Time has stopped in Anorev. Children - most of whom live below ground have played for so long the fun’s been sapped out of it, while machines (above ground) have been working so long they feel alive. One day though, 314 Dapper Men rain down from the heavens and with the help of Ayden (the only boy who still ask questions) and Zoe (a beloved robot girl) they work to make things right again.
This is a beautiful fantasy and great read for all ages. Interesting reading pairings might be: Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie; and Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll.
Awards include: starred reviews from Publishers Weekly and Booklist; Eisner Award for Best Graphic Novel.
