What’s Up, Beanie features short comics with engaging colors that help adult Beanie, who is visited by young Beanie, relive moments in the author’s life.
I would recommend this text to young adults and adults who enjoy graphic novels, comedy, webtoons, works by @whatsupbeanie, and texts with a female protagonist. The text lives up to its title because I laughed several times, the drawings were cute, and there were several comics that I related to such as Volume, Books, Telephone Persona, and Favourite Song. While reading, although I think this text is for older audiences, the language was easy enough that younger audiences would be able to understand it as well.
