Booklist Online - Francisca Goldsmith

"Necessarily vastly abridged to maintain the publisher’s page count, and without referencing Kipling’s idiom, this graphic novelization nonetheless offers readers a rich retelling. Pages pop with nicely varied frames that befit their content, and characters’ speech and captions are appropriately assigned rather than being seemingly random text attributions. The deeply and broodingly colored images, however, are what make this a good read, with animal-appropriate movement, expressive faces, and animated body language. While certainly no substitute for Kipling’s own storytelling prowess, this is, nonetheless, a worthwhile version to provide for visual learners, whether as a lead-in to the original or as a stand-alone experience. The tight binding may frustrate some but the book won’t wear out." - Booklist Online

Good Comics for Kids Blog, School Library Journal - Peter Gutierrez

"The Emperor’s New Clothes. With this leveled title as well as The Jungle Book, The Princess and The Pea, and a version of The Ugly Duckling well suited to the Nickelodeon crowd, Stone Arch has added new energy and artistry to the business of adapting classics for young readers (although at fewer than 30 story pages, it’s a stretch to call them graphic “novels”). The backmatter includes discussion questions and writing prompts. http://www.schoollibraryjournal.com/blog/540000654/post/220052222.html" - Good Comics for Kids Blog, School Library Journal
