Kenneth Oppel has created many unusual protagonists during his stellar career but his inventiveness reaches a whole new level with Inkling an inkblot that is fully and vividly alive. –Quill and Quire Starred Inkling is at turns hilarious when he mimics the language of the books he reads and poignant when he wonders about his identity and purpose. The undercurrent of loss and grief not to mention questions of agency and personhood give the story weight but do not weigh it down. Smiths energetic and expressive ink drawings are the perfect complement and contribute to the storytelling in playful ways. Oppels latest is serious fun. –Booklist A unique story about the creative process and the journey through grief. –SLJ Sweet and funny. –Kirkus Reviews Inkling is so clever and intriguing that it deserves a bookshelf all to itself. Once youre done reading youll want to keep a very close eye on it. –Carl Hiaasen Newbery Honor Winner for Hoot Inklings evolving abilities model a realistic creative arc–the creature mimics its most recent literary meal (IM UTTERLY ENRAPTURED follows a stint with L.M. Montgomery) until it eventually discovers its own voice–even as the other characters work through grief and find their own stories.–Publishers Weekly An enjoyable read for budding young artists. –The Bulletin Inkling – by Kenneth Oppel (Hardcover)
