  • Brilliant kids book.

    Basically: This book is a fantasy graphic novel that follows a family who move to an old family home after a relatively recent tragedy and find that everything is not what it seems. In detail: I saw a couple of people reading this on my tumblr dash and on youtube who I have the greatest respect for in terms of many of their books that they recommend I enjoy. So I thought I'd see if my local library had any of this series in, and it did. And I totally enjoyed and loved this book, it was beautiful and fun and amazing and just what I fancied reading one afternoon after a short day at work. The Plot: This graphic novel has a fantastic and well-paced story line that was totally enjoyable if a little predictable. I loved the way the fantasy was woven in, it's not a theme I've seen that often in urban fantasy and I really enjoyed it. I liked the whole house element as well, the house as a theme is really well done and makes you want to explore your own home all over again (I'm thinking the next time I move I could be enforcing a sleepover with my poor much maltreated own family) and just double check everything is where it should be. The story itself is a tad predictable but it is so beautifully told and so sweet and cute that you don't mind, and there is enough different to make it stand out and make it just the greatest. Gosh, the way it unfolds is great and I love it. All the themes running through it of family, loyalty, betrayal, and all that are great and handled so well. The Characters: The main character in this book is the adorable Emily who is a young girl who is going through a difficult time all of which is totally explained right at the beginning of the book, and she really likes wearing hoodies (she's identifiable in that she seems kind of normalish for a fantasy novel) and she loves her family. After moving to her Great-Uncles home and having a major cleaning session, and some great family bonding moments, Emily finds a necklace of some kind that helps her discover a few things about her family's history and gives her the power to protect her family hey she loves them okay. And the rather cool fantasy element is then introduced. Emily's little brother Navin is a total cutie too, and such a sweetheart in this story. One of my favourite parts of this book was the relationship between Emily and Navin, I love books with beautifully written family relationships that are not just assumed or brushed aside. I also loved how real Navin felt, his personality just jumped at me and he really reminded me of my own little brother. Also Emily and Navin's Mum who was totally great, I loved her and how much she loved her children (and also their Dad was pretty cool you know and stuff). Yeah, great parenting love in this book. I loved it. A lot. And the others. If you've read this then you know who I mean, like literally the greatest characters and great development and I totally want volume two like yesterday (but I don't think my library has them). My Thoughts: This book, graphic novel, is fantastic and one of the best things I have read in years and is not diminished at all by the fact that it is aimed at a younger audience. Their is a certain childishness to it but the way it's told makes it relatable to everyone, at any age. The images are beautiful and take show not tell as the most brilliant advice. The whole thing is amazing and yes, definitely read it!
