We read two of the stories from this last night. For an adult, the idea of having to learn how to read comics is odd, but it seems the PandaBat needs the instruction. These are a little to moral-of-the-story for my taste, but they were just different enough from the originals to appeal to the child. Who was, by the way, delighted to discover how the different stories fit together.
On the other hand, she never loved it enough to want to go back to it.
