Hello Kitty delights people of all ages, sexes, and ethnicities. She has single-handled dominated the world with her cuteness, making her one of the top recognizable characters in the world. While Hello Kitty conquers hearts with her products, it’s a good time to remember that she actually stars in TV shows, books, and, of course, manga. Work of Art is a short book that revolves around stories involving the fine arts. It’s written and drawn by several artists who were allowed to explore Kitty’s world and experiment with the main idea.
The stories are all told without words as they show Kitty’s adventures when one of her drawings comes to life, when she is magically transported into various paintings in a museum, tries her paw at pottery, and even helps a dragon baby return to his parents. All of the stories are sweet and simple, guaranteed to bring a smile to anyone’s face.
Each artist draws Kitty and her friends in their own style, allowing the characters to breathe in brand new ways. It’s fun seeing the Hello Kitty world portrayed differently from their usual manner and it increases the cuteness levels to all time highs.
Hello Kitty: Work of Art is a quick, sweet read that makes you feel all warm in fuzzy on the inside.
