Review: Lumberjanes/Gotham Academy

Lumberjanes/Gotham Academy Lumberjanes/Gotham Academy by Chynna Clugston Flores
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have loved the Lumberjanes franchise for many years. After taking some time off to read other series, I'm back and went with the this crossover event with Gotham Academy - a series I thought looked great, but never fit into my overcrowded comic book plate. And you know what? THIS WAS AMAZING.

The Lumberjanes feel was still present - can't speak about the Gotham Academy feel - but it was wacky and sweet. Lumberjanes is ever telling stories of friendship and being true to yourself. This was doubly true for this collection.

I hope these two gangs of adorable young people team up again.

This is a great read for anyone wrestling with expectations - parental to societal.

Frederick, A Virtual Puppet Performance - Read by Michael Shannon

WOW...this is my first post during the Coronavirus pandemic! I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. Thanks to the Chicago Children’s Theatre, the city’s largest professional theater devoted exclusively to children and families, for launching a new YouTube channel, CCTv: Virtual Theatre and Learning from Chicago Children’s Theatre. To kick if off we are treated to Frederick. Here's hoping this helps with your little ones. Or is a comfort to everyone of all ages. Chicago Children’s Theatre’s all-new virtual puppet performance was created while all of the artists were sheltering in place, working with resources limited to what they had in their homes or on their laptops. Frederick is directed by CCT Co-Founder and Artistic Director Jacqueline Russell. Puppets and sets were designed, built and puppeteered in a home studio by Grace Needlman and Will Bishop, CCT’s Director of Production, the creative team behind CCT’s annual series of Beatrix Potter puppet show
