Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Vol. 2: Deserted Island Diary (2)

We rated this book:


Animal Crossing: New Horizons Deserted Island Diary is an adorable childrens’ graphic novel by Kokonasu Rumba. It is book two in the series which was created using characters from the popular video game Animal Crossing. Coroyuki is the leader of the gang in this book and the characters go on all sorts of adventures and assignments much like in the video game. The artwork is adorable and happy. Elementary school-aged children will absolutely love this book. From going fishing to upgrading an island to building a turnip business that makes a gazillion dollars, this book has a fun plot that moves along from island to island. I remember my son playing Animal Crossing as a young child and one of the characters in this book, Tom Nook, a raccoon, I remember in particular. In the game, the characters would make funny little sounds when they were talking and for those readers who know the game, even when reading the dialogue in this book, it would be easy to hear those funny little sounds at the same time. Animal Crossing is a nostalgic game for adults in their twenties and books like this bring the game back to life for young children.
