The Eternal Smile - Gene Luen Yang and Derek Kirk Kim

Three short graphic stories comprise Gene Luen Yang (American Born Chinese) and Derek Kirk Kim’s new book, The Eternal Smile (First Second, $16.95). All three stories question our idea of reality. In the cover story, a capitalist frog tries to manipulate others to make money off a religious phenomenon, only to discover that he himself is a pawn in someone else’s scheme. A young girl in the third story falls for an email from a “Nigerian prince.” She begins sending him all her money, then gets the best of the sender. A thought-provoking and fun collection, this book is good for graphic novel and non-graphic readers. Ages 13 up.
