The Cardboard Kingdom Reviews
Any kid that gets their hands on this bold, imaginative graphic novel is probably a kid who also has access to some sort of cardboard box.
And so, their own cardboard kingdom can begin...
The fact that this book isn’t just for rich kids, or white kids, or boys... it’s for EVERYONE. All you need is a cardboard box and a big imagination.
I love this comic so much I don't even know what to say. It has an incredibly diverse cast and the stories are beautifully honest (sometimes emotional). There's someone for almost any kid reader to connect with in that neighborhood. This should be in ALL libraries.
I liked that the content of this graphic novel could be enjoyed by younger readers, however, I’m not sure they would necessarily understand all that is going on in the story. So many inferences they would need to make! I enjoyed the book and the creativity it could bring out in kids who read it. I know our house has fun whenever there are good cardboard boxes sitting around!
Objectively maybe 4-4.5 stars, but this gets the bump, because 1) the emotions are 5 stars, and 2) so many collaborative projects don’t live up to hopes, but this, this is how you do it.
The Cardboard Kingdom is Phineas and Ferb meets Lumberjanes! This super diverse graphic novel tackles several issues grappling modern children including gender identity and bullying, and will inspire a plethora of extravagant summer adventures.
I was given an ARC of this book from the publisher in return for an honest review.
Okay, so I’ve been a fan of Chad Sell’s art for quite some time now, as I think most drag fans online probably are!

I genuinely look forward every month to getting that envelope in the mail with my postcard sketches and prints, and even just interacting with Chad when I make my monthly cu ...more
This book celebrates imagination in a series of short graphic stories, some wordless, some not. It's fun to see the children's play change and develop. It will be fascinating to talk with readers about not just the children in the book, but also the adults.
Such a delightful book!
