Mostly wordless, the Saga of Rex brings you on the journey of a cute fox as he gets dragged to other worlds, meets alien species, and even finds love. The beautifully chosen colour themes add a magical quality to a magical tale. Along the way several transformations occur, worlds change, creatures change, Rex becomes more courageous and stronger. This connects to the overarching theme itself, that life is ever changing. For most of the story Rex is dragged around by events, but in the final third of the book, Rex learns that he is destined to save the planet he is on, and with the help of his new alien friends, he is given the power to do this. The illustrations at this point flare out in bright reds, yellows, and oranges as he destroys an oncoming world that would've collided into this planet. Having proven himself a worthy species, the morphogenic creature takes him to the final stage where they are sent on their way to seed life on an ideal world for them. The Saga of Rex is very quick to get through, and it is only due to an accurate use of the panelling, that the story is made possible.
