This graphic novel gave me more than I expected. Beautiful artwork, powerful story. This is a great GN for middle school and up.

Overall this was a well done graphic novel that moved quickly, was action-packed, and speaks to how we all have the opportunity to be heroes, no matter what that looks like. This felt like a feudal Japan twist on Ant-Man and Thumbelina and I absolutely loved it!
