An absolute treasure of a book. The creative forces behind Atelier Sento are mighty.
Beautiful to look at, and so fun to read. It’s a tale of discovery, wonderment, and just a little ghost hunting, very evocative of place. I loved it! ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty

Hey Kiddo, I have a graphic novel for you. It is a powerful memoir by author and illustrator Jarrett Krosoczka. Learn how the author/illustrator of the Lunch Lady series came out of a very rough and non-traditional family. For ages 13 to adult. While younger readers could read, the subject matter of the mother’s drug use, family absences, language and the fact the grandparents are very realistic (sometimes too realistic and one wonders how Krosoczka did not come out of his childhood with more emotional scars) can be too much. The sensitive readers also might have difficulty with the content. Yet, it is all handled respectfully, realistically and not sugar coated, but not graphically. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
