FRIENDSHIP TO THE MAX!
At Miss Qiunzilla Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet’s camp for hard-core lady-types, things are not what they seem. Three-eyed foxes. Secret caves. Anagrams. Luckily, Jo, April, Mal, Molly, and Ripley are five rad, butt-kicking best pals determined to have an awesome summer together…
And they’re not gonna let a magical quest or an array of supernatural critters get in their way! The mystery keeps getting bigger, and it all begins here.
How did I get the book? I bought it.
Genre: Graphic Novels
Review: Lumberjanes were there to pick me back up after weeks of post-op blues and not being able to concentrate on reading. Diving head first into the camp hard-core lady-types and the unusual neighbours (sea monster, supernatural woodland creatures, bear-woman, etc.) was just the right kind of bizarre medicine I needed.
You have to embrace Lumberjanes for everything, from the camp motto & badges to dinosaurs appearing in the outhouse.
While I adore the colourfulness of each volume and the characters not every story hit the mark for me. I should have loved the merfolk (hello I’m a mermaid in the making) but I didn’t really engage on that one, and the artwork varies a bit as well.
Where Lumberjanes can’t be faulted is what they stand for. I’m hugely excited that this graphic novel is out there and would urge you to give it a try because it’s so much fun. There is a little bit of Jo, April, Mal, Molly, and Ripley in all of us.
