Additional Information

Jim Curious portrays the fantastical story of a young boy and his thrilling trip to the bottom of the sea in an old-fashioned diving suit. But there are no words telling his tale—only intricately illustrated images in exceptional 3-D. On his journey, Jim initially passes the garbage tossed into the waters by land-dwellers, but soon he goes deeper and deeper, immersing himself in the wonders of the waters. He encounters sea creatures large and small, a sunken pirate ship, and even the rem­nant of what seems to be Atlantis, before coming upon a mysterious force at the bottom that turns everything on its head.

Praise for Jim Curious
"Who needs 3D IMAX technology? Originally published in France, this near-wordless picture book ensures an incredible journey without ever leaving the sofa."
--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"In this wordless picture book–esque graphic novel, Picard gets to the heart of visual storytelling with a beautifully illustrated 3-D deep sea adventure."
--School Library Journal, starred review

"Here’s a masterful triple threat—wordless book, comics-style book, 3-D book—that successfully parries all charges of gimmickry."
--The Bulletin of The Center for Children’s Books, starred review

"The lush, expressive black-and-white, full-page illustrations in this wordless graphic novel would be thrilling enough on their own, but French graphic designer Picard has rendered them in glorious, artful 3-D. When Jim slips beneath the surface of the water, the pictures pop off the page, giving a lovely sense of depth to his deep sea dive."

"A thoroughly immersive outing."
--Kirkus Reviews

I thought this was awesome and it brought back a lot of nostalgia for the old red and white 3d glasses. But my kids weren't as impressed since 3D has come a long way since then. Only problem is it came with only 2 pairs of glasses which caused a lot of fights since I was reading to 3 kids (not to mention I would have liked to wear a pair myself) And one such fight led to a pair getting bent up (they are only made out of paper after all). Definitely better to read it one-on-one unless you have some similar pair of 3d glasses lying around the house.
This amazing book provided lots of entertainment for the kids and adults in my family! It's got a great retro feel, since you need to view the story through the red-and-blue 3D glasses included in the book. The story has no words, but it's easy for kids to follow what's going on. There's great detail and humourous aspects to each illustration. This book got repeat reads in my house! Just a note: we found it easier to experience the 3D effect if we held the book more in an upright position than flat on the lap.
Bought this book for my boyfriend's daughter. She loved it more than I could have hoped. The 3D works better than expected, and it was fun to be able to walk her through the complex images and ask her to tell a story about them. It was great for creative thinking and a nice way to get to talk over new concepts.
