Reviews

Ghoulishly entertaining. The ending suggests that Pablo and Jane's misadventures are just beginning?unlucky for them, but lucky for readers.
--Publisher's Weekly, STARRED REVIEW

Filled with alliteration and challenging vocabulary, the story blends adventure, a familiar Where's Waldo concept, myth, and expedition for a new, clever search-and-find. Original art and visually engrossing worlds will have readers visiting this book over and over again.
--Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW

With the frantic and enthralling pace of an animated cartoon, this graphic novel bends genres to create an exciting new format. [...] The art is engrossing, with an abundance of detail and humor matched by its clever text, and the colors are elegant and bright. [...] This work will engage readers on all levels with its thrilling adventure and interactive aspects.
--School Library Journal

Kids who love seek-and-find books will dig this offbeat offering.
--Booklist

With Pablo & Jane and the Hot Air Contraption, José Domingo takes the search-and-find concept, juices it up with his considerable artistic chops, and amalgamates it with a fun, high-octane story. [...] Domingo's created a delightful, lively book, one that's appealing, engaging and fun, and successful in all that it sets out to achieve.
