Edmund lives a normal life, but he is far from normal.
In fact, he isn't human - he is Fae, his parents, a King and Queen, stole a human child and left Edmund in the World Above. When that human boy appears on Edmund's street with news of betrayal and war, Edmund knows his life has changed forever, but he has to go down back to the World Below. He has to face Hawthorne, evil sorceress, and claim his place on the throne.
Fantastic art and strong story-telling make this an incredible graphic novel, sure to grab everyone who opens it. A stand-alone with hints at a sequel - hopefully! ~ Reviewed by Leah Moore

This graphic novel revolves around an unusual group of cutely drawn friends who get into all kinds of shenanigans together. Pranks, mischief, and sarcasm rule these short nonconsecutive comics. I think any sassy person age 8 & above would love this odd but charming book. ~ Reviewed by Laura Knapp

This new graphic novel mixes the issues of school, friendship, family and trying to fit in when all you do is stick out for one reason or another. Ages 10 up. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Fans of Smile and Roller Girl will love this graphic novel - great story and great art! Penelope is the new girl at school and right away things start off rocky...she pushes a boy over in the hall, when he was just trying to help her! She keeps trying to say sorry, but it's just too awkward - will she have to spend the rest of the school year hiding like a ninja whenever she sees him?! And now the Art Club, the only place she has friends, is in danger. The principle says they need to "contribute to school community" if they want to have a club next year! Can they save Art Club? Maybe with the help of their enemies, the Science Club, and that boy... if they can face the awkwardness of asking! ~ Reviewed by Leah Moore
