The City on the Other aside

By Mairghread Scott and Robin Robinson

This is a graphic novel from First Second (thanks for the review copy!). It is a story about a girl named Isabel who goes to visit her dad in the country. There she meets some magical spirits called the Seelies and Unseelies who are at war. She is asked to deliver a necklace message to a Seelie General. With two new friends, she goes on an adventure to deliver the message and learns some cool lessons about herself.

This is a story about a girl who becomes a strong female but isn’t at the beginning. The illustrations are so great. This is a visual treat of a book. Instead of book candy, consider this illustration candy.

I think kids my age who like graphic novels will like this also adults.
