This Was Our Pact is a kid's graphic novel that is beautiful in both art and storytelling. Full of fantasy and adventure, the story follows Ben, who makes a pact with his friends to follow the lanterns they release annually and finally see where they go. Ben and Nathaniel, the boy who tagged along, are the only two to see the pact through and on their adventure they find a witch, a talking bear, unlikely friendships and so much more.
The art is stunning. The story has so much heart. I highly recommend this graphic novel to both kids and adults.
One of the things I love most about graphic novels is how quickly you can read them compared to traditional novels. And yet, you still get an incredible story.
Hello, from quarantine! I'm reading a ton of books lately and realized I miss talking about them. I'm also getting a bunch of Advanced Reader Copies of books and I REALLY need a place to ramble about how amazing they are. So here I am!
It's such a weird time. The library is closed to the public. We're doing a lot virtually: programs, tech help, temporary library cards, more downloadable materials... but it doesn't replace the physical library and seeing our patrons every day. I know being closed is the best decision for us right now, but that doesn't make it easy.
I hope you, dear reader, are staying busy, sane and safe. And I hope you enjoy some upcoming book reviews!
