Positive- A graphic novel intended for girls!!!!!!!!!!! I was so excited to find this book because most of the graphic novels I see are aimed at boys or are unisex, however this book has a girl main character and is definitely written more for girls. This would be a great addition to my library because none of my girls are interested in graphic novels but this one might change their mind!

Audience and Applications- This book is probably made for 4th or 5th graders. There is a lot of suspense and
Fine for what it is - a graphic novel reader for reluctant girl readers in grades 3-6 who are below grade level... Kind of powder puff girl-ish in this origination story telling how Halo Nightly inherited candy that tranforms her into a superhero from an aunt. I think there are girls in the target who will enjoy this series.
When Halo receives a birthday present from her Aunt Pandora on her 11th birthday, her life is forever changed. She is given a jar of different colored candies. Soon, she discovers this is no regular candy. Each ones gives her a different power dealing with nature. Finding herself facing off with Doozie, she must use her new candy powers to fight Doozie's superpowered hair!

I love the start to this series - with a play off of the name Pandora from mythology and a box of goodies. The idea of candie
A fun intro to a new graphic novel series with a pink-haired girl who becomes a super hero when she eats magical candy that her mysterious Aunt Pandora gave her. The candy is labeled in Spanish words and helps her solve a mystery at school. The pictures are bright cartoons that students love. I am looking forward to the rest of the series.
Flashy and fun, but pretty empty. Adequate, but I think it could have been done much better--both simpler and more substantial.
