Opinion

From Library Staff

Category: "Different Window" - I am a girl but I am not adventurous or tough. This YA graphic novel gave me an entertaining insight as to how tough girls live!

Absolutely delightful! The characters are fabulous, and their zany adventures are hilarious and suspenseful. It's perfect for older children and teens.

YA: At an *unusual* summer camp for "hardcore lady-types," Ripley, Jo, April, Mal and Molly bite off more than they can chew with conspiracies, three-eyed foxes and other reckless adventures!

What the junk! This comic is always a pleasure to read. Good mix of cutesy and action.

This zany collection is definitely cute and a fun adventure series for young-ins but personally I found all but one of the characters to be interchangeable. Nobody has any personalities yet. By the 4th issue with the evil boy scouts the writing and drawings seemed to be less random and jumbled an... Read More »

I would rate this book 4 stars, because I don't really think the book has much to do with the "kitten holy". Also, this series always made me want to read more and more of it. My favourite part in the book was when all of the girls got stuck in the caves, and all of them contributed to getting out.

Lumberjanes follows a group of girl campers (kind of like Girl Scouts) on a series of unusual adventures. I think quirky might be a good word to describe both the girls and their adventures, although there is also a supernatural element to the adventures. The girls are just girls.

This was not what I expected. I'm not sure what I expected, but this wasn't it. I am pretty sure I liked it. I am not used to comic books, so I was filled with great anger at the abrupt ending, especially since there are several pages of extra artwork at the end that led me to believe that there would still be more story.

We absolutely adore the Lumberjanes! My boys think they are great, and can't wait to read more!

This series highlights five girls experience at camp together. These graphic novels are some of my favorite. They run into mysterious supernatural stuff, bossy cabin leaders, and boy-scout rivals, etc. I highly recommend this series to middle grade readers.

Five friends are determined to have the best summer ever, even though weird supernatural stuff keeps happening at their camp. Good for anybody who has had (or ever wanted) that perfect group of friends.

Not much seems to phase these five girls. From 3-eyed-foxes to werebears to just about anything this camp can throw at them, they work together to face any challenge, as a Lumberjane should. Smart, funny and action packed with true heroines for all ages.

More middle grade than YA - a bit too silly for me to absolutely love it. But by the end of the book, I was into it. Maybe this series is best done by bingeing it in a row? Hmmm...
