One of the best graphic novels I've read recently. The art is beautiful, the story is magical, and the characters are engaging; what more could you want? Fans of Miyazaki movies and those who like their coming-of-age friendship stories with a dose of the supernatural will especially like this. Plus, who doesn't like a bear in a natty suit?
A mix of Star Wars, Harry Potter, and Korean Mythology, this middle-grade novel follows a shape-shifter as she hunts for the truth behind her brother's disappearance. With ghosts, intergalactic pirates, battles, mythical creatures, and an unfolding mystery, this book should appeal to a range of sci-fi and fantasy readers.
