Poesy guest-reviews the new Ariol book

Our favorite six-year-old guest reviewer, Poesy Taylor Doctorow, is back with a review of the latest volume of Ariol, a French kids' comic that Papercutz is bringing out in English.

Last February, my daughter guest-reviewed her favorite kids' comic, the Ariol books, which Papercutz are translating from French and republishing in English. She's just read book four, A Beautiful Cow, and she and I sat down on the balcony one night last week before bedtime so she could review it (she liked it a lot -- I had to shout at her to stop reading it in the middle of the video!).

About the Author

I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
