Tiffany Aching is a witch who lives on a farm (y'know--the butter churns itself). The Nac Mac Feegles are tiny blue men (with Scottish accents) who are extremely strong, even more silly, and love getting into trouble. Their adventures have something for every reader. After all, what's not to like about a girl who fights monsters with a frying pan?

The beautiful cover contains a series of princess stories that take on classics like Beauty and the Beast and rewrite them with more diverse casts and more feminism! The stories are fun and spunky and the art is colorful and makes the stories come alive.

This delightful tale of a young girl on a quest to save her father kept me completely spellbound as I kept looking at each page, continually finding new details in the illustrations. We follow Marcy as she navigates the complicated world of ancient Egyptian gods and ventures into the mysterious realm of the Sphinx to find her father and bring him home. Good thing adventuring runs in the family!

The gorgeous book for all ages is more than an adventure through a forest. The lush illustrations play with negative space; some of the elements rise up from the page adding a tactile dimension to the book. Part meditation, part expedition, this book contains more than meets the eye.

Two storylines: During the McCarthy era, Janet balances her love for Marie with the need for secrecy about her sexuality. In 2018, Abbie discovers 1950s lesbian pulp novels and investigates a mysterious author. Their stories--linked by scenes from one of the pulp novels--end up intersecting.

A fun story about two smart girls in their space station home with their three-headed kitten named Princess, Sparkle, and Destroyer of Worlds. What's not to love? I really enjoyed the relationship treatment in the story, both with the girls' friendship, their familial relationships, and the relationships amongst coworkers on the station.
