Starred Review from Kirkus for Elise Gravel’s The Great Antonio

July 26, 2016

Elise Gravel‘s forthcoming picture book/comic book, The Great Antonio, is a semi-biographical story of the famous Montreal strongman, Antonio. Kirkus praised The Great Antonio for it’s mixture of fact and fancy, Elise’s characteristic simple, fun illustrations, and the tall-tale effect of the story. They call The Great Antonio “A tribute as heartfelt as it is joyous and a fitting way to remember this larger-than-life performer,” and gave it a starred review.

You can read the full review on Kirkus’s site here.  The Great Antonio will be released this upcoming October, and you can pre-order it here.
