    • This is another wordless bookI didn't get this book out but it did have my interest by the cover and it was in the 'graphic novel' section of the school libIt's basically about a boy who gets bullied and there seems to be other books in the series that I haven't seenSo, I have no idea if this is a conclusion to the overall story or each book is different. In one part of the book the boy ends up visiting a museum and interacting with a painting which then opens a whole new world for himThings cha [...]


    • The Hero of Little Street by Gregory Rogers, published 2012.Magic realism.Picture book.Grades K-3.Found via Horn Book Magazine, reviewed by Kathleen T.

    • I tried to not run around screaming "Not another wordless book agrghhhh" At first I open it and see a ton of pictures in sequence that I have to follow to tell the story. Usually I really hate that, and though I didn't love interpreting the story, it was fun! SUPER FUN!! What made it a 4 star for me an not a 3 (which is where I might normally put it) was the Jan Vemeer reference (Girl with the Pearl Earring painter). 17th Century Dutch Painter. The kid goes into a painting at the museum into Vem [...]




    • *Personal Preference to books with text*3.5/ 5 starsI enjoyed this book. It was a lot like reading a comic. The story was also really unique and fun.



    • Since I was unfamiliar with the author/illustrator's other books, this one was quite a surprise for me. Trying to avoid some bullies on the streets of London, a boy slips into a long line of folks trying to enter a museum. After exploring the works of art and other treasures, a brown dog in a painting by a Dutch master slips out of the painting, leaving behind his master and mistress. The boy and dog race through the museum and climb into another painting where they meet a pianist. She ties a bo [...]


    • Fantastic wordless novel in comic panel-style. Akin to Harold and the Purple Crayon or Katie Meets the Impressionists. I love the adventures of this little boy and the artwork is fun to peruse again and again. This is a sequel, but definitely stands alone. I haven't read any other books in this series yet)


    • The "hero" in the title of this wordless, graphic-novel styled picture book is a energetic London boy who creates mischief wherever he goes. After kicking someone's soccer ball into a fountain, he runs into a museum to get away, and ends up following a dog that jumped out of one old Dutch painting into another one. The musician portrayed in that painting gives him a flute and the dog a ribbon, and waves goodbye as the boy and dog leave to explore this long-gone world. When they find themselves i [...]


    • This is the third book in the Boy Bear series. It is written in picture book format, however, it is more of a wordless comic book, as the story is revealed in frames like a comic strip. A little boy is chased by a group of older kids, so he hides in a line which takes him into a museum. In the museum, he walks along until he spies a friendly looking dog in one of the pictures. The dog jumps out of the picture and plays with the boy, running through the museum until they find a piece of paper. Af [...]


    • Completely delightful. I've enjoyed this book several times since borrowing it and will order my own copy, because it ticks so many boxes for me: we see a bit if Europe, a bit of art and a bit of history, plus there's a tight friendship between a boy and a dog. The story begins with a bullying situation but it ends up with friends sticking together not quite in the way you might think. With no words and beautiful pictures that communicate clearly and render the setting with detail, there is much [...]


    • 2013 USBBY Outstanding International Book (Rogers is Australian)Especially for lovers of Vermeer and Dutch painting.A little boy is chased by a group of boys after he kicks their soccer ball into a fountain. To escape them, he joins a line waiting to enter London's National Gallery. His reaction to the modern paintings is fun -- imating statues, twisting his head to try to figure it out. Imagination takes over as the little dog in the Arnolfini wedding portrait leaps out to join the boy. Togethe [...]


    • “The Hero of Little Street” takes us on a brief trip through the National Museum of London with the feature being the world and art of painter Jan Vermeer. The concept of travelling through art is interesting, but the delivery is uninspiring. As a wordless book the illustrations need to tell the story and keep the interest of the reader. The comic strip style does a good job of telling the story, but the art itself, while nice, is a little too subdued to keep my interest over multiple readin [...]


