Wonderful friendships, unique characters, a beautifully developed 'history' and geography, and a very meaningful way to consider colonialism, militarism, and 'us vs. them' mentalities. We love her art so much--it inspired my younger daughter to experiment with re-creating some of her favorite panels.
