A beautifully drawn, wordless graphic novel about the adventures of a fairy and her dog-like companion. Adorable and imaginative, with just enough menace to give the story weight.

This is a beautiful wordless book. My granddaughter is 5 & we always make certain we check out at least 1 wordless book for her to read to her dog & have noticed the tremendous improvement in her literary understanding and skills since doing so. Although this particular book is very good, I found that she skipped a lot of the pages when reading to the dog, so this series (there are 3 volumes) may be better suited for a child of at least 6 years old.

This next volume starts where volume two left off, with the discovery of the castle image. Ivy and Sprout wish to unravel its mystery. In her search she meets the librarian, who is the narrator, and he tells them a fairy tale; which makes this a fairy tale within a fairy tale. For this part the art style changes into a more cartoony look.

A sci-fi element is added to the next chapter in the Korgi saga. Once again friendship, and being helpful proves her essential it is to the survival of these fairies. Just like the first, there are no words, but the pencil-drawn and shaded art is of the highest calibre.

Korgi is made up of extremely beautiful and detailed pencil drawings, which is important for it has no words, except in the introduction. This is not a detriment to it, for the story and feelings are perfectly expressed through the faces and body actions of the characters, especially Sprout, who really captures the joy a dog feels.The artist clearly has great love for both dogs and fairies!
