I was truly surprised how much I liked this graphic novel. I'm typically not drawn to middle-grade, with certain exceptions. I volunteer in my son's elementary school library from time to time, and this series is constantly being borrowed by the kids, and they are always telling me how good the series is. It was enthralling, emotional, and beautifully done. I love how you are dumped right into the story- you hit the ground running. There's hardly any exposition, and it's completely a "fish-out-of-water" fantasy story. The protagonists are little young, but I suppose that's meant to draw younger readers in. The story flows nicely, the panels are easy to follow and the characters are endearing. I was so engaged, and before I knew it, the story was over. I'm eager to dive right into the next one!
