What a mystery!
Jo, April, Mal, Molly, and Ripley are not your average campers and Miss Qiunzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet’s Camp for Hardcore Lady-Types is not your average summer camp. Between the river monsters, magic, and the art of friendship bracelets, this summer is only just beginning. Join the Lumberjanes as they take on raptors and a sibling rivalry that only myths are made of.
This New York Times bestseller and Eisner Award-nominated series is written by awesome all-star Noelle Stevenson and brilliant newcomer Grace Ellis, and illustrated by the tremendously talented Brooke Allen.
Lumberjanes, Vol. 2: Friendship to the Max includes issues 5-8.
Lumberjanes is fun and cute, but I’m not totally wowed by the storytelling in this series. Since this nicely wrapped up the plot lines introduced in Volume 1, I don’t feel compelled to continue with the series. I have the first two volumes in my classroom library for my comic book class, but I don’t see myself purchasing additional volumes in the series unless a high student demand develops.
