this was so cute! i've wanted to read katie o'neill's previous book for ages, but haven't been able to get my hands on a copy so I was thrilled to be able to get this early. this is a short little story with one of my favorite art styles. lana, our main character, is the most adorable little human. similar to an animated short, there are characters and context and a bit of magic, but the takeaway isn't any of those things. the takeaway is the environmentalist message that this story puts out. al ...more
I received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.
Review will be posted in October. This was a fabulous book and I would recommend it. Combining magic with real topics (earth warming up/pollution + mourning and loss).

Katie O'Neill can do no wrong in my opinion. This was a beautifully drawn story about loss and caring for our environment. I absolutely loved it, obviously.

I always wish O’Neill’s books were longer though. I felt like I was just getting to know the characters and then it was over.
Thank you to Oni Press for the advanced copy recei ...more
