Description

Another Kind

Cait May and Trevor Bream

(Harper Alley)

In Another Kind, six ‘hybrid’ children search for a new place to call home.  Their background stories tell how they came to be prisoners in a government research facility.  Here, their special powers are examined and they are experimented upon.  But Another Kind is not your average monster story.
Tucked away in the government facility nicknamed the Playroom, the not-quite-human young people learn to control their strange and unpredictable abilities. Life is good, for the time being.  They are safe, at least and hidden from the prying eyes of a judgmental world.  That is, until a security breach forces them out of their home. They are thrust into the path of the Collector, a mysterious being with leech-like powers.  The Collector controls a team of hybrid hunters and is determined to capture the hybrids.
Can the group band together to thwart the Collector’s devious plan?  Or will they wind up as the newest additions to his collection?
This is a fabulously illustrated graphic novel with astounding art work.  It also works hard to establish each character, sharing their back stories to great effect.  The camaraderie of the group is beautifully described, while the underlying message of acceptance and celebration of difference is also much to be celebrated.
Bookwagon is proud to stock a large range of graphic novels for all ages.  Among those for older readers are the excellent Long Distance and No Country.
