Luke on the Loose

Harry Bliss

Graphic Novel

Ages 4 to 6

Toon Books, 2009, 978-1-935179-00-9

  Luke is at the park with his father one day when his father meets up with a friend and the two men begin to chat. They talk and talk, “boring dad talk,” and while they are busy Luke takes off, chasing some pigeons.

  Luke’s father looks around just in time to see his little son bolting across the park in a cloud of pigeon feathers. People walking their dogs, pedestrians, and everyone in Luke’s path are sent flying as the little boy chases pigeons through the park and through the streets of New York City. Who knew that one little boy could cause so much chaos?

  This book provides emergent readers with a fresh new way to explore the world of books. Some learning-to-read titles are a little dull. Not this one! In this title, readers are pulled from page to page as they follow Luke’s adventures through the streets of a big city. The language used is engaging, and the artwork is a joy to look at and funny. Adult readers might like to know that some very famous cartoon characters make cameo appearances in the story.
