The Cardboard Kingdom Reviews

  • Julie Kirchner

    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!

    Such a delightful book!

  • Christiana

    This was fun! I'm super impressed how seamlessly Sell and the other authors wove together diverse characters with diverse backgrounds perfectly into this setting (a neighborhood street where all the kids play together over the course of a summer). It was no big deal in the best way possible and gives me hope that other authors (graphic novel and otherwise) sit up and take notice.

    I'm ashamed to admit that I've been avoiding reading this, but damn if this book didn't deliver.

    Where imagination and friendship rule, "Cardboard Kingdom" invites readers to experience each kids' troubles, adding heart to an otherwise light book.

    What a joy to read! I love how these characters are fleshed out chapter by chapter. The storytelling is sweet and heartbreaking and innocent. A grand slam for all ages!

  • Amanda

    I loved pretty much everything about this, the art, the imagination theme, the different representation, not only of race and orientation, but also of home life, married parents, divorced parents, single parents, grandparents. As much as it was about kids playing make-believe it was also about families and finding ways to acceptance. A really strong message cleverly hidden in a fun and goofy story of kids playing a game as old as time. Highly, highly recommend.

    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! And because I’m a fan of his art, and because I love to support queer artists whenever and however I can, I signed up to support Chad on Patreon towards the end of 2017, which has been one fantastic investment! 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
