Owly, Volume 4: A Time to Be Brave

Introduce the kids to highbrow comics.

ShareThis

Those darn kids—they outgrow everything so fast. Here's a comic they'll enjoy at almost any age, and not just because there aren't any words to trip them up (or make them feel too old). These elegant illustrations will remind you of fables and nursery rhymes. Here our gentle protagonist Owly (he is an owl) meets a new visitor to the forest who is misunderstood because of his frightening looks. Spoiler alert: Friendship conquers all.

Owly, Volume 4: A Time to Be Brave
By Andy Runton, Top Shelf Productions, $10.
