Praise for Explorer 2: The Lost Islands
STARRED REVIEWS
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...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
