully simple with an elegant, muted colour palette and lend themselves towards a younger audience although appealing to all ages.

 

This book is part of the DFC library: a collection of comics and graphic novels for children that were originally featured in a weekly comic.

 

Publisher: David Fickling Books

About the author

  • Sarah McIntyre

    Illustrator and writer Sarah McIntyre is easy to spot in her pointy glasses and hats. Her books include the comic Vern and Lettuce, four books with Philip Reeve, including Pugs of the Frozen North and Jinks & O'Hare Funfair Repair, and her picture books include There's a Shark in the Bath and Dinosaur Police. She loves creating books and comics with friends and getting inspired by batting around ideas and drawings with them.

     

    Sarah is immensely proud of Britain's amazing illustrators and how well their pictures tell stories. In 2015, she set up the #PicturesMeanBusiness campaign, calling for people to credit illustrators for their work.
