Sarah5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for Lumberjane Fans! Reviewed in the United States on November 5, 2017Verified Purchase

I love the Lumberjanes graphic novel series and when I saw that it was going to be a full-length novel I couldn’t wait to read it. This book follows the Roanoke gang as they discover a herd of unicorns and climb a secret mountain. I have to admit that it was weird at first to read about these characters’ adventures without the comic illustrations. However, after a few chapters I got used to it and was happy to read a new story about the Lumberjane girls.

Mariko Tamaki did a good job of writing the Lumberjanes’ story in book form. I enjoyed getting a more in-depth look to the camp and the girls that can’t always be conveyed through the comics. I also really liked that this book included some of Brooke Allan’s illustrations; it wouldn’t be right to have a Lumberjanes book without some sort of artwork throughout.

This book was everything the graphic novels are: fun and lighthearted with an emphasis on girl power and friendships. The relationships between April, Jo, Ripley, Mal, and Molly is one of my favorite aspects of the Lumberjanes series so it was nice to see that it was handled so well in this novelization. My only complaint is that this book seemed to focus mostly on April, and while I love her character, I was hoping to learn more about the other girls and read from their perspectives more. However, with the way this book ended I’m hoping there will be more full-length books in this series that puts the other girls in the spotlight.

Overall, this was such a fun quick read. I loved reading about the Lumberjanes and being able to see what’s going on in their heads. And while this book does seem to be written on the younger side of middle grade, any Lumberjanes fan is sure to like it!

GoodReads Review

Jill Jemmett rated it it was amazing I’ve read a couple of the Lumberjanes graphic novels before. They’re so cute! So I had to get the middle grade novel when I heard it was coming out.

In this new story, the scouts find unicorns, not too surprising to fans of the series. What is surprising is that unicorns smell really, really bad (who knew!). They also find a mysterious foggy mountain. Let the adventures begin!

Since I haven’t read all of the graphic novels, I liked the way that there was a lot of background given on the characters and the creatures they have met in the woods before, such as Bearwoman. There are also great illustrations too, which are also helpful since I tend to get the characters mixed up sometimes.

Mariko Tamaki was a great choice to write this book. She’s so talented and she captured the Lumberjanes atmosphere and tone wonderfully in this story. I hope she continues to write the series.

This is the perfect middle grade novel for fans of the series and new readers!
