    1. A dilemma. Hardbound, with thick, but not glossy paper. Lots of spaces between the sparse text and small cartoon illustrations. Perfect for writing. You’ll feel an itch to use this for note-taking, maybe even as a diary. Surprise people that you have a book-looking diary, or a notebook for a school subject, or something you write your groceries or expenses on. The spaces and the paper invite WRITING. Yet if you do write on the pages you mar the story since this is a comic book and the illustra [...]

    2. 4.5 StarsREVIEW:This book didn't have a summary or little "bio" so I went blindly into this book not knowing if it was fiction or nonfiction (like I thought). A.K.A. I didn't go on to and find out, I decided just to read the book and see what happened.Once I realized it was meant to be a humorous history of St. Nicholas, it was much more enjoyable. I loved the illustrations, they are simple, but unique and qwerkyEVER, the font choice was painfully difficult to read. I loved the font and the spe [...]

    3. Is this true? Does it matter? It's totally cute, it's very New Yorker cartoony (oh look at that, the artist is a New Yorker cartoonist), I like when the Italian guy yells at his pig. I still sort of felt like it was a vague outline of a story, so I was not in love, but, it was fun. I like Saint Nicholas. Yep.

    4. Proof positive that a comic book needn't be dense and wordy to be touchy. I read the entirety of this work while waiting for my mother at the Sheboygan library. But the way it FLOWED, the way it painted the entire tale (based on real historical documents; always a plus) with a kind of jovial goofiness made it, frankly, SING. In a way unique to comics. I was impressed.

    5. Not great. I mean, it's a cute little story I guess, but in no way did it need to be a book. Maybe a pamphlet or something. Art is meh. Actually, now that I'm writing this review, I'm surprised I gave it two stars. I suppose I liked it a little, but it's a bit hokey.

    6. One gets the impression that Saint Nick was a saint primarily on the moral authority of his wealth, which, while perhaps accurate, does somewhat detract from the shmaltzy ending this book attempts. Not without its humor, though.

    7. - cartooned telling of the life of St. Nicholas, apparently based on an actual ancient manuscript discovered by an Italian farmer (in a pot buried in his field) in 1989
