    Bonbon: I have a purple candy shell, a sugary candy body, and not one but TWO sparkling candy eyes! Bunbun: Oh my carrots, a talking candy! Add two bowties--and Team Fancy is born. The illustrations are super cute and the story is a positive one about enjoying friendship. They definitely live in a world full of sprinkles and sunshine (even sunshine wears a bowtie). Really positive without much substance. Will definitely appeal to the chapter book set.

    Adorable and fun graphic novel debut from Jess Keating (whose middle grade novels I already adore)! You don’t need expensive and/or elaborate gear to be on Team Fancy — all you need is a little imagination, enthusiasm and a kindred spirit. I could easily see this book pairing up with a creative hands-on activity: putting together a Team Fancy Party!

    Bunbun is a very bubbly bunny-- but no matter how friendly she is to the clouds, the flowers, and the birds, she still winds up lonely. One day she says hello to a colorful rock... but it wasn't a rock-- it was a Bonbon! Bonbon is a VERY fancy candy... so now that they have each other, they get to be the fanciest of friends! Fans of Narwhal and Jelly are sure to love Bunbun & Bonbon. Bunbun is a very bubbly bunny-- but no matter how friendly she is to the clouds, the flowers, and the birds, she still winds up lonely.

I liked the illustrations and colouring, however the choice of bonbon as a main character just doesnt hit home for me. I especially didn't enjoy when the fancy candy bonbon admits to not liking carrots so instead they eat donuts for lunch. This is not what I want to teach my already sugar obsessed child.

    Graphic Novel I received an electronic ARC from Graphix through Edelweiss. Terrific language level for lower elementary and emerging readers. They may need help with some of the "fancy words" but the rest will be at their level. Bunbun wants a friend and discovers Bonbon in the woods. The rabbit and the candy set off on a variety of adventures together and discover that friendship is the most important adventure of all. Brightly colored illustrations draw readers in to share in the adventures. Graphic Novel I received an electronic ARC from Graphix through Edelweiss.

    Really cute illustrations. Unfortunately, the storyline is lacking. Aside from some of the usual friendship themes, it doesn’t really have much of a plot, unless you count the whole... three panels? Where BonBon is nervous about telling Bun Bun a secret. Even for the intended age group, I’d be surprised if they go for this when books like “The Itty Bitty Kitty Princess” are around (cute, and an actual storyline!).

    Bunbun is a lonely bunny in want of a friend until Bonbon comes along. These two fancy friends decide to have a fancy party and make another friend in the process. Fancy Nancy fans who enjoy the big French words will appreciate the vocabulary in this. This is like a sugar rush in book form. It's an abundantly cute and friendly story, and bursting with cutesy illustrations and bright colors. Hand this to graphic novel fans who love cute friendship stories.

    This is a tale I'd catagorize as "High Silliness." Anything goes and nothing is over the top in regards to silliness. The wackier and more excited the better. My son and I both like these because we very easily tip over into High Silliness when we're getting worked up and it feels delightful to just let go and be super silly at times. If you like Johnny Boo then I think you'll like Bunbun and Bonbon. Here's to Fancy Friends! This is a tale I'd catagorize as "High Silliness."

    Adorable friendship stories between a bunny named, BunBun, and BonBon, which is a type of fancy chocolate candy. This book is broken down into five short stories (some very short) on their fancy adventures and donut lunch. An excellent starter graphic novel. I think second graders would love this series.

    As an adult who enjoys children’s literature, I wanted to give this one 2 stars. The illustrations are bright and colorful, but the actual story of this early graphic novel is pretty bland and, at times, annoying. However, as a librarian who frequently recommends books to emerging readers, I decided to rate it 3 stars. The artwork will draw children into the story, and the layout and vocabulary are appropriate for younger readers who are starting to read on their own (with the exception of the fa As an adult who enjoys children’s literature, I wanted to give this one 2 stars.

However, as a librarian who frequently recommends books to emerging readers, I decided to rate it 3 stars. The artwork will draw children into the story, and the layout and vocabulary are appropriate for younger readers who are starting to read on their own (with the exception of the fancy words part, which would require adult help...and even some adults may struggle, I know I don’t know how to pronounce ‘chapeau’). The simplicity and repetitiveness, which I found annoying as an adult, will actually help children become proficient with their reading. There are definitely other early readers/chapter books/graphic novels that use simple vocabulary but still have engaging stories. This is not one of them, but it’s still good to have on hand, especially since there aren’t as many graphic novels for beginning readers out there.

    Remember the magical times when you were a little kid and you would hang out with your best friend, eat a ton of candy, and run around like crazy because the world was happy and bright and fun? This book encapsulates that feeling!

    Bunbun is the happiest bunny, but is feeling a little lonely when he happens upon a wonderful talking Bonbon and they became immediate friends. This is an adorable new graphic novel / beginning reader series with bright bold illustrations and frequent use of exclamation points that will definitely appeal to young readers. Perfect for fans of Narwhal and Jelly. *Thank you to Edelweiss+ and the publisher for a digital copy. All opinions are my own.*

    Short chapters, easy text and cute animals make this title a good bet for graphic novel lovers who are newly independent readers. Bunbun is a cute white bunny who is looking for a friend, and finds one in Bonbon, a talking purple candy. They both love fancy things and eating donuts for lunch. Large graphic panels with simple text, cute colors and funny adventures combine for an easy reader high on appeal.

    While there are some great parts to this book, it really is a major overload for sugar. It's cute. It's sweet. There is a lot going on, but on a simple level. There is basic text, but it is for the reader who is proficient in a "middle early reading level." It also could work as a one-on-one reading. I am not the reader for this book, but I know there is an audience out there. While there are some great parts to this book, it really is a major overload for sugar. It's cute. It's sweet.

    A super cute beginning graphic novel that reminded me of Narwhal & Jelly, Elephant & Piggie etc. Lots of hopping, lots of excitement over sugar and sparkles, lots of fancy word use that will surely stump younger readers but open up great discussion and improve their vocabulary too. Very fun start to a new series.

    At first I thought “a beginning reader graphic novel! Awesome!” But then there were really hard to read (fancy) words that make me think it’s not really a beginning reader book. It’s kind of all over the place. Kids might enjoy the silliness but I found it a bit too random. I also didn’t like that one of the characters is a talking piece of candy...

    Bunbun is an adorable and perfect rabbit, but he really wants a friend. He discovers Bonbon (a talking piece of candy) one day and they become best, fancy friends and start using fancy words, listening to fancy music and having fancy parties. This book is EXTRA cute and EXTRA enthusiastic. Be prepared. For sparkly donuts.

    Bunbun had everything—except a best friend, until one day when… was that a rock talking? No, it was a purple candy! Or technically, a “bonbon”. Introducing fancy friends, Bunbon and Bonbon, a conceit that is perfectly absurd in the best, kid-like way. :)

    A wonderful early reader graphic novel here that explores friendship and finding your groove. Thanks to @kidlitexchange for this early review copy! • I’ll be buying this for my elementary library for sure! How can you not love Jess’s work?!

    I received an eARC courtesy of Graphix & Edelweiss in exchange for my honest review. A silly tale of friendship that is sure to delight kids. The illustrations were super colorful and vibrant. For libraries: This is a great example of an early reader meets graphic novel.

    I am excited about a graphic novel for our younger students! I have a feeling this book will fly off our shelves -- the amazing illustrations, the right amount of words for our younger students and a cute topic will be a winning combination! Two thumbs up!
