    Like any collection of short stories, I liked some more than others. Overall very cute and I think this would make a nice gift for someone who has watched the Avatar show but hasn't read any of the comics, since it's just little stories about favorite characters.(Also can we talk about how pretty Katara looks on the cover??)

    A bit underwhelming as I had read several of these before. One full star is for The Pebble.

    keep forgetting this storyverse is for kids...stories were great fun but graphics not to my liking. Maybe graphics due to the anthology/short-story style or just the use of vareity of old fashion comic styles, or overall fun style. Similar to how transformers uses 3-4 different styles across their storyverse.Also 2-3 of teh stories dont' seem to match how regular story line went (the KeiLo/Mai story & one of teh Toph or SOkka stories) which is weird cuz GLY wrote the first 5 stor keep forgetting this storyverse is for kids...stories were great fun but graphics not to my liking.

    See my status updates on my opinion on each individual story. Overall, a lot of cute and fun stories, but they all felt more like filler episodes than anything that truly enriched the lore of the series. There's something to be said when Gene Luen Yang had something to do with 2/3s of my favorite ones ("Shells" which he wrote and "Sokka's Poem" which he illustrated), right?

    Short, sweet, and to the point. Collecting some random Avatar Free Comic Book Day stories and some shorter vignettes, this collection's been delayed out the rear end, but it's hardly essential. It's nice to check back in on some of your favourite characters; I'd say these mostly skew younger than the usual Avatar fare except perhaps the Mei story that opens the book, but I'm sure any Avatar fan will at least crack a smile reading this.

    I enjoyed 'Shells', 'Sokka's Poem', and 'Origami' the most. The art in Sokka's Poem was probably my favourite, followed by Origami. The other stories were okay - I did enjoy the glimpse into Ty Lee's background we get in 'Sisters' - but they weren't amazing. It was a solid little anthology, but I think I prefer watching Avatar rather than reading it.

    This made me so giggly. What a cute anthology! I was happy to see Mai, Ty Lee, and The Boulder have special features, but I wish Zuko and Aang had dedicated stories. (Sokka had so many! And that's not a disservice to Sokka. His stories are very good.) I just feel like this could have been balanced more evenly across the characters?

    These stories were adorable. Simple and funny. They seemed realistic and accurate to the characters and I could hear their voices in my head while reading. I loved the modern take. Nothing too fancy here, just some short stories. Loved all the artwork too! Great selection and collection of artists.

    Not enough Azula but I still enjoyed reading it lol. The stories were all really cute. I especially loved the story about The Bolder and the one where they were in the pumpkin patch. The latter reminded me of Charlie Brown. It was a nice spoopy thing for an October day.

    Cute little collection of a few Avatar stories taking place both during and after the original series. Drawing style varies but I somewhat liked that. Tales weren't obviously very deep, but it was sorta wholesome. And you meet Racoon-Crows. I just like the hybrid animals. :)4 Stars

    Short, but very cute! I loved that every story had a different author and artist.

    Cute little stories, I just wish at least one of them had my favorite character, Zuko, in the plot. Only mentions of him.
