A delightful book about conservation and elephants. Our hero elephant Star, his mother, and Auntie must leave their home when food becomes scarce due to deforestation. Traveling to find food, they keep running into humans, until the day they cannot run anymore. But maybe this time it is not a bad thing. Goofy, cartoon illustrations, add to the adventures. Based on three bull elephant’s true story of 1990. The afterwards has more information and ways you can help animals like Star. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Not only are there territorial kolas, lack of food, and water, soon after his journey begins, the forest is engulfed in a forest fire. This story is based on the lives of koalas and loosely based on the facts surrounding the 2019-2020 wildfires. The illustrations are cartoon and goofy. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

I really enjoyed this spooky gothic fantasy adventure. Vespertine is the first in a new series about a young woman on the run from the Church because of her troubled alliance with a dark spirit that inhabits her mind. A real page turner dripping with atmosphere. An especially great read for folks who are into the The Witcher or the game Bloodborne. ~ Reviewed by Reilly Hadden

Published: Papercutz - February 1st, 2022

A little on the spooky side, this graphic novel is a must-read realistic-fantasy adventure. Esteban and Tristan can enter the nightmare of fellow teenagers. The two find what is frightening the dreamer and help them face their fears. However, that is just the surface. There are secrets, people that want to stop the facility that offers this “service” and there is school and the horrors one faces there. The artwork is something that must be experienced as it is both quaint, not very colorful, crowded, but rightly detailed. The adventures come alive on the pages because of their complimenting the text. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
