Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
I had an interesting experience with this graphic novel. Heading to my local library, I had picked up enough books to last me a hot minute, when on a whim, I added this to my stack. Upon checking out, they told me that it wasn't in the system, but just to take it anyway. Feeling like a rebel, I brought it home and it quickly got forgotten at the bottom of my to-read pile. Last week, I decided I should probably get on it. It's a very small book, and I figured if anything it allows me to mark it off of my 'to read' list.

Writing

The first thing I noticed, is that the writing is very similar to a fairy tale, or other short story based in a fantasy land. Her father is eccentric, and they live at Chilblain Hall. Her father is a great character, and leaves me chuckling. Glister struck me as a fun child, both interesting and capable of her adventures. She eventually learns she's acquired a teapot with a ghost inside. The end was not only a pleasant surprise, but a great twist on what is generally a static story template.

Artwork

Oh do I wish this was in color! That being said, the artwork is so charming, that I don't even mind. I'm just happy I could see all of these fantastic scenes play out. Her expressions and the fantasy elements were just enough to be different, without being over the top. I want to see a lot more of Andi Watson in both a literary setting as well as an illustrator.

Overall Feeling/Opinion

Upon finishing, I was upset that I had waited to do so! This book is not only great for kids and teens, but it kept me interested and wanting more. What else is Glister up to? Does she find any other eccentric people in her town? Does the ghost interact with her any further? I've already placed a hold on the next comic, and this time I will NOT wait to read it!
