Review: Castle in the Stars: The Space Race of 1869 by Alex Alice

by Alex Alice Series: Le Chateau des Etoiles Published by First Second on September 2017 Genres: Graphic Novel Pages: 64 Format: Physical Book Source: Publisher Goodreads It’s the space race in 1869 in a kind of alternate past. … When you see the book itself, it’s this big, oversized object with this incredible watercolor comics style, and it’s this really big, epic, sweeping story of a boy following in his mother’s discovery and then opening up the solar system, but in the age of the 1800s.

Blog Tour Stop! Mighty Jack and the Goblin King by Ben Hatke

Mighty Jack and the Goblin King by Ben Hatke Published by First Second on September 2017 Genres: Graphic Novel Format: ARC Buy on Amazon Goodreads The garden behind Jack’s house has gone wild with creatures set loose by the magic beans Jack and his kid sister Maddy planted. One particularly mean creature has kidnapped Maddy and carried her off. Now Jack and his neighbor Lilly must follow her to a world between worlds beyond the vines and stalks, where giants grind the bones of human children to feed their beast in the castle up above, and a fearsome goblin king rules down below. It'll take more than Lilly’s bag of concoctions and tricks, and more than one hero, to rescue Maddy, reunite Jack's family, and bring them all safely home again. Thank you to First Second for allowing me to participate in this blog tour! What a fun sequel! If you haven’t read the first book Mighty Jack, go get it. You need to read it to fully enjoy this fast paced sequel. I devoured the first book Mighty Jack only to plunge head fist into the sequel. It was filled with as much fun and imagination as the first.
