Praise for Explorer 2: The Lost Islands STARRED REVIEW S "A second gathering of new graphic tales, diverse of plot and atmosphere but thematically linked by island settings and every bit as stellar as its predecessor#133;First rate." -- Kirkus Reviews , starred review "With this second showcase Kibuishi affirms his editorial savvy for amassing talented creators and providing a vehicle to let them do what they do best: use comics to tell funny, thoughtful, and just plain good stories." -- Publishers Weekly , starred review "Lost Islands is a great sequel to The Mystery Boxes (Abrams, 2012) that is masterfully told and beautifully drawn. A must-have for any collection." -- School Library Journal , starred review "This sophomore effort's solid artwork, dialogue, and stories will still be a great introductory title for young or struggling middle-school readers starting to explore the world of graphic novels." -- Booklist "Variety of style is the real draw of Kibuishi's graphic anthologies, and tweens reluctant to stray from their comic-book favorites will find the gamut of visual presentations eye-opening." -- The Bulletin of The Center for Children's Books "Another satisfying anthology that will leave readers eager for the next." -- The Horn Book nbsp;
