The Barnabus Project
About this deal
e "Nothing is Impossible", though all of the pets are marked Failed Projects and are kept in Jars there will to escape and see the world there friend Pip, the cockroach has described helps them to escape.
The Darkest Dark is about a boy who transitions from being afraid of the dark to wanting to explore every corner of the universe. With his little trunk and a lot of cooperation and courage, Barnabus sets out to find freedom – and a place where he and his friends can finally be accepted for who they are. However, they are interrupted by the Green Rubber Suits who are trying to capture all the Failed Projects. Slater ( Escargot) creates a story to lose oneself in, an adventure packed with risk and possibility. This would be a brilliant book to use with older children to celebrate and embrace our differences which will lead to some very in depth and meaningful conversations.But as we got older we realized that the real superheroes in life are just ordinary people doing amazing things and things to make the world a better place.
Thanks to NetGalley, the publisher, and Terry Fan, Devin Fan, and Eric Fan for an ARC in exchange for an honest review. This is such a touching book and I found myself getting emotional whilst reading it – right from the start I was rooting for Barnabus to become free! The artwork, needless to say, was absolutely beautiful, and I enjoyed perusing these pages, poring over everything from the decorative endpapers to the detailed scenes with all the projects on the shelf, in their bell jars. The green rubber suits want to recycle the failed projects and turn them into perfect pets but Barnabus and his friends dash to freedom to find a world where they can be accepted for who they are. But Barnabus dreams of freedom and of a world away from the underground labs they are kept in, and he is not ready to go without a fight.
Breathtaking seascapes alternate with cozy scenes below decks as predators and prey huddle peaceably. In a world built for Perfect Pets, Barnabus is a Failed Project, half mouse, half elephant, kept out of sight until his dreams of freedom lead him and his misfit friends on a perilous adventure. The Barnabus Project is a children's book written and illustrated by The Fan Brothers Terry and Eric Fan, in collaboration with their youngest brother Devin Fan. Thanks to the enormously talented Terry and Eric Fan, who fully realize Slater’s text, The Antlered Ship takes young readers on an unforgettable adventure. A heartwarming celebration of friendship, resilience, and embracing our imperfections, The Barnabus Project is an absolute triumph!
As an adult I absolutely loved this story about imperfectness and the importance of being yourself, no matter what the world around you tells you. In spreads that evoke seafaring motifs from the Odyssey to Treasure Island, the Fan brothers ( The Night Gardener) lavish care on every delicate detail, from the ship’s rigging to the foam on the waves. From the imagination of two acclaimed picture book creators, together for the first time, this dreamlike picture book is a magical ode to Victorian lunch wagons. Born in Hawaii and raised in Toronto, he attended the Ontario College of Art and Design, where he studied illustration, sculpture and f ilm.Soon, she’s taking Milo out on walks with her family, watering Milo right on schedule, and seeing Milo grow and grow. Though the ghost’s parents were sheets, his great-grandmother was “an elegant lace curtain,” and at least one known ancestor was a checkered tablecloth. The Fans' marvelous illustrations sparkle with nuance, from lofting dandelion seeds to the Spider's dew-dropped web. I liked how they were darker in the first half of the book and then began to get brighter as the book (and the escape) went on.
