This book was included in the OwlCrate February 2019 Box, and it is absolutely gorgeous. We got a special edition cover that I love. I am not a huge fan of the white, but I think the picture encompasses the story much better.
The best part about this book is the artwork and the creatures. They are adorable and I want them all to be real so bad! Katie O’Neill is both the author and the artist, and her artwork is incredible ❤ I want to read her other Graphic Novels just so that I can see more of her art.
The story itself was cute but I felt it was underdeveloped and too short. I know its a graphic novel but it felt more like a Children’s picture book. I didn’t learn till after I read it, that Katie O’Neill writes “gentle fantasy stories for younger readers.” This explains a lot, but I feel the story still have had more depth and still be geared toward younger readers. For example, the fire cat thing that is a constant companion to the main character. This is the full introduction/explanation we get:
I need more information than that!!! I love this little cat thing and I want to know what it is!
Despite the shortness of the story, I would still recommend this book purely for the art. Its a easy fun read and I am so glad I own my own copy because I love it!
