Kid View: Escape From Lucien by Kazu Kibuishi (Amulet series, book #6)
Escape From Lucien is an amazing middle grades fantasy graphic novel that will hook any reader who is willing to open the cover. It belongs to the awesome Amulet series. I gave it 5 stars but I still think the second book is the best so far.
Most of the book is set in a place called Lucien where Navin, Aly, and General Pil meet Riva (the mayor). I like how it is very action-packed and suspenseful and then one person would say something funny and make you laugh out loud, it’s just the perfect mix of humor and suspense. My favorite part is when Navin, Aly, and Trisha teleport into the transpore chamber and the robot came down from the ceiling and checks them for lice because it is so random and silly. There are some parts that are sort of hard to follow or understand because there are only characters speaking and pictures. But most of the book is pretty clear besides the mysterious scenes where it is supposed to be a bit hazy.
These books are not the only ones Kazu Kibuishi has written, he also wrote the book Copper, and the series Explorer, Daisy Kutter, and Flight. This book is geared toward ages 8 and up. It is a bit creepy at some parts but it’s not to much or anything. I think these books are just so incredible and epic that everyone should read the entire series at least once (or twice or even three times!).
