Aster and the Accidental Magic

We rated this book:


Aster has to move to the country, which is boring to her. Her mom knows a lot about birds and is trying to fix the migration problem. Aster meets a granny who gives her a dog named Buzz. Buzz can talk like humans. Aster takes the granny’s place by becoming the new Queen of Summer. Aster needs to defeat the Chestnut Knights and their Fox boss, who kidnapped her father. Will Aster succeed?

There is a glossary of characters at the back of the book. I didn’t realize that it was there until after I finished reading the book. It would have been better if the glossary of characters was in the beginning of the book.

I think the illustrations are very cute, especially the Chestnut Knights. The illustrations remind me a little bit of the Hilda series. The story was funny, too. I really like stories with a heroine, and it is up to the brave heroine to save the day.

I highly recommend this book to any graphic novel fan. I’m happy to add this to my library collection.
