Return of the Dapper Men - Jim McCann, Janet K. Lee There's no question that Return of the Dapper Men is beautiful. The art is often stunning, in fact, and I'd highly recommend it for just the art alone. The writing, however, left me cold. It is, I think, overexplained, in a way that doesn't trust the lovely art to do its part of the storytelling. This is a children's book, so it may work on that level, but for me, I would have rather that the art be given more freedom to stand on its own in the narrative.
