If you're a fan, you are already sold on this book. If you're lukewarm on Johnny Cash, there is plenty here to pique your interest. Hilburn's long association with Cash gives him a deep insight into Cash's character as well as career. Johnny Cash put plenty of his own words out there - autobiographies, interviews, songs - but an outside eye and ear discern more warmth, humor, and drive.

My reading habits swing from children’s literature and young adult to classics and nonfiction, with the occasional novel. Let me know of any good beginner graphic novels and I’ll try something new. My all-time favorite author is Frank Herbert, pulling slightly ahead of Jane Austen, along with Laura Ingalls Wilder, Barbara Kingsolver, Ursula K. Le Guin, Helen Hooven Santmyer, and Mary Stewart. Quirky investigators like Malcolm Gladwell are quickly making a place in my heart.
I admit, I bought Vol. 1 only because there was a baby on the cover. Volume 2 is an even better romp. The sci-fi/fantasy setting is intriguing and the illustrations feel indulgent. This graphic novel neophyte is hooked.
This clever picture book gives kids a lot to explore, both in the graphic storytelling and busy pictures. The two-stories-in-one storytelling also gives parents an opportunity to talk about feelings with young children.
