Top Secret Summer

Book - 2005
Average Rating:
Rate this:
With an ensemble cast straight from a box of Animal Crackers, this is a delightful tale of ambition, morality, and self-discovery drawn in a decidedly beautiful fashion reminiscent of Richard Scary and Lewis Trondheim, yet utterly unique. Renier's fully-realized and compellingly adventurous narrative is at once both achingly naive and profoundly worldly. A remarkable debut, this tightly crafted novella is the real deal, and will charm your socks off.

A wonderfully exuberantly realized town full of equally well done animal people of EVERY sort, the story follows 4 kids pursuing, or trying to find, their respective passions but it has some interesting adults too. It is half kid's comic and half underground (and underwater too) and the whole thing is very enjoyable. It is a nice long story too.
