really liked it
bookshelves: juv, graphic-novel, fantasy, adventure, orca-2010-2011
Read 2 times. Last read September 19, 2010 to March 25, 2014.

It had been too long since I read a graphic novel, and this one is on this year's ORCA list - another list that I'd like to hopefully maybe work my way through before voting in the spring (even though I'm not a "young reader" and therefore not eligible to vote, the list is a great resource for recommending books to kids and to suggest to my bookgroup, since we have multiple copies on hand already).

It's fast-paced and fantastical, with rich full-color pictures. It's a story that could have been told as a regular novel, but the graphic format lets you soak in all the strange creatures and landscapes without slowing things down. It's the beginning of a series, and some issues are left hanging while others are resolved - a good compromise.

Reread for bookgroup 2011 and 2014.
