Ape & Armadillo Take Over The World: TOON Level 3
A new offering in the trend of comic book/graphic novels for beginning readers, is Ape and Armadillo Take Over the World.
In this book, Armadillo plays the role of the bossy, overbearing friend who dominates playtime and tends to steamroll his friend, Ape. Armadillo is determined to be an evil mastermind and concocts a plan that involves Ape doing all his dirty work. When Ape objects, they argue it out for a bit before Ape stomps off to do his own thing.
Armadillo seeks out his friend to reconcile, which they do. As it turns out, Ape doesn’t want to do anything evil at all. He’d rather go get some ice cream with Armadillo.
Although Armadillo’s evil plans may be a bit intense for sensitive readers–his ultimate plan is to blow up the world–the conflict resolution and conclusion with a more peaceful activity is a fulfilling story arc.
