    As Christian Slade's book is entirely without words (save for the introductory page), it's a pretty quick read. But it's the kind that fills you with bubbles of joy. It may actually be the cutest thing I've ever read. Korgi, vol. 1 follows a single misadventure of Ivy and her little friend Sprout (one of the titular Korgis, a race of "fox-like" creatures). The characters have a sense of life and joy about them but the real pleasure is the Korgis themselves.

The characters have a sense of life and joy about them but the real pleasure is the Korgis themselves. The two-page spread featuring the hustle and bustle of Korgi Hollow (the central village of the story) is an absolute wonder as we see Korgis (which really just look like Welsh Corgis) of all shapes and sizes engaged in numerous tasks around town. I think my favourite was the one large enough to act as another character's noble steed. In reality, Korgi is just a pile of cute overload and while there is some story going on, we may have to wait for future volumes to note any real sense of development.

    I picked this up because, I confess, I own a corgi myself, and I thought my wife would think it was cute. Then I read it - silent, epic, beautiful - as good an all ages read as I've encountered since Bone. Before I even left the store, I had to have all three volumes. I'd recommend it to anyone with a soft spot for the kind of stories that enchanted them when they were a child, presented in such a way as to satisfy even the most mature reader. Also, hope the monster gets his eyeball back eventual I picked this up because, I confess, I own a corgi myself, and I thought my wife would think it was cute.

    A simple, well duh.. (it's for children) fantasy story about a girl and her dog.

    The art is super cute in this graphic novel but there could have been more to the story. There just wasn't much of a plot (which had nothing to do with it being wordless). I thought I would have enjoyed it a lot more based on the description and cover. But super cute pups so yay! The art is super cute in this graphic novel but there could have been more to the story.

    Oh no! This is just too cute!! The style is very classic, reminding me of old fashioned children's book illustrations with its skilled draughtsmanship and lively line. We are introduced to delightful woodland village where Mollies - pixie-like creatures - and their Korgis lead an idyllic life amongst various magical denizens. It isn't all frolics in the meadows and Ivy and her Korgi, Sprout, face some very scary perils before winning through. Absolutely charming and not just cutesy. But it is su Oh no!

    I can't believe that someone thought to create this, but I'm so happy it exists. Korgi is so whimsical and cute. The art style is really unique in this somehow sparse yet intricate way. And the story is told entirely through the drawings! (I'm clearly on some weird kick of graphic novels based on dogs) I can't believe that someone thought to create this, but I'm so happy it exists.

    This is a rather charming story told soley in pictures. While technically a children's book, it can be adored by anyone who loves dogs. It is a good blend of story and fantasy. I love Ivy and Sprout. Really good. This is a rather charming story told soley in pictures. While technically a children's book, it can be adored by anyone who loves dogs.

    A day in the life of a young girl and her korgi, in the forest village where they make their home. Wordless, with black and white art that reminds me of an Alice in Wonderland woodcut.

This is cute, but slight, and I didn't get much from it except for creeping suspicion that the korgis were being exploited by the villagers for their labor. Sorry. The world has ruined me.

REVIEW: The wordless format and the very lush and expressive pen and ink drawings make this new graphic novel series very accessible to all levels of readers, including limited English proficiency (LEP) readers. The volume felt a little over cute to me, but I can see how this woodland fantasy fills a niche and will appeal to most young readers (and certainly any corgi dog lovers). My favorite part was finding out that Ivy’s corgi, Sprout, is a fire-breather! Now that’s a handy dog trick... SLJ: Positive. "Finding a middle ground between the slapstick fantasy of Jeff Smith's beloved Bone series (Scholastic/Graphix) and Andy Runton's sweet and wordless Owly books (Top Shelf), Korgi will draw in fans of graphic fiction, fantasy, fairies, dogs, and good old storytelling." PW: Positive. "Slade's illustrations are so expressive and full of life that the pages radiate the feelings of his characters, and the lack of dialogue is hardly noticed. Korgi is as intricately illustrated, rich and fully imagined as an animated film."

    I'm definitely a dog person, but Corgis are a breed I've never particularly liked (might have something to do with my Girl Scout leader's bitey series of pups). So maybe I shouldn't have bothered.

