Take a walk on the wild side with the first full comic for the popular Nickelodeon animated series. I have watched a few episodes and it can be a fun romp for a moment. But the show's target audience is clearly children and families. I downloaded this from the read now section of Netgalley where you can read a book from that list straight without waiting for approval. The comic was a fun read and while I thought it would at least be okay. I truly think it better shows the dynamics of the sisters the best. On the show they can sometimes just come off as obnoxious and annoying ending with you empathizing with Lincoln. But in the comic they are shown as so much more and even a few short ones just showcasing the sisters are among the most fun. Shocker, Luna's New Threads and Very Superstitious are among my faves. When it comes to Lincoln centered there is the longest strip of them all which is a choose your story one. Finding that remote by going to various pages to talk to different sisters and even pets was a barrage of fun I think older fans will enjoy the most. Also The Call and The Handshake were pretty good with Lincoln. For the strip most faithful to the show I would go with No Spoilers which felt ripped straight out of an episode of the show.
On a whole I had a nice time with this strip. Highly recommend for kids and fans of the show....more

Then when I read the novel I was taken on a ride like no other. Winter and her siblings discover something special about themselves and then go off on an adventure/rescue mission that takes them from an underground paradise and an above ground nightmare at a seemingly normal Fair. Nothing is left to boredom or lack of depth as Ulyate takes the battle to protect the environment to a whole new level with Green Peace vs. Pollution and all the people in between. This book is innovative and captivating and I recommend it for both kids and adults alike because it transcends perfectly.
Sadly I do have one real issue. There was some stereotyping and predictable parts in the book. While it didn't ruin the whole book, there were parts that were broken down because it was so predictable. Like a girl having winter powers liking a boy with fire powers, the bookish boy knowing so much or getting something wrong in an obvious attempt to 'bring him down to size' or the athletic one getting hurt often in a seemingly price for her smugness about being fit and pretty. Still though I highly recommend this book and go as far to say it would make an amazing movie....more

As a bibliophile I really got into the character of Lizzie a book lover like myself. Robert the youngest will appeal to readers who know what it's like to be the young one in the family and having to sometimes force people to listen to you. Jack the eldest shows how older children can take on responsibilities beyond even their capabilities sometimes because they feel it's their duty and end up being overprotective. K.C. Hilton created a magical story in a town when everything goes perfectly until human error or greed gets in the way. Proving no matter how perfect something seems, nothing is perfect. A great lesson for children as well as the fact that anything can be worked out with love and co-operation. This book is for ages 8-11 and will capture the interest of any child who loves reading fantasy or a really good book. And even a couple adults....more
