I would give this book 3 for a review.
Graphic novel star Kazu Kibuishi creates a world of terrible, man-eating demons, a mechanical rabbit, a talking fox, a giant robot—and two ordinary children on a mission.
After the tragic death of their father, Emily and Navin move with their mother to the home of her deceased great-grandfather, but the strange house proves to be dangerous. Before long, a sinister creature lures the kids’ mom through a door in the basement. Em and Navin, desperate not to lose her, follow her into an underground world inhabited by demons, robots, and talking animals.
Eventually, they enlist the help of a small mechanical rabbit named Miskit. Together with Miskit, they face the most terrifying monster of all, and Em finally has the chance to save someone she loves.
I really enjoyed this graphic novel. I thought the plot was super engaging and found the plot to be super engaging and read it in one sitting. I loved both the lead characters and also the various sidekicks. I am curious to see what the future plots will be. This book was super heart pounding and also super fun. I also thought the drawings and writing complemented each other so well!
