"Deep in the heart of the planet Irpa stands the Salty Pig's House of Tonics & Tinctures, home of the wise Pig Wizard and his adopted granddaughter, Bea. As keepers of the Endless Flame, they live a quiet and peaceful life, crafting medicines and potions for the people of their once-prosperous world. All that changes one day when, while walking through the woods, Bea meets Cad, a member of the Galdurians, an ancient race thought to be long-extinct. Cad believes that if anyone can help him find his missing people, it's the Pig Wizard. But when the two arrive home, the Pig Wizard is nowhere to be found--all that's left is the Jar of Endless Flame and a mysterious note. Fearing for the Pig Wizard's safety, Bea and Cad set out across Irpa to find him, while danger fights its way out of the shadows and into the light. Will these two unexpected friends find the beloved Pig Wizard and prevent eternal darkness from blanketing their world? Or has Irpa truly seen its last sunrise?"--Provided by publisher.… (more)

Bea's story is beautifully illustrated in this graphic novel that seems to glow, like it's a doorway to another living, breathing world. Bea has been living in a remote corner of a lush forest with her kind but very absent-minded grandfather when she meets a stranger. Soon she is traveling far from home and finds herself caught up in the greatest mystery of her world. I can't wait for the next book in this series! ( )

Cute artwork and story but not actually engaging enough to make me want to seek out #2.
