Aquicorn Cove Reviews
Thank you to Netgalley for providing me with a copy of this graphic novel in exchange for an honest review.
This story was so cute. I was pleasantly surprised by the focus put on the environmental aspect, it was quite well done and it got the message across. The style of the author is really lovely and I enjoyed all the illustrations, especially the ones regarding the sea colony.

Katie O'Neill can do no wrong in my opinion. This was a beautifully drawn story about loss and caring for our environment. I absolutely loved it, obviously.

Another great book from the author of Princess Princess Ever After and The Tea Dragon Society! This book combines the gorgeous illustrations that we have come to expect from O'Neill with a cute story about a girl discovering some magical wildlife at her aunt's seaside home. Throughout the book she learns more about the creatures that call the area home, her own family's history with the sea, and the importance of balance when it comes to human 'p ...more
this was precious and so so important.
