by J. Torres and Faith Erin Hicks
Rufus thinks that visiting Grammy in her little cabin in the woods will be boring.
Rufus is wrong.
When Rufus discovers a magical totem amulet, and says the magic word, all sorts of things happen: he meets helpful talking animals. He also meets jealous talking animals. He also meets don't want to give it all away.
Oh, and he turns into a Sasquatch.
When J. Torres (Teen Titans Go) joins forces with Faith Erin Hicks (Adventures of Superhero Girl), you know fun things will happen.
And they do.
This isn't a book for advanced intellectual discussion. It's more like a fast-moving Saturday morning cartoon, on paper.
I loved it.
No sex, no cussing, no blood. Some magic, and some unexpected friendships. For readers ages 8 to, um, me.
The events may not have happened; still, the story is true. --R. Silvern
