I like books set in Canada, and I like Hope Larson. She put in just a touch of magic which I thought was cute. The parallel stories were nice and so was the history. ( )

Odd little book. Love Hope Larson's illustration style. Fully enjoyed the two parallel stories. Didn't really like the ending, but it did leave me thoughtful and wondering, so, still a good book. ( )

Not a big fan of this one. Very creepy and strange, but also hard to follow at times. The ending was weird and fit the whole vibe of the book, but I have read graphic novels I like better. Although, I did like the illustrations. ( )

The first thirteen pages of this are very cool. (I liked the rest, too.)