The dogs live in trees (although the way their treehouses are drawn makes this seem only a magical possibility, given doggish physical limitations). And giants and ogres and other monsterish humanoids are around. meh, I think I'm too serious for this stuff. I need to know more of the inner workings of the world to be into it. And I don't have a corgi obsession to pull me through.

    Did you know Corgi's are magical? Me neither, but apparently they are and they live with a people called Mollies (which apparently are fairies)! It is entirely a picture book. No words, just pictures to tell the story. I loved it. My favorite part was when the little corgi shot fire from his little adorable mouth. I will say, though, they left those bad guys on fire.

    Like Owly, this is a wordless graphic novel. It isn't visually similar at all; the drawing here is richly detailed, rather than simplified and cartoonish. If you weren't already a fan of corgis, a glimpse through a magical village full of them will make you one. Like Owly, this is a wordless graphic novel.

    This comic presents a wordless fantasy story in which little dogs are magical creatures. The black-and-white art is done is a very nice sketchy style. However, there are some panels that seem more decorative than narrative in purpose. Also, the plot is a pretty standard fantasy plot. It might be a nice way to introduce children to fantasy, though.

    I don’t consider myself a dog person (or any other animal person), yet I always thought corgis were adorable and I am almost always beguiled by a fantasy story. As I took a moment to glance through Korgi before shelving it, I began to realize this story was a fun mixture of cute corgis and suspenseful magical adventure. It is wordless, so it does not take long to read and the plot is simple to follow. Neither of these elements makes it less enjoyable to read.

This book is sometimes described as a book for all ages – not sure about that. Young fans of graphic novels, magic, and dogs will certainly like it, but I would advise parents to glance through it before giving it to sensitive readers as there are some creatures that could scare them. Adults who won’t take it too seriously and still have the inner kid in them will also have fun reading Korgi. *Book 3 is darker than Book 1 and 2. There is a Book 4 that was published in 2016, but I have not had an opportunity to read it.

I really liked this idea, as it allowed me to enjoy the art without interruptions from narration. However, there were a lot of things I found confusing due to this as well-there was no explanation for Sprout's fire-breathing capabilities, nor the spaceships (why are there spaceships in a woodland area?). However, I think over the next few books in the series, these will be explained (hopefully). What I found interesting was the hint of darkness Slade puts in the book with the monsters, more than what I expected for a children's book. Overall, I really loved this book-it was cute, funny, and beautifully drawn, and I'm excited to read the following books.

    Stumbled across this book by accident and had to look into it. After all... who can pass up a cute Corgi... or I should say in this case a Korgi. There are no words in this book, except in the little introduction and the explanation of what the different creatures are in the back. It was a quick read, but also very action packed if you take in the pictures and really watch what is happening.

    I was very disappointed by this book. It looks fabulous, and the description on the cover sounded fun, but it didn't really live up to my expectations. It's mostly wordless (the introduction is told through words instead of pictures), and a couple of wordless books are things I number among my favorites, so that's not the reason I didn't like it. Just something about the flow of the story left me feeling let down. I'm sure this would be a good way to introduce a child to wordless books, but I don I was very disappointed by this book.

    I love pitching this series to others for the art and the wordless storytelling. Sometimes I get kids at work (the library) who aren’t confident in their reading skills but still want a story to enjoy. This series gives them an opportunity to develop reading comprehension and have fun in the process. I’m a huge fan of corgis, too!

    A gorgeously sketched, wordless graphic novel that will make you skip through the forest pretending to have wings, with a smiling canine trotting behind you on a quest for carpets of moss, acorn caps for fairy hats, and shelf moss to store trinkets on. Great for sparking the imaginations of early elementary children and the young at heart.

And seeing that there is no dialogue the pictures really help to progress the story well. I really love this book! I can't wait for more. This book drew me in in but a moment. The artwork is amazing.

    This book is a bit unusual even for a children's graphic novel in that the only text is the preface. The rest of the book is told entirely in drawings, making it a quick yet charming first volume. The illustrations are adorable and corgi lovers should definitely pick this one up.

    Really cute illustrations, but the pacing was pretty amateur. It's a kids book, so that's ok I guess. It's definitely a cute world design, but the lack of words makes it difficult to really add much depth. I don't think I'd pay $5 for the next issue.

    Cute wordless comic with a mini adventure in it and an ending that hints at a continued story. Not much of a story on its own, but the drawings are quite pretty and it could be a great story to read together and talk about what you think is happening.
