children's graphic novel (friendship, imagination LGBTQA interest), 3rd/4th grade and up
It all starts with Jack, a kid who likes to pretend to be a Sorceress; soon other neighborhood kids--including kids of different ethnicities and body types and family types and various social and emotional misfits--are joining in to create their own costumes and personas. A big WIN for imagination and for inclusiveness. I would definitely like to see more of this, please please PLEASE.

Chad Sell illustrates and various authors contribute storylines for the different characters; these authors/illustrators are also a diverse bunch. ( )

"Comics creator and illustrator Sell teams up with 10 different authors to create an extraordinary linked anthology, seamlessly interweaving stories of unabashed joy and friendship.

In a suburban neighborhood, an ebulliently diverse group of children gathers with glee to create a vibrant world of pretend play, find themselves, and support one another. In the story written by Katie Schenkel, Sophie feels terrible that people say she’s too loud until she crafts a Hulk-like play identity known as “The Big Banshee.” Manuel Betancourt’s Miguel loves fairy tales and is thrilled when Nate asks him to play in “The Prince”—only to discover he’s actually been cast as the “magical pea” and not the romantic role he’d been dreaming of. Seth pretends to be a superhero to try to protect himself from his dad in Michael Cole’s “The Gargoyle,” while in Sell’s sole authored tale, “The Army of Evil,” Jack identifies as the Sorceress because “She’s what I want to be… / Magical. And powerful. And amazing.” Some neighborhood kids prefer STEM to fantasy while others build businesses; some have trouble making friends while others choose roles on the sidelines. Sell’s cheerful, friendly artistic style, with bold borders and bright colors that unite all the stories, will appeal to fans of Victoria Jamieson. Thoughtful representation provides a true diversity of body shapes and sizes, races and ethnicities (the majority of the cast is kids of color), gender identities and expressions, sexualities, and family structures. Bios of all 11 contributors conclude the book.

A breath of fresh air, this tender and dynamic collection is a must-have for any graphic-novel collection. (Graphic fantasy. 9-13)" From Kirkus, Kirkus Starred Review, www.kirkusreviews.com

The creation of the Cardboard Kingdom happens in the neighborhood over summer break. It spreads as each of the characters are developed and introduced. Many of the chapters are contributed by different graphic novelists.
The individual stories explore different topics within from bullying to inclusion to making friends to playing with gender roles within fairy tales. Characters appear within other character's stories. Starting with light text, the stories start to build together to tell a charming story of summer fun, inclusion, acceptance, and an epically fun final battle between good and evil. ( )

Liked this well enough. The story lines with the bully kinda bugged me, but otherwise they were all pretty great. I was especially impressed by the diversity of art (while still keeping very consistent colors and character designs!) in general, great compilation. ( )

This novel is geared toward the middle grades, but the stories within are safe for and will appeal to readers of all ages. Younger grades will enjoy the fun adventures and costumes. Middle graders will relate to some of the darker undertones their younger cohorts might miss. Themes such as being the new kids in the neighborhood, difficulty making friends, bullying, parental separation, gender conformity, and domestic violence are woven into the story at a kid’s perception level. The stories show that life throws some curve balls, but kids do have a voice and the ability to have some control over their rapidly changing world. Older kids and adults will simply enjoy the nostalgia of days gone by when summer was all about having fun together with a bunch of friends or a bunch of soon to be friends.
A breath of fresh air, this tender and dynamic collection is a must-have for any graphic-novel collection. (Graphic fantasy. 9-13)
