A re-imaging of the classic Breton folktale, The Daughters of Ys is a gloriously beautiful tale of love, loss, and rebirth. The stunning illustrations help to portray a powerful and deep message; it is a graphic novel that many people will enjoy. I highly recommend it. ~ Reviewed by Cassidy Washburn

Published: Scribner - October 6th, 2020

This is less of a coming out story and more of a "coming into yourself" story. Crewes narrates their story in simple, but detailed illustrations and text. The reader is taken on their own journey of learning who we are really meant to be while Crewes takes their own. There is a charm and story that will be relatable to almost everyone who has wondered about “the times they knew” about themselves. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

“What do we do when our hearts hurt? We wrap them in friendship, shared tears and time, till they wake hopeful and happy again.”
A small, gorgeous treasure of an art book, scattered with meaningful messages of love, friendship, and a reminder to be kind to one another. ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty

I was blown away by this gorgeous gripping graphic novel adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Newbery and Carnegie-winning The Graveyard Book, which I’d somehow never read. With each chapter drawn by a different artist, this single volume edition adapted by Harvey and Eisner winning P. Craig Russell works as a unified whole with an aesthetic reminiscent of vintage Sandman. ~ Reviewed by Dafydd Wood
