At Miss Qiunzilla Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet’s camp for hard-core lady-types, things are not what they seem. Three-eyed foxes. Secret caves. Anagrams. Luckily, Jo, April, Mal, Molly, and Ripley are five rad, butt-kicking best pals determined to have an awesome summer together… And they’re not gonna let a magical quest or an array of supernatural critters get in their way! The mystery keeps getting bigger, and it all begins here.

Collects Lumberjanes No. 1-4.

I think that Lumberjanes is one of those series that’s hard to miss when you’re in the book blogging world, but I never really had any intention of reading it. Or, I guess I should say, I never really had any intention of reading it until I was reading The Backstagers and saw that it was listed as a similar title. For once, I think that’s a really valid comparison!

There are a lot of things to love about Lumberjanes. It was cute. It was fun. It’s full of friendship and puns and strange creatures. There are cats. Anagrams play a pretty big role. It’s a super quick read. Things I liked a little less were some of the dialogue (it felt a little forced at times) and the fact that this seems to be written for a younger audience than I’m used to, even compared with some of the other YA graphic novels I’ve read. Those are kind of me problems and not overall problems, though.

All in all, this was a really fun graphic novel! It wasn’t really what I expected, but in a really good way. I’ll have to check out Noelle Stevenson’s other work.
