The Lumberjanes Volume 1: Beware The Kitten Holy - Noelle Stevenson & Grace Ellis | Book Review

Monday, 4 July 2016

Rating: 5/5

"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"



Firstly I would like to say, I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS! This is such a great book for all ages, although I think it would attract a teen/young adult audience more. This graphic novel is about a group of very diverse young women who attend a summer camp and have supernatural encounters. Think 'Gravity Falls' and Girl Scouts, and that's what this is. 'Beware The Kitten Holy' is the first 4 issues of 'The Lumberjanes' and is combined as volume 1.

I think this is the first book of any kind ever to actually make me laugh out loud! I really loved how diverse and different the characters are within this volume and am happy to see such diversity being shown/read to a young audience! I love supernatural stuff like this anyway, and combined with the adventurous summer camp, there is so much to love! I really wish that these characters and summer camp was real, I would love to meet them and get stuck in their adventures!

This book/graphic novel really does embody the wealth of true friendship and how working together is the best way to solve problems! The group face many challenges and problems, and each of the characters help out in some way, weather it be strength, intelligence, skill or bravery, we can all learn something amazing from these characters.

It is also very much well saying that the artwork in this volume is INSANE! I love looking and fawning over the detailed panles in this graphic novel and if anyone questions why graphic novels are usually ore expensive than books, just show them the artwork. You can definitely tell that the artists working on this book took so much time and passion into creating this piece of wonder.

I can't wait to read the next volume!

Let me know if you have read this before, or what you thought of the other volumes, but no spoilers!

Love, K :)
