Vern and Lettuce

Publisher: David Fickling Books

Review

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.
