I love graphic novels.. I saw this one on Netgalley and the cover was really intriguing. The I was in the comic book store the other day and I saw this book on the shelf and I really wanted to read it. I love how it is package, in a diary format almost. The book has a little clasp on it and everything. Here is the goodreads description:
I think this book is great. I loved the mix of fantasy and horror. Plus the artwork helped make this book extra spooky (illustrator is Megan Hutchinson). I loved the color scheme in the book too.... blues, greens and browns. Looks like maybe this will be a series? "An Aurora Grimeon Story” is written on the top of the cover so I can only hope there are more books. The plot basically follows this girl Aurora whose parents die from eating bad mushrooms, so she has to move to swamp and live with her grandfather. She meets a lot of neat characters and encounters a blue orb that floats around the island.
Will O' the Wisp has a great cast... including Aurora's sidekick a raccoon named Missy. Missy is hilarious and cute to me at the same time. Aurora herself I think is a great female character too. There is even a little spark of romance in the book. This video tells about the making of the book and gives us an even better glimpse into the artwork.
I loved this book... it is a little scary so even though the art is whimsical and fun I wouldn't say it's for kids. I love that I was able to sit down for like an hour and read it and just enjoy myself! I received this book from netgalley for free for an honest review.
The crystal ball says:
Sun is shinning!!! Great day to go outside and read this book.
