Pigs Might Fly
If pigs were meant to fly they would have been born with wings, but there is no hope convincing Lily Leanchops. Lily is the daughter of an inventor, and she hopes that she can build a flying machine: something that her father was never able to do. Lily one day must save the Pigdom Plains from a dangerous enemy that emerged from the mountains. She must use her wits and her flying machine, and there is no time for a test run.
Pigs Might Fly by Nick Abadzis Jerel Dye is a graphic novel. The drawings are shaded and well detailed. The action can be a bit slow at times, but when you get halfway into the book the action is fine. The characters are sometimes disappointing, but overall they are fine. Lily is overall a good person, but sometimes she messes up. Lily never learns a lesson. She keeps making the same mistakes. The author could have worked on Lily and had her learn something. This book would be good for ages eight to twelve.
