Spud's Book Review: Amulet Series


Ah, Spud's (8), first book review. It's about one of his favourite graphic novel series: Amulet by Kazu Kibuishi. The 5th one just came out, in our neck of the woods, last week and he's already devoured it, so to speak, twice, at least. Read below to find out what he has to say.

1. The Stonekeeper, 2008
2. The Stonekeeper's Curse, 2009
3. The Cloud Searcher, 2010
4. The Last Council, 2011
5. Prince of the Elves, 2012

"When Emily experiences the death of her father she discovers all sorts of mysterious things and creatures including the Amulet. The elves are taking over and fighting cities. Emily uses the magic of the Amulet to try to stop them. Three words I would use to describe the books are: magic, war, and imaginative. I like the books a lot. No, I love them. They are very interesting. I liked it when Vigo and Emily were making a tribute to the fallen stonekeepers. I also like that Emily has very helpful friends. I think the illustrations are intricate, sad, and full of fantasy. I recommend these books!!! I give them a 10/10."

Thanks Spud! I hope you'll want to do more of these ...