    • This is a wordless picture book about a lovely boy. This book tells about a funny story a boy slips into a grand old gallery and found a dog go out from a picture. then, they begin a amazing trip in the picture. The boy help lots of dog escape and become a hero in the picture world. Although there is no word from beginning to end, the plots are easy to understand through the illustrations. Without text to contend with, you can still teach reading and writing skills/strategies to the whole class [...]


    • Wow. If ever there were a wordless picture book. This one was full of adventure and occasionally I missed a few details in some pictures that made me "drop" the storyline and have to go back to pick it up again. But what a way to keep a child busy in a read-alone. Do a lap-read to help out a younger one if need be, but I think preschool and up would be fine on their own (as long as the preschool has the patience to sit there and look through all the details). I think children would enjoy the ide [...]


    • This wordless picture book is a beginning graphic novel if every I saw one. The star of this is a little boy who just can't help getting in to trouble. From kicking a soccer ball that falls in front of him to jumping in to a painting in a museum, his adventures are exciting and funny.The illustrations are very graphic-novel-ly, to boot. Full of things to look at, and crammed with panels, this book would probably be confusing for very young readers. Elementary schoolers, though, will probably rea [...]


    • This wordless, panel-style picture book tells a fun story about a boy who, escaping from bullies into a museum, encounters a dog from one of the paintings and accompanies him on an adventure inside another painting. Surprisingly complex and taking a scary turn midway through, this book is for older children (K-2, perhaps). The illustrations are detailed enough that kids will want to pore over them to take in every aspect of the story's world.


    • You could spend hours looking at this wordless children's picture book and find new things in the pictures each time. I love these types of books and think they are so fun to read with kids because you can make up your own story and change it each time. Very fun. I think I remember reading the other books by this author but it's been awhile so I'm going to look them up and re-read them since I had so much fun with this one.


    • A great book and story I bought for my grandson. The story is told in cartoon style. When I explained how to "read" the book, my three-year grandson made sure to tell me he already knew how to read this kind of book since his dad read comic books to him. I guess any kind of reading material is acceptable if it makes reading enjoyable! Anyway, the story is well-done and keeps even me interested. Put this one on your "to read" list for children.


    • I love how rich this narrative is--there are several "acts" and a lot to follow. It made me think of Mercer Mayer's Octopus Soup in that regard. I did lose track of what was going on a couple times and had to go back and re-read a page or two. (But I just had my 14yo read it and she didn't have any trouble at all. Of course.)


    • A picture book for older kids who enjoy the swift movement of cartoons, and humor that is visual. A little boy escapes into a picture at an art musuem and enjoys an adventure romping with a lively dog across Vermeer's Delft, the Netherlands, Satisfying and a nice way to introduce art in a wholly accessible way.


    • A little boy flees to the safety of a big art museum when being pursued by bullies. In the museum he begins to interact with different pieces of art and becomes a pied piper of sorts for dogs within the artwork. When he leaves the art and the museum, he encounters the bullies again, only this time he calls a bunch of dogs to his assistance.Lovely illustrations.


    • Another terrific wordless picture book graphic novel from Rogers. I liked the imaginative story line of this one. It was both fun and clever. Plus, it really captured the spirit of art. You're SUPPOSED to lose yourself in art. Like our hero, I found it easy to tumble into this book and have fun.


    • Being chased by bullies, the boy runs into an art museum for sanctuary. While there, a dog from a painting emerges and helps the boy enter the art world literally (they walk into another painting). A wordless picture book with the feel of a graphic novel.


    • A cute first graphic novel complete with some time travel and action. I could also see this book being used to stimulate kid's "story telling" skills by making up the story based on the illustrations.


    • I wish the drawing style was different for the world inside the paintings. Since it all drawn in the same loose cartoony style, it's hard to realized that the boys inside the painting, or that the boy's not from a painting, too. At least these were questions that my 7 year old had.


    • I didn't realise until I started reading this that it's the third in a series. No matter, now I can have fun going back to read the first two books. This was an utterly charming and captivating wordless picture book of art, adventure and Dutch courage. Tintin for small children. :)


    • There is lots to see in this wordless picture book set out in panels like a comic book. The little boy protagonist not only runs around the real streets, he also goes inside a painting to have adventures with a little dog.
