Praise for "Explorer 2: The Lost Islands"
"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."
"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"
