My Rating: 3/5
On a cool evening on the swamp, a figure appears dancing across the water. A human figure, but far from a human form. A Ghost, a young girl spirit that seems to have lost its way. A good Samaritan owl decides to help against the wishes of his animal brethren. What mysteries does the ghost girl hold the secrets to and what will happen when she and the owl unlock them together? Will they find out what happened to her? Will she find her way to where she needs to be? What will happen to the animals in the swamp and surrounding forest? An adventure with the most unlikely of pairs, The Ghost, the Owl.
One evening, a ghost of a young girl appears in a swamp. She doesn’t remember who she is or why she is there, and a kindly owl offers to help her.
A short graphic novel. I liked the artwork, but wasn’t a fan of how the ghost was drawn. Everything else was excellent though.
A simple and quick read. A ghost needs to find closure. An owl offers to help, despite the fact that animals are not to interfere in human affairs. As they search for answers about the ghost, they are led to a nearby cabin, where a human is in danger.
Good for older kids. This story has a great message of kindness, but gets a little dark.
I received a free digital copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
