Praise For Sunday Love

"In this slapstick picture book, printed in black, white, and red, lovelorn Bruno the Burglar—in prison stripes, mask, and ball-and-chain—uses a spoon to tunnel out of the Big House on Valentine's Day. Employing comic-style panels, Paul (The Crow [A Not So Scary Story]) creates a wordless tale, except for some sound effects like the “wwwhee waaaa” of the prison siren and pursuers' shouts of “Halt! Halt!” At last Bruno reaches his destination, an ice-cream parlor that reveals his true love (and the title's double meaning)."--Publishers Weekly

"This graphic novel in picture-book format is a slapstick tale of a lovelorn burglar digging his way out of "The Big House" on Valentine’s Day. Bruno’s quest for the mysterious object of his affection unfolds in a skirmish reminiscent of the Keystone Cops...The bold, shrewd use of just three colors–black, white, and red–subtly underscores the meaning of every drawing. This clever caper includes many amusing visual details for the easy-reader set and for graphic-novel fans."--School Library Journal
