We are great admirers of Diramix productions, but on this occasion we have to start with a sore point, the quality of the album paper. As already happened with other publishers we are faced with wavy pages, you can already see them also from these photos. Let’s hope it’s just a mistake in the way, really a shame to lose so much in quality to save a few euros in printing.
Alvin is living a second (or third) youth, thanks to the production of new cartoons, after the great success of the 80s. Honestly, the graphics were much better then, now it’s all computer but the stories are always nice and funny. No comment on the theme song, give us the old one!
In the first pages of the album we find the presentation of the characters of the series who are not only the three lively rock brothers but also, for example, the female counterpart, the Chipettes, also present in the following pages. Later off to mini stories and curiosities.
Already used for Bing and other albums, always nice the triple central poster for the stick & stack stickers.
A particular work has been done on the stickers, not only glitter and shaped but also the edges do not have a standard color, ranging from red to yellow and white. The small format is not suitable for some images but in general they look good on the album which is not just didactic, page by page we find small games for children, often to make them you still need to have the stickers attached (rightly!).
Finally, applause for the cost of the packet, still at € 0.70 unlike many other publishers.
