Synopsis

Sweaterweather by Sara Varon

Back before Odd Duck, before Robot Dreams, Sara Varon created Sweaterweather. This endearing, quirky volume is a captivating look into Varon's creative process. It combines short comics stories, essays, and journal entries, and invites the reader into the world of Sara Varon: where adorable, awkward anthropomorphic animals walk the streets of Brooklyn and a surprising, sideways revelation is waiting around every corner. First Second is proud to introduce Sweaterweather to a new generation of readers in this gorgeous jacketed hardcover, with a new cover and plenty of new content.

Reviews

Varon shows a knack for both verbal and visual storytelling.

Varon's characters, their sheepish expressions, and their animated conversations are unfailingly delightful, while flashes of graphic inventiveness--a fake flyer bound into the book, a set of carefully engineered paper dolls--are icing on the cake. --Publishers Weekly, starred review Varon shows a knack for both verbal and visual storytelling. --Kirkus Reviews A cozy collection with something for all ages. --Booklist Varon fans will be fascinated by all the insider information, and developing artists will appreciate the range of styles, materials, color choices (especially the insight on how single colors can carry a whole story) and the sense of developing craft over the decade or so this book covers. --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books A highly recommended purchase for fans of Varon's previous works and for lovers of offbeat, big-hearted comics. --School Library Journal Varon's characters, their sheepish expressions, and their animated conversations are unfailingly delightful, while flashes of graphic inventiveness a fake flyer bound into the book, a set of carefully engineered paper dolls are icing on the cake.
