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.
