Eleven-year-old Maddy loved working in her parents' bookstore... especially when joined by her pet flying toad Ralph. But that was before the mysterious Thimblewitch turned her mom & dad into kangaroo rats!
Now Maddy's on the adventure of a lifetime. To save her parents, she'll need to sneak past an army of spider-goblins, scarecrow warriors, and much more... Fortunately, an assortment of new friends await, including the cloud cartographers Harry and Silvio, a bear and raccoon who explore the world in their moon-balloon. They'll help her along the way, but in the end, the fate of everyone will depend on Maddy's courage, compassion, and creativity.
Full of surprises and stunning artwork, Maddy Kettle is a truly magical debut for Spectrum-Award-winning cartoonist Eric Orchard. Climb aboard and let your imagination soar.
I received an eARC of this Graphic Novel from Diamond Book Distributors via NetGalley in exchange for an honest Review.
This Graphic Novel is going to take you on a journey of awesomeness with its fascinating fictional characters and creative settings.
The illustrations are beyond beautiful and this was really useful in graphic novels because sometimes looking at the picture alone gives lots of extra information that wasn't told .
The plot grabs the readers attention and takes him/her on an exquisite journey filled with magic and friendship.
There were few moments were I got a feeling that something was missing in form of text. But it could only be nothing. It might just be that the character was so Naive during that scene.
I really enjoyed the first book from the Maddy Kettle series , and i would absolutely read the next installations. This is a brilliant read for children. I highly recommend it.
I gave this book 4/5 stars and a B+ according to my own rating scale.
