Jo, April, Mal, Molly, and Ripley are not your average campers and Miss Qiunzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet's Camp for Hardcore Lady-Types is not your average summer camp. Between the river monsters, magic, and the art of friendship bracelets, this summer is only just beginning. Join the Lumberjanes as they take on raptors and a sibling rivalry that only myths are made of.
This New York Times bestseller and Eisner Award-nominated series is written by awesome all-star Noelle Stevenson and brilliant newcomer Grace Ellis, and illustrated by the tremendously talented Brooke Allen."
Once I finished the first installment of Lumberjanes, I was so excited to keep reading this series! The fun continues in this whirlwind of a graphic novel.
I'll keep things short here, because I really do believe that these books need to be enjoyed with as few spoilers as possible from start to finish. I enjoyed how funny it is and how fearlessly themselves all of the characters are. I love this about the entire series (or at least what I've had the privilege to read so far). The other piece that I thought was absolutely fascinating was the inclusion of a mythology piece. It was unexpected, but it worked, so it was very believable with the rest of the story. And since these are stories that I had heard of before, even just in passing, it sort of lent credibility to help the rest of the story along.
I can't say enough positive things about this series. I think they're best enjoyed in volumes so that you can settle in with this story, so if you can get ahold of a full volume, definitely do!
Overall, I give 'Lumberjanes: Friendship to the Max':
